I came all the way from South Carolina to see Dr Foye! I have never met a more compassionate knowledgeable Doctor Who was willing to spend time to explain what my condition was. He found a spur on the end of my tail bone that the Mayo Clinic did not even see! He gave me a nerve ablation which eliminated the pain on the tip of my tailbone. Thank you Dr Foye

I flew my 17 year old daughter almost 700 miles, from SC to NJ, to seek treatment from Dr. Patrick Foye. She had already seen about 8 different physicians locally, 4 different chiropractors, physical therapists, massage therapists, even an acupuncturist and no one could help with or even diagnose the source of her intense pain. Dr. Foye was the first and only physician that spent a lot of time listening to her and truly understood how debilitating her pain was. He answered both of our questions and never made us feel rushed or unimportant like so many other physicians have. The special X-ray technique and detailed MRI instructions were truly amazing. The difference in the quality of images produced was unreal and was crucial in diagnosing the actual problem. Dr. Foye saw a clear explanation for her pain on MRI images that a local radiologist and her regular physician missed. After years of being told she just had to learn to live with the pain, she had begun to feel that life wasn’t worth living. Dr. Foye has changed our lives and given us hope that one day soon she will be in less pain. He is a phenomenal physician with vast knowledge about coccyx pain and a compassionate, patient demeanor that inspires confidence in his very detailed treatment plan. I have read his book twice and often look at his website for advice and encouragement. He also makes himself readily available to his patients via email and telehealth visits. I would recommend anyone with coccyx pain to see him. Thank you Dr. Foye for giving us answers and hope for a better future!

Dr Foye diagnosed my torn ligament off my coccyx and I could not sit without pain because my tailbone was not curling under me when I sit. He is very patient and takes his time, showing you the x-rays and explaining what the problem is. After 7 years of dealing with the pain, I decided to have a nerve ablation. It was very successful and I can sit now for hours at a time without pain for the first time in 7 years! God Bless Dr. Foye. I have my life back!

Like most of Dr. Foye's patients, I found myself in his office after seeing multiple doctors and almost not believing that anyone would understand the magnitude of my horrific pain, nor found the source of it. Dr. Foye was the very first to listen to me and to examine me. Looking at the images brought by me of MRIs he immediately noticed both: abnormalities in my coccyx and lack of image of coccyx on others, that were not noticed by 17 other, highly respected specialists. Pain of subluxated coccyx is so intense that thoughts of suicide are not rare between suffering patients. His kindness, not rushing during detailed interview put me at ease and helped me adequately answer his questions. He is not eager to send his patients for surgery. Some are lucky to benefit just from his procedures that he performs almost painlessly, even the most feared one--nerve ablation. I wish there were more Dr. Foyes available to treat suffering people. He is a phenomenal physician, scientist and a human.

I went to him for a long-standing tailbone pain when sitting. Apparently, he thought I was lying about my pain, because when he sent me a copy of his medical report, he had lied about me, apparently to put several things in my medical record to make me look like a liar.

Dr Foye did some spinal injections. They Didn’t help. Fast forward to a year later. I had my entire tailbone removed. The doctor said my tailbone was dislocated and broken in another area. Wondering how all of these doctors missed this on the 4 MRI’ s I had and all of the sitting and standing xrays that were there.

He only offers steroid shot, but that is not a solution to all tailbone pain. If the shot does not work, he suggest surgery, which is a rather drastic approach. His shot did not help me, so I went to a better pain management doctor that recommended pelvic floor pt, which finally resolved my issue. I can’t imagine if I had listened to him and done an operating. It was irresponsible of him not to suggest less invasive solutions.

Unfortunately, Dr. Foye was a big disappointment to me. After reading his book and all the great reviews, I had such high hopes. I could readily overlook the disorganized and rude staff if I had some relief from my coccyx pain that I have been suffering from for over 5 years. I was so surprised at the condition of his office. It was so messy, out of date and dirty. He administered an injection and when it didn't work, he advised me that there was nothing more HE could do. He did suggest that I see a surgeon to have the coccyx removed. That is not an option that I want to pursue after hearing such horror stories. I was so surprised that he seemed to be "a one trick pony" for me. I really thought he could do more. Hopefully, others will have a better experience that I did. It seems that he is more interested in writing books and giving talks than actually dealing with patients.
