After researching GI doctors, I decided to see Dr. Foont. From the beginning, the experience was exceptional! The staff members are friendly and professional. I didn't expect to be seen as quickly but that's a good thing! Dr. Foont listenedwhile I gave her the history of my condition and immediately began planning the next steps in my care. She is very personable and thorough and patiently took the time to explain a few different procedures that will be happening in the near future, in a way that was clear and concise. I felt very comfortable throughout the appointment.

I actually went to Dr. Foont on the recommendation of someone I know, because I've become wary of online reviews, and she was so wonderful. She listened to all of my symptoms and asked follow-up questions about each of them. Sheexplained the possible sources of these problems and how they relate to each other and even asked questions about the things I thought probably weren't a big deal. She took my pain and discomfort seriously; normally I hit a point halfway through an appointment where I realize that the doctor isn't fully listening, so I just give up and end up not feeling comfortable disclosing everything, but she made me feel at ease. I'm glad I went regardless of what the end result is. It's exhausting going from doctor to doctor trying to find someone who listens, and I'm glad I finally did.

Dr. Foont saw me immediately as she arrived, before my scheduled appointment time. She was very friendly and personable. This was my first visit to a GI doctor and I couldn't be more pleased. She made me feel very comfortable discussingmy symptoms and didn't hesitate to probe for more information from me that I may have left out. She also took the time to answer all of my questions. I felt she was actually listening and trying to find the root of the problem rather than just treat the symptoms. I highly recommend.
