Verified Patient Reviews
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. She explained 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 was very friendly and attentive. She presented a diagnostic that no other doctor considered before. I absolutely recommend her, no matter how though the case.
Dr. Foont was right off the bat very approachable, kind, and funny. She listened carefully to my symptoms and gave me her best possible diagnosis, even drawing a diagram to help me with my anatomy questions. She was wonderful and eased my worries immediately!
I can't say enough wonderful things about Dr. Foont! She took the time to listen to my concerns and ailments. She is very kind and personable. The best GI doc I've ever been to, and I have sadly been to a lot.
Dr. Julie Foont was great, I was seen right away and felt very comfortable. Dr. Foont was a great listener and provided me with some great information
Only issues I experiences was that the information I uploaded to Zocdoc didn't fully transfer over to the office. Besides that everything was professional, friendly and timely. Dr. Foont is a great doctor.
So competent, funny, on time, and just amazing. I really felt heard and helped upon leaving her office.
She was really sweet and personable. Made me feel very comfortable.
Very grateful for her compassionate and professional attention
Dr. Foont was one of the best doctors I've seen. She really took her time to listen to my symptoms and even told me before the appointment started to take my time explaining. She put me at ease about what I was feeling, and explained what she thought was going on thoughtfully and in detail. Overall, one of the better doctor experiences I've had!
She was awesome! She seemed to genuinely care about what was going on with me and took her time to listen to all my concerns. I? finally found a good doctor in the city and have a good idea of what is going on with me. She even recommended other great doctors to me when I? expressed concern over other doctors I? have seen. She is great! Would definitely recommend and will be going back.
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 discussing my 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.

They made an unpleasant procedure as pleasant as possible. But did not like that she and a male anesthesiologist entered my dressing room before I was done changing into the gowns.
This was my first visit with Dr. Foont and I will be going back to see her in the future. She listened to my concerns and needs and suggested blood work and further analysis of what could be causing my discomfort. She is a down to earth doctor and I was very pleased with my visit.

Dr Foont actually listens then applies her knowledge to help you. She's accessible. I have a clear way of how to move forward with my problem. Her first instinct is not to push lots of tests. I finally found a doctor !
Ugh I love Dr. Foont and all her staff. Only if all my doctors could be like her or if she could be my doctor for all my needs..that'd be awesome. I didn't have to sit there forever waiting to see her and she took the time to listen to me, explain things, made sure all my questions were answered, never rushed and actually made me feel like she cared. I'm usually apprehensive about going to any doctor but her bedside manner is so great she made me feel at ease. Highly recommend her and her office
The entire staff was friendly and welcoming. Dr. Foont was quite knowledgable and put me at ease. Her warmth and intelligence make me excited to keep working with her.

She was so great and made me feel very comfortable. Never felt judged. And she seemed to genuinelt care about finding a correct diagnosis and helping me get better.
Dr Foont performed my first colonoscopy in 8 years (I'm 63 and was long overdue) on 3/3/17. She's a fantastic gastroenterologist. Knowledgeable, friendly, warm, reassuring and all around great. And, most important, she gives you her time and attention and listens to you carefully. Her office staff is organized, friendly, professional, courteous and totally available and super-responsive via phone and email. I was referred to her by my spouse who shares my views, so this is really 2 great reviews in one.
Thorough, personable, professional, and on time -- ideal visit.
Dr. Foont is the BEST. She made me feel very comfortable, and we had great conversation. I never felt rushed. She answered my questions, asked me lots of questions, and covered everything in detail. She's smart, insightful, personable and fun. I never thought I'd enjoy any doctor visit so much, not to mention a visit for gastroenterology!
This was my first visit with Dr. Foont and it was a wonderful visit. She is warm and friendly as well as thorough. She provided clear explanation relative to what to expect before, during and after the procedure and you never got the feeling you were being rushed. The office environment is warm, friendly and extremely professional and efficient. I could not leave the office without complimenting the efficiency of my visit. Everything flowed quite smoothly with no wsit time. I would recommend Dr. Foont.

