Dr. Folker's bedside manner was less an good. In fact it was terrible. I will not go back to him. I wouldn't go back to him if he was the last doctor on earth.
Cody, WY |
Terrible experience. Dr. Folker seemed bothered by the fact that he even had to see me. I was very upset by some symptoms I was having and nervous to see a Dr. He brushed everything aside and would not treat me. Instead he told me to lose weight and see another Dr. if I was so concerned. He spoke with me for maybe 5 minutes and the bill was close to 900$. I will never recommend him, and you couldn't pay me to go see him again. In the end I did see another Dr. and found out I had thyroid cancer.

Very thorough and intelligent in communicating. Absolutely did a fantastic job on my surgery. Quicker than normal recovery with as good as could be expected interim recovery.
