      I have personally worked with Dr. Foster as an Operating Room Nurse and Director of the Surgery Dept. I know for a fact that his rapport with staff and especially with patients is exemplary - as well as kind, empathetic and genuine. His skills as a surgeon are second to none. He is an excellent teacher which is why he is one of the finest in his field today. I know this for a fact. Fact is: I will be scheduling a general surgery consult soon - I guarantee you; it will be with Dr. Foster.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
