Simply the best Professional Caring and always, always with me in mind first I've been a very fortunate patient if Dr. Foster for well over ten years. I wish all my doctors were like this great man
in Milton, GA 30004 |
My ATL GA eye docs said there is nothing wrong. Just keep using these RX eye drops. My dentist said there's nothing wrong with soft tissues in your mouth. I flew to BOS to see Dr. Stephen Foster, who diagnosed a rare, one in a million autoimmune condition that affects all mucous membrane tissues. It can lead to blindness, SEVERE discomfort and death. It is incurable. However, I am now in remission for three years without drug. I cannot say enough positive about this remarkable doctor.
