We choose Dr Folkening when we got married and started a family, wanting a young Dr to stay with us and our children through the years. He has been an excellent choice, very thorough, wise, compassionate and knowledgeable. We've been with him 36 years and no regrets.

Dr. Folkening and his staff are excellent. His nurse practitioner Sonia is also great! I've been going to this office for 25 years and they've always treated me well.
