I called to make an appointment with Dr. Fohl, and when I gave my insurance information the receptionist realized it was a medicaid plan and said "We don't take that." I said "Oh, Dr. Fohl listed online as accepting medicaid online." and she replied "I know, they won't take us of their list." in an annoyed tone, which made me feel pretty embarrassed. I realize that answering the same question gets old, but "I'm so sorry, that's actually a clerical error." would have been more professional.

My experience with Dr Fohl was extremely disappointing. He was very unprofessional, and spent very little time on the actual reason I came to be seen. He talked about his personal life and his credentials. The worst part was that upon finding out I have Rheumatoid Arthritis, he listed off every possible negative outcome, and even made fun of my walk . I am very aware of the possible negative effects of RA. I came there for a spot on my toe, not to feel defeated and in tears because of my RA.

I saw Dr. Fohl to have a mole removed and was extremely disappointed with his lack of professionalism. He spent 90% of our time talking about non medical issues, cussing, and being crude. I was shocked.
