Dr. Foont is very thorough and she puts you at ease immediately. You are not rushed and she takes the time to listen to your concerns. I left my first consult feeling elated knowing that I finally found a great gastroenterologist. My prep for my endoscopy and colonoscopy went very smooth. It was very tolerable. Needless to say, speaking to Dr. Foont the morning of my procedure and taking the time to see if I had concerns, how the prep went and making sure I was ready was amazing to me. Again, never rushed and she just makes you feel like you are a team. The procedure went great and her follow up was very thorough as well. At high risk, I will be seeing her again in three year’s. I highly recommend Dr. Foont and her practice. You will love this Doctor and will not be disappointed! JA

Dr. Foont is the most caring, thorough doctor I have ever been to see. Dr. Foont spends as much time as necessary to talk, not only to make sure that she has every piece of important information, but also to make sure that the patient fully understands what is going on.Dr. Foont really listens, and makes talking about subjects that can feel embarrassing remarkable easy. I have never had more confidence in a doctor. Amazing!
