    How was your appointment with Dr. Folb?

    Oct 07, 2022
    I have only seen Dr. Folb once, a referral by my gynecologist due to the development of osteoporosis. She was very thorough and easy to talk to and suggested treatment, which I started. Now she has left Houston. I really, really liked her! Now I am looking for another endocrinologist!
