Definately not a Migraine Specialist

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

He said I might have epilepsy and ran several tests that didn't prove anything. He also said my insurance covered everything which was a lie. Now I'm being harassed to pay medical bills from him he said were covered.

Misdiagnosed me with Epilepsy

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.

Two Stars

diagnosis based on nerve conduction study was flatly wrong, and inappropriate referral based on that was a waste of my time; other neurologists confirmed misdiagnosis

On top of his game

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.
