My daughter has been going to this doctor for 12 years. Most of the time it has been quite satisfying outside of the loud, obnoxious and chaotic office and atmosphere, the staff "used" to be friendly, helpful, and professional. Lately I have noticed it has gone downhill..BIG time. What a free-for-all
If you need to be seen because of an urgent problem, forget it. They can't and/or won't and if they tell you his assistant will call, she doesn't. We wound up in the emergency room who told us after 7 hrs to go to her doctor and then issued a caveat "never mind", he won't bother. they were right...He didn't!
He has completely changed his tune as to the removal, he was insulting, rude and petulant insisting "he did nothing wrong" but that pooling of blood and the inability to walk, have her monthly cycle, was "normal". Seriously, people??? He was so unprofessional, we'd have done better to go to the corner veternarian because he gave her NO time, no professionalism and nothing but attitude. I am greatly disappointed!
No, we will not ever recommend him again and we have sent many to him in the past..I will never go to him again and neither will my daughter or her daughters...If we wanted to be treated like jerks, heck we'd go to our local politicians' offices.
Don't ever let him or another gyno tell you the essure is safe and w/o symptoms or problems. Research it yourself. There are women who have lost their lives b/c of their lies and deceit and this doctor appears to be complicit. Done

Dr. Folkestad is one of the best doctors I have ever seen. I respect him so much that I have sent multiple people to him, Dr. Folkestad is very knowledgeable, always gives you all the facts, and never tries to force you into a procedure or test you are not comfortable with. His nurse Angie is one of the most wonderful people I have ever met, she always made me and everyone I have referred feel very comfortable, and his nurse practicioners are amoung the best out there. No one at this office ever makes you feel like your questions are dumb. I cannot say enough about this doctor, and his staff!! Both of my children were born around the holidays, and with each, Dr. Folkestad made sure he was ALWAYS available at a moments notice to deliver my children. He makes every patient feel like they are his favorite, and always remembers to aks about kids when I go for yearly visits. For those of you who complain that you have to wait to see him.. its well worth the wait. You are always offered to see his nurse practicioner, and the staff always tries to accomodate with rescheduling if need be. This doctor and his staff are the only ones I will ever see, refer out period. You want the best.. well this doctor and his staff are just that!

Dr. Folkestad (when able to see him instead of his nurse practioner) was always cordial and reassuring. He is very positive and puts you at ease. The office and the way it it run however, has much to be desired. After driving from Buckeye some 45 min and then waiting 45 min to an hour in the waiting room, I felt very neglected. One visit I gave a urine sample and had nowhere to put it as the cabinet was full. The next time I was forgotten in an exam room for 45 minutes. Then I was not even asked to leave a urine sample. At 32 weeks I finally had enough of feeling like I was getting questionable care and switched OB's.

Dr Folkstead is a great docotor. He has been my doctor for over 10 years. He delevried my sisters last 2 children as well as my best friends last child. The wait is well worth it if you want soemone who really takes the time for your medical care. i would reccemend him to anyone.

I had one of the First Babies born at Arrowhead and with the one and only Dr. Flokstad that was 17 years ago he was wonderfull then and after 2 more childern I wont see anyone since. Now my Daughter is, too. He is very caring and will take the time that you need. I have never felt rushed so the wait has always been worth it.

I read a post before seeing Dr. Folkstad for the first time, that said he is often running behind but he is awesome. My first visit confirmed both. He may have run behind on appt. time, but what Dr. doesn't? Besides, he was delivering babies. I will say, he is the best Ob/Gyn I have ever had. He walked me through my first pregnancy will all my lists of questions (which probably made him late for his next patient) and he answered every question I ever had and then some. He put me at ease when no one else could and delivered my daughter perfectly even though she was not doing well through my contractions. Even if you don't like to wait, he is well worth it. I will not see anyone else as long as we live in AZ!! Staff is also very attentive and friendly.

Dr. Folkestad has been my gynecologist for the past 9 years and he is definitely great at what he does. However, for the past three years I have had to see his nurse practitioner because he has been overbooked. Trust me I know delivering babies is probably more important than my yearly routine exams but I just feel that maybe he should take on less patients so that he can give all his patients the service they need. I just look at it like this: my insurance premium and co pay is based off me seeing Dr Folkestad, the actual doctor, not his nurse practitioner. However, she is amazing and very thorough also but doesn't necessarily have the same expertise as Folkestad.

