Excellent care with this great physician. Caring, considerate, intelligent and very knowledgeable about and with patient care. My family has been patients of Dr. Fogolin for almost as many years as he has practiced. Would never consider changing doctors as long as he is practicing medicine. He is the BEST in his field of practice. .

I have been to Dr Fogolin several times for various injuries and i wouldn't go anywhere else.

Dr. Fogolin has been a life-changer for me and my family. He is very knowledgeable and thorough, and walks with you through the entire process of recovery. Just as importantly, I know that he and his staff care about me and want the best for me during and after the procedure and recovery. I recommend him to anyone who asks about an orthopedic surgeon.

I was very pleased with the care from Dr Fogolin and staff. Professional. Listened to my concerns
in Hendersonville, TN |
I called Dr. Fogolin's office after I fell and broke my ankle. They gave me an appointment that day! Another orthopedic surgeon was too busy and was going to make me wait all week to get in. Dr. Fogolin took great care in making sure my ankle was fixed right with surgery. The follow up visits with him and his staff were excellent. Each employee was very nice. The Surgery center was excellent as well. More personal care. My whole experience was great. Thank you Dr. Fogolin & Staff!!

I would recommend Dr. Fogolin because he saw me immediately after I was recommended. He was thorough in examining and explaining my x-rays and my break. He insisted I do physical therapy and I was thinking it would be a waste of my time. It wasn't! It helped the pain to subside and for me to get the full motion back in my arm! He recommended a bone density test and an examination by my endocrinologist for future protection against broken bones. He is smart and experienced and I appreciate that!
in Portland, TN |
Wow!!! Dr. Fogolin is an amazing Doctor. He fixed my left knee that I was having trouble with and I have had no problems since. Very patient and kind. I would strongly recommend this doctor, so friendly.
in Hendersonville, TN |
Dr. Fogolin was very understanding of my desire to address my knee injury without surgery if possible. After succumbing to continued swelling and pain, he was able to narrow down my diagnosis with an MRI, and explained the surgery procedure throughly, as well as what I could expect to feel post op and after the healing period. Most importantly, Dr. Fogolin went to bat for me when my insurance carrier did not want to approve my surgery. My surgery went well.
in Gallatin, TN |
Have been using him for 4 or 5 years now, would not think of looking anywhere else. I am 70 yrs. old and present quiet a problem for him but he will tell you if you need to see some one else for a specific problem that is not in his area of expertise. Probably the best Dr. I have ever had. He also has a professional staff that will look after you. Mac McCaleb
