Specialties

Dr. Amy E Foxx-Orenstein has the following 2 specialties

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Beware

I read Dr Foxx-Orenstein's reviews online, many of which were not good! I decided to give our visit a chance anyway and the first appointment was great. She was thorough and made me laugh. On the second visit, her personality was a lot different. I had gotten an infection (C. Diff) and had to spend a week in the hospital/ICU as a result of some antibiotics that her team had prescribed. I don't blame any of them- infections happen! But I did tell her that I wish they had discussed with me how high risk I was to catch C Diff again (I'd had it before and had told them). When I told her that, she literally went off. She yelled a lot and was saying that I have been sick long enough to know I was high-risk and it was no one's fault but my own (I'd gone kayaking and had to get airlifted to a hospital when I got sick). I was shocked by her statement and started crying. That seemed to make her even more angry and she said "I think we're done here." I told her I had done everything she'd told me to do but I didn't think I deserved to be talked to that way.

Horrible bedside manner

My experience was very negative. She talks down to you, is degrading, and absent of compassion.

Incomprehensible

This woman was SO degrading. My mother was even in shock. I have never been able to walk into Mayo Clinic again w/out bursting into tears. I have never received an apology just horrid excuses. I will never be returning to her & if anyone inquires w/me about going to her for eval etc. they know my opinion solely by seeing my expression. 1 of the doctors that made my faith in medical personnel the lowest it could ever be. IF there were negative stars that is where I'd be rating her at. At least the other staff I interacted with were not of her attitude, so that is the only reason that any of this rating gets 2 stars. Incomprehensible.

Upset Former Patient

Extremely rude, arrogant, with very poor professional bed-side manner that literally recommended a surgery that would solve all of my problems and misrepresented reason and possible outcomes. I would never have allowed the surgery if she would have told me if it didnt work i would be left worse off than before the surgery. After the surgery was done and it wasnt working and I was getting worse, she blamed me for my problems and said it was my fault and then hoped I would go away. I found out after the surgery there was no game plan and there never had been. If i could have; I would have sued her for everything she had. She ruined my life and got away with it.

patient

Dr. Foxx-Orenstein is distracted. She prioritizes her own experimental ideas without transparency. She did not provide me any alternative treatment options and lacked any sense of urgency in seeking my betterment. She is biased, self-involved, and callous. She does not follow up with patients and is complacent to their on-going health concerns. I felt hopeless and exhausted as her patient.