I have had all 4 of my grandchildren by the honestly most caring, genuine, awesome ob/gyn...if I lived in Phx area he would have delivered all 6 of mine! He has never been anything but the best...as busy as he is he answers all questions and makes your delivery fun and when its scary he will be the first to reassure you...Angie, need I say more...She is an Angel she keeps him on track (when she can) and continues the awesome care, never worries or questions leave that office or delivery room, they make you feel like family and you know you are getting the best care...I also work with mom's in scary situations and have referred and will continue to refer patients as a professional...I have NEVER got one complaint and other mom's come and thank me for recommending him! Love you Dr & Angie

Dr. Folkestad & Angie are a dynamic duo! I was given his name from a friend & so GRATEFUL that I went. My previous OB handled my miscarriage through her nurse, never talked TO me, just AT me, & made me wait a WEEK to get the DNC I needed. Horrific experience. So, when we wanted to get pregnant again - I knew I needed a NEW Dr. Well, not only did I find a new Dr. - I found the BEST Dr. He is so positive, informative, & understanding. I am just entering pregnancy #3 & am thrilled that all of my kids will be delivered by Dr. Folkestad. He is a blessing!!!Deanna C. - Peoria, AZ

My name is Cindi and I was seeing Dr. Sun who is a great Dr. for most of my pregnancy, however it seemed that towards the end of my pregnancy my questions were not being answered and my needs where not being met. Dr. Folkestad was recommended to me by one our friends and even though I was already 37 weeks he took me in as his patient. All I have to say is that I made the best decision of my life switching to him. He delivered my son and the staff at the hospital was great! If you truly want to be treated like royalty Dr. Folkestad is the Dr. and Arrowhead is the place to have your unborn child. I highly recommend him to any one!!:)

He delivered my Niece and has been my oldest sister's Dr. for about ten or eleven years now. I started going to him when my PCOS landed me in the hospital and was told about him by my physician. Definitely the best doctor I could ask for. He is caring, and tries to personalize with his patients, and helps them as much as he can if they need it. I would recommend him to every woman I know.

All I can say is that I have had the best experience with Dr. Folkestad. He really treats everybody as if your his favorite patient. You just know you and/or your unborn child is in the best of hands. I also travel about 40 to 50 miles just to keep him as my Doctor. When I was delivering I refused to have another doctor deliver me, my unborn child and I had an understanding that she would wait until we drove 50 miles to the hospital LOL jk. Really he is the best and so is his staff.

Dr. Folkestad delivered both my girls and I am pregnant with my third and cannot wait to have him help with my pregnancy. I was in a severe car accident and told I could not have children and am very high risk. I remember being so scared and nervous. We traveled over 45 miles just to keep him as our baby doctor when we moved. My husband and I joked about how Dr. Folkestad was more excited and positive than we were about having the babies! He put me at ease answered all of my questions on a personal level and I am so thankful he delivered my children. I would highly recommend Dr. Folkestad to any woman, or couple starting or adding to their family.

Dr Folkestad and his staff are extremely caring and knowledgeable. Dr Folkestad is energetic and compassionate. He takes the time to answer all of your questions and never pushes you to do things his way. He delivered my son and will be delivering my next son next month. He does tend to run behind schedule as far as appointments but this is because he lives close to the hospital and handles many if not most of the emergencies for other doctors patients or non patients. To me this is admirable, so i do not mind waiting. 5 STAR SERVICE!

I have been seeing Dr Folkestad for almost 10 years now. I would never go anywhere else. He is so awesome in every way. He delivered both of my children and my nieces and nephew. Not only is he a great doctor he is a great person and if you have something on your mind he will take the time to make sure you are ok before leaving your room. If you want to be treated like a queen this is the doctor to see. I thank Dr Folkestad for always being the great person and doctor he is and taking such great care of me and my family members.

Dr Folkestad and his Associates are phenomenal OB-GYNs associated with Arrowhead Medical Center. He also delivers at Thunderbird Samaritan. This entire practice has knowledgeable doctors that make you feel completely comfortable with everything from dealing with infertility, pregnancy, various tests, and all that comes with delivery. The office is very accommodating to get you in though you occasionally have to wait a bit at the office. I felt the extra wait during those delivery calls was well worth it because I knew my time was coming and I felt very comfortable with Dr Folkestad. I would recommend this practice to anyone. They are very positive and supportive and answered any "silly" question I may have had. Thanks to them, I have a healthy baby boy!

PROS: Knowledgeable partners that put you at ease as well.

I love this doctor! Folkestad treats every patience with kindness and took great care of me and my baby. I ended up having to have a cesarian and he did a great job! you can't see a scar anywhere! It was a very stress free environment.
