Terrible experience with the doctor and his office. couldn't get my records when I needed to switch to a more competent doctor.
in Delray Beach, FL |
Dr. Foltz operated on me twice for cervical fusions. Once in 2000, and the 2nd time in 2013. I was in agonizing pain in 2000 for 8 months before I was referred to him. He spent 2 hours with me and I knew immediately that I could put my life in his hands. When I woke up from the surgery. I thought I died and went to heaven because I was totally pain free. That's why I searched him out so many years later when I realized I needed another cervical fusion. I trust him with my life!!

He is amazing. he saved my life.

Unfortunately, this (dare I call him) doctor performed surgery on my father. Now in chronic pain and essentially incapacitated. Uncaring and callous about the terrible outcome. Would not recommend him to my worst enemy.
