Dr. Carrie J Folse 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.

Apparently this staff fails to look at patient files I was scolded for sharing what the doctors decision was about where my procedure was best handled which was uab. I was also accused of not following up which in fact I did sharing earlier in the year that my health was too frail at the time to go under anesthesia for a 3rd endoscopy. Seems patient blaming and failure to review patient files id's a current trend.

Dr. Folse is a busy physician who is matter of fact. She talks with you, examines you and then tells you what you need to do. She doesn't sugar coat anything. I appreciate that fact and prefer a straightforward approach. I want a physician like that! My time is important too, so I don't want a doctor to give me nicely maybe's. She doesn't take no from an insurance company either. Staff is very friendly & helpful.

4 Star Physician

Dr. Folse could stand to be tad friendlier but I can tell that's just not her demeanor. However, I would trade friendliness any day for having an knowledgeable physician. The wait time is a bit long too. Her staff is very friendly and she is an excellent doctor in every other regard.
