Patient Comments (3)
Holland, MI |
Prescribed wrong dosage of medicine not knowing there was a higher strength dosage available which delayed meds for days. Called after hours and asked to correct prescription but never returned call or called pharmacy. Seems very reluctant to help patient and is very reserved. Very disappointed.

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.
