Dr. Eric J Foltz has the following 2 specialties
A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.
A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

Definately not a Migraine Specialist
Self-verified patient of Dr. Eric J Foltz - Posted on January 9th, 2019
Referred to them for Migraine headaches. I have had Migraines for 40+ years and have a fairly good understanding of what causes mine and what is needed for treatment. My reason for calling them was for a new Migraine Drug Released in Sept. of 2018. that has proven to be very successful in greatly reducing Migraines. (I was on the clinical drug trial) They had no idea this drug was available (one of two new drugs in last 6 months) Office staff was clearly lacking in knowledge and the ability to assist with any thing.
Misdiagnosed and lied to about my insurance coverage

Misdiagnosed me with Epilepsy
Self-verified patient of Dr. Eric J Foltz - Posted on July 23rd, 2018
First let me start off by saying, DO NOT go here. Even if its your only option and you're looking to get in somewhere quick. Wait for the real deal. On my very first appointment with Dr. Foltz, I explained to him that I had passed out. He immediately wrote me a prescription for Anti-Epileptic drugs even though I had had ZERO tests done and had only met with him once. I refused the meds and came back the next week for an EEG. After my EEG, i was called in and he informed me my EEG was abnormal and i needed to start on medication immediately. I then started on medication but always felt like something was wrong. I decided to get a second opinion and asked the office staff to send my information to a new neurologist which they refused to do. Then I asked for my EEG disk to have it read by another neurologist and it took them a month to get it to me. Once i finally go my EEG disk, it was blank. They gave me two more EEG disks and they were both blank as well. When I finally got a working EEG disk, I brought it to my new neurologist who read it and SAID MY EEG WAS NORMAL. I WAS MISDIAGNOSED WITH EPILEPSY. Thank goodness I followed my gut and got a second opinion or I would be living the rest of my life thinking I had Epilepsy. So again, DO NOT GO HERE. Not only was the office staff horrible all around, so was the doctor.

On top of his game
Self-verified patient of Dr. Eric J Foltz - Posted on October 18th, 2016
Very skeptical seeing a doctor so young ~ my fears were put aside quickly with his apparent knowledge & taking time to listen attentively to me. My concerns with any and everything were addressed and Dr. Foltz has continued his great care with me after all these years. Highly recommrnd. Office staff are good & his medical assistant is of the charts wonderful.
