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.

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 seeher 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

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 timeand 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.

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 diagnosisand 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 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 Iknew 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.
