Ratings for Dr. Robert A. Foote
Dr. Foote really needs to try harder to relate to patients and communicate - he's probably the worst doctor I've ever gone to for that. After 3 appointments and multiple tests for spinal pain, I finally got a referral to a neurosurgeon and maybe I'll start to get somewhere. I liked his assistant. I can't tell about his overall knowledge - he might be the most brilliant M.D. in Arizona, but he doesn't talk and never smiles.
I took my husband to this doctor after he had fallen 25 feet off of a ladder. He suffered a concusion and had other nuerological issues that he was suffering from. He had continued headaches and muscle tremers. He could not sit up with out getting dizzy and throwing up. The doctor walked in the room and talked with me. I told him his symtems and he said he felt there was no reason for him not to go back to work and walked out of the room. He never touched my husband. His report stated that he did a full exam which he did not. He was in the room for no more than 5 minutes.
I was refered to Dr Foote for chronic headaches. His exam was a basic neuro. eval. (I know since it is the one I was taught to do as an advanced practice nurse). After which he told me I was fine! I asked if he had reviewed my scans and at that time he took them out of the folder and briefly looked at them. He got up to leave, never questionned me on the history of my headaches. 2 months later another doctor was able to anser my questions. Dr Foote was for me a loss of time and money.
20.00 was my copay but I actually asked for my money back this doctor was so incompetent. The funny thing is the office staff did not even seem surprised when I did, they actually looked at each other like they new. He did not listen to one thing I said, he acted like he hated being there and hated that I was wasting his time. If I were you, I would not waste one minute of my time with this Doctor. I do not think he should be allowed to practice>
