My doctor had a "student in training" whom I saw first. I recommend him highly as well. He had a great professional manner, listened respectfully and asked appropriate questions. Dr. Folger came in after a short consult with him and was her wonderful self. She is great!

I left the office knowing exactly what I should do should I have a problem - who to contact - what to expect and who to talk to. My feeling after just one visit with Dr. Folger - is that I had I been under her care a few years back I would be considerably healthier than I am now!

I love Dr. Folger and her team. She is the most careful, helpful, respectful and personable dr. I have seen as an adult - Only problem is that her office moved very far from my home. I liked it better then the office was more centrally located.

Dr. Folger was excellent. All my concerns were important and she was going to find out what was happening to my body. I was very fortunate to have her as a doctor. I would highly recommend her to anyone that was looking for a doctor. When l left her office, I felt one hundred percent better.

We felt comfortable from the moment we entered the office. The receptionist was pleasant and so was the technician who weighed and took blood pressure. The Dr came in promptly and was very pleasant and kind. She listened to our concerns and offered a variety of suggestions. It was such a pleasant experience in many ways!

This was my first visit with Dr. Folger. I am so grateful to be her patient. She is by far the best healthcare provider I have found. She is knowledgeable and she is a good listener. She reviewed what medical records were available to her, and will send for the rest. Dr. Folger is the physician I have been looking for!

All experiences for first visit as new patient with new managed care provider, Pacific Source was excellent. I am hard of hearing & came without hearing aids. clerks were very helpful & respectful. Nurse found a hearing devise aid which made the visit easy for communication. I had the best blood draw with no hesitation & no pain. First time I left healthcare clinic satisfied with treatment advice ... like being hopeful of real health care & receiving respect from everyone.

The best Doctor in all of Legacy. You should feel lucky to have her. I wish she was staying at Good Sam and not being moved to Raleigh Hills. Good Sam is so much easier to get to when a person has to use medical transport.But I will follow her to to the Raleigh Hills office because she is the best.
