May 28, 2020 2:03 PM

The office was very clean. All patients should be provided a mask & gloves.

April 7, 2020 5:19 AM

The nurses & clerks were not helpful at all so I had to guide them to reach the doctor by paging him to relay the message. They kept giving me standard response to wait time he was back in office. Also my follow up visit was concerned twice and I had to debate w/clerk/registration desk that I got another call that day to cancel appt. Need better system.

March 2, 2020 7:10 AM

I think they were great questions. It was happy to take care of this alone.

Very pleased at the suggestion to see my regular provider for a referral to the gastroenterologist concerning my bowels.

November 7, 2019 10:13 AM

All questions I asked were satisfactory. May not have been what I wanted to hear but seemed honest enough to me. (That there is no care for hives) it is treatable with the pills.

October 9, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Foggs is always patient and informative.

October 9, 2019 7:00 PM

September 9, 2019 7:00 PM

I am very grateful to Dr. Foggs for listening to my questions and concerns with respect and giving me a thorough education, (including printing out relevant articles!). The tests he ordered gave me valuable information. Now I feel I really have a handle on my health issues and am more empowered to make good decisions. Dr. Foggs gave me a path forward.

September 8, 2019 7:00 PM

I was pleased to get in to see Dr. Foggs. I've seen him for 20 years and his advice is always important to dealing with my allergies and their impact on my health overall.

June 6, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Michael Foggs is a very knowledgeable person.

May 19, 2019 7:00 PM

He was the best doctor I've ever seen. He spent so much time with me and seemed to care a lot.

May 9, 2019 7:00 PM

The visit went good. We talked about symptoms and what they could mean.

May 5, 2019 7:00 PM

It's refreshing to have a provider with in depth knowledge that bases his recommendations on science, logic and rationale. I also appreciated him taking time to give specific explanations.

April 29, 2019 7:00 PM

My experience with Dr. Michael Foggs was not good for me . First appointment was for 1:00PM I waited in room for 1 1/2 hours it was 2 hrs before I was able to see him. Then it went down hill from there.

April 2, 2019 7:00 PM

I didn't like the way he talk to me. Very arrogant, no bedside manner.

March 26, 2019 7:00 PM

This provider discussed things with me and I have a better understanding of things we talked about.

March 11, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Foggs was very knowledgeable but lacked a warm "bedside manner." Had trouble looking at his patient & did a lot of lecturing instead of communicating (eye contact) with me.

February 20, 2019 6:00 PM

This provider was very concern about my health and gave me very good advice.

December 13, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. Foggs is the best! My regular PCP and others don't know how to care for difficult asthma patients. Dr. Foggs saved my life! I often recommend him. He's kept me out of the ER & hospital!

December 4, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. Foggs is a professional in every sense. He not only fully explains my options to me, but he also listens at what I have to say.

November 26, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. Michael Foggs seems to be a very good listener and makes sure I understand his suggestion. Because sometimes I think I have it clear but he corrects me so that I do know what he's suggesting. I appreciate that! I except to receive my results any day now, from the lab work. I am impressed how he has treated my allergy, so far.

November 26, 2018 6:00 PM

Always thorough.

November 15, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. Foggs was very courteous.

October 21, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr Foggs is knowledgeable, polite and patient. I am assured that he will get to the bottom of my health issues.

October 12, 2018 7:00 PM

September 17, 2018 7:00 PM

August 16, 2018 7:00 PM

My appointment was at 8:00 AM the doctor did not even arrive to the office until 8:45. It was 9:20 before he came in to see me (his first patient) then he walked out to take a phone call came back 10 min. later. Then went back out again to get me information about medial equipment and he was gone for 20 more minutes I finally opened the door and told them I had to get my kids because it was 10:20 AM already.

June 19, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Foggs is always amazing to my 93 y/o father. He always relates to my dad on a personal level and takes time to listen & talk to my father. Usually he is able to get great information from my dad just by who he is to my dad as a patient.

June 17, 2018 7:00 PM

Took two minutes to tell me I didn't have sinus problems. But give me a bunch of pamphlets on sinus buster nasal spray.
