Caring and compassionate! Not only is Dr. Fost extremely knowledgeable, he is kind and he really listens to me. The office staff is as kind as he is. Dr. Fost gave me the attention and concern that I needed. He is well respected by my friends and I was referred to him by another one of his patients.
