Dr. Foerster is one of the most capable, caring and competent doctor's who has ever treated me. He did surgery on my left hand and has faithfully followed up with my care. I would recommend him to anyone interested in having hand surgery. In addition, his office nurse, Maureen is incredibly compassionate and caring. The entire atmosphere of the office is very welcoming and comfortable.

Was recommended by numerous doctors including anesthesiologists - needed surgery on both hands for carpal tunnel and had been to a couple of well know hand doctors that would inject, inject and inject! Finally I made appt with Dr. Foerster and week later surgery and six weeks later the other hand. So so pleased. Healed perfect. Then 4 months later fell and broke my wrist. Had surgery with numerous screws needed and as good as new! I love him and his nurse- they really care! Highly recommend

Dr. Foerster treated my 8 month old daughter when she broke her forearm. I was very upset and scared, but Dr. Foerster put me at ease with his calm and caring demeanor. He clearly explained her injury and laid out all our options (and his nurse was lovely as well). I am so happy with the care we received and would refer my friends and family to him.

I have being in his office for 10 months and it's appointment after another with no solution. I went for a second opinion, Dr's told me it was very bad him treating me with cortisone injections and not having another solution for me all this time. Plus the nurse it's REALLY rude. Doesn't know how to treat patients at all

Had carpal tunnel repair, both hands, several trigger finger surgeries. Dr Foerster is very nice, explains problem so that I can understand it and tries alternatives to surgery before surgery is scheduled.
