He is a very knowledge and you can tell he has years of experience. I had LASIK done on both eyes a few months ago and I wish I had done it sooner! My LASIK was done in the office, which is convenient I didn't have to travel to another location. Highly recommend Dr. Foulkes. Trust me!

This doc is a horrible doctor. He did my intacs surgery charged me 24k but I did not see any improvement what so ever. I went through such a painful experience. His staff is not that great either. Horrible customer service as well. All he cares about is money and whenever you ask him questions he starts talking about random doctor's conferences he has been to.