Easy going, very friendly and knowledgeable. Consultation and procedure were on time, as scheduled.
Dr. Foont was amazing, and gave me counseling both on a previous diagnosis as well as a clear cut plan of action on next steps. She was focused, well informed, and taught me so many great things that I wish I knew when receiving my original diagnosis that would have made life much easier. Her bed side manner was impeccable, and I truly felt like she saw me both as a patient and as a person and treated me as such. I definitely recommend her.
Perfect! thank you for everything!
The office staff was professional and kind. I was seen right away. Dr. Foont listened to my concerns, explained the probable diagnosis and needed test clearly, and calmed my fears. Plus she's funny and really seems like she cares about each and every patient.
I had a great experience with Dr. Foont. Although modern medicine seems to be a bit behind in the gastro department, she was friendly, intelligent, and worked hard to make sure she wasn't missing anything important to help reach a diagnosis and treatment. For such an uncomfortable topic of conversation (who wants to talk about their gastro problems?) she made me feel at ease. The office and nursing staff are all lovely too, and took time to learn my name as I was a frequent client for a few months. If my stomach starts to act up again I would definitely go back to Dr. Foont.
Dr Foont was very amicable, made me feel at ease. I felt that she had the time for me and listened carefully to my symptoms and read closely my ER report. She was highly professional in providing me her diagnostic and directed me to an equally professional radiology center.
I love this woman. I feel like I am talking to a college friend- never feel uncomfortable to ask anything, and given the type of Dr. she is, that is not always a given. She's totally thorough and rules out every single possibility and explains everything, never rushing you out. Definitely go to Dr. Foont.
Doctor Foont is the best doctor I have ever met. She took the right time to listen to me and cared about my health situation in a professional way. She made me feel at ease and gave me a lot of different options in order to solve my problem. I highly recommend her!
The whole experience was completely professional
She's a wonderful listener and gets to the bottom of your problem. She's really helped me with my IBS and sent me for a CT scan which lead to the discovery of an infected kidney stone and that problem is now being solved. Thank you Dr. Foont!
Dr. Foont is a god send. She listened when other doctors wouldn't and tirelessly searched for answers for my complex and confusing stomach problems. She was helpful in finding second opinions and always made me feel like my health was her #1 priority. She is still my doctor and I am always happy with my care.
Excellent doctor !!! Unprofessional office workers from the front desk to billing. I would never return.
This was my second visit with Dr Foont and I find her to be a warm, thoughtful and knowledgeable doctor. She is a very good listener and I never feel rushed in her presence. Dr Foont speaks clearly and is thorough with her information. I have no doubt that she truly cares for the well-being of her patients and I look forward to my visits. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
The staff and the doctor were very understanding and through.
So kind, and took the time to listen and diagnose. Also took time to give me all the options for treatment instead of just going straight to medication explained other things that could make things better.
She was open to questions and had a caring manner.

Her office staff is very unprofessional. They routinely left results with my EMERGENCY contact when I was easily accessible and often called for results of tests that were not my own.
Professional, Kind, Knowlegeable! Easy to talk to and makes you feel comfortable and in good hands.
She's great. Lovely, personable, thorough, and professional. Holistic thinker as well. Highly recommend.
Excellent doctor. She really cares for her patients and takes time to answer all of your questions or concerns.
My appointment was great! I definitely recommend Dr. Foont
I wish more doctors were like Dr. Foont. Talking to her was more like talking to a friend than a doctor. She was patient, friendly, and listened to me talk through my medical history without looking at her watch or clipboard. Then, she made recommendations and explained the reasons behind them. How refreshing to find a doctor who is more concerned about the patient than patient turnover. I actually left the office happier than when I arrived. So yeah... I wish I had more doctors like Dr. Foont.
Great doctor that listens and gives options and explanations. Staff was also extremely nice. I would recommend her!
She was very personable and knowledgeable. She had me in and out, I will definitely recommend her!!!

She and her staff were friendly, efficient, and helpful. I would highly recommend her!
Dr. Foont is excellent! She listens carefully and explains what the problem may be about. She is interested in the physical health as well as the circumstances in which the patients live. This is obviously especially important for a GI doctor. I was very relaxed there and confident that I was getting great medical care.

Couldn't have been more pleased by my appointment with Dr. Foont. Her staff was pleasant and efficient and I was with the doctor within five minutes of my appointment time. She was friendly, attentive, and respectful. She doesn't waste time and is very professional but I never once felt rushed or like she was just trying to get to her next appointment. Will definitely stick with this office and Dr. Foont and would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone in search of a doctor who is actually trying to help.
Excellent physician, very caring and personable.
I have to say that I never ever take the time to write posts like these. I've seen tons and tons of doctors and Dr. Foont is, hands down, the best doctor I have ever met. I can go through a list of things I love, but it's simpler to just say, she is AMAZING. Her staff is quick and attentive; she is funny, intelligent and really kind. I'm so glad I found her on ZocDoc. WONDERFUL!
Nice practice with several doctors working together. Super-efficient front office staff, processed me as a new patient in just a few minutes, and the doctor saw me right away, no waiting time at all. That's a "medical miracle" right there. Dr. Foont is very professional, nice relaxed style.
