Dr. Fouse was an excellent doctor who was able to pinpoint my issue with my knee immediately with x-rays and a steroid injection. He made me feel confident that I would be able to return to my level of physical activity fairly quickly.

Nice guy, one thing bothered me, asked the Doctor before a steroid shot if there were any side effects, he said none really except infection, which was very rare, as long as I didn't have any 'weird allergies' or known allergies, which i don't. I have never had a steroid shot, but ten minutes after I left the office I had real pain and it was quite bad all night, which would be worth mentioning potential pain, potentially bad, as a possible side effect?! Seemed like a big omission.

I came to Dr. Fouse on a workers comp claim concerning a tear in my shoulder. He thoroughly explained my condition and the treatment he recommended for me. I found him very professional and courteous. I never felt rushed and he politely answered any questions I had. I have suffered three months of pain along with the bureaucracy of workers comp. After talking with Dr. Fouse I left my appointment feeling better of my situation. Albeit this has been my first visit with him.

This person does not have sensitivity towards patients or ethics. He released me MMI while still having chief complains of ongoing issues according to his manipulated interpretation of a knee MRI showing an ACL deficiency after 1st MRI showed a complete tear. 3rd MRI and addendum to 2nd plus 2 other Doctor's opinions and a second KT-1000 test shows his manipulation but he responded saying he was not in charge anymore after he purposely damaged my claim with his siding with insurance. STAY AWAY!

I waited 1 hour and 15 minutes to actually have a 10 minute consultation with Dr. Fouse. I never felt like I had a adequate visit. No discussion of my X rays just a quick assessment. Even tho I had a shot and recommended physical therapy, I felt that the exam was rushed and not important to him. I won’t see him again. Never asked if I had any questions.

I went to Dr Fouse for a workman’s Comp knee injury and found him reckless and without real concern for my well being . He diagnosticed me quickly from a X-ray stating he would not do surgery because of the arthritis, gave me a cortisone shot. I then asked him what he thought of the MRI I had done. Dr. Fouse never looked at it or my file I guess. I would not let this uninformed Dr do anymore and left. Please don’t go to him

Best decision my workers comp insurance could have done for me, by setting up an appointment for my knees to Dr. Matthew Fouse. Throughly examining both of my knees and found inflammation build up from the fall I had. Gave me steroid shots in both knees and I will say instant relief. I am one happy person. I highly recommend Dr Fouse for the throughly examine and explaining everything in detail about what was going on. Thank you Dr Fouse
