Patient Comments (9)

I have been a patient of Dr Foss for 6 years. I find he is very much abreast of current methods for dealing with prostate cancer and I appreciate his direct, forthright discussions. I guess they are not for everyone. I am more than a little surprised about comments on his staff. Both of his assistants have always been extremely friendly to me.

I was referred to this Gentleman by our family doctor to have my youngest sons circumcision done. Our doctor said Mr. Foss was good but some people said he had poor bedside manner which in my opinion is a bunch of bs. I guarantee those people are the same type that think everyone is a winner and deserves a trophy and to top it off a place to cry because their presidential nominee wasn't elected. Everybody in Dr. Foss's office was very kind and professional. Dr. Foss himself was awesome!

Had a wonderful experience with Dr. Foss as my husband just had his vasectomy (on a Saturday!) which worked out great for our family schedule and his work schedule. Great doctor and a wonderful staff, especially the front desk receptionist. Thank you for a wonderful experience!

Worst bedside manner I've ever experienced. Been in the hospital for awhile now and this morning Foss called demanding I leave and go home against all other healthcare professionals opinions. Not a kind man, do not go to this doctor is you expect professionalism and timliness. Waited 3 days to have this emergency surgery, until it could fit into "his" schedule.

He is not a nice Doctor. Terrible bedside manner, and very rude to patients.

I got the feeling this Dr. is just trying to get as much money put away until he retires. The staff is very cold and unfriendly, exam room waiting times are very long and very cold. Did not feel at ease here if it hadn't been an emergency I would of went elsewhere.

Dr Foss is a very good doctor. He caught my prostate cancer very early even when the PSA only measured 1.0 I have been cancer free for several years thanks to Doctor Foss. He is very trustworthy.
in Kennewick, WA |
My friends highly recommended Dr. Foss and I was surprised to see so many negative reviews. I decided to stick with Dr. Foss and I'm very glad I did. I realize that people don't typically bother to write a review when everything was fine and pleasant, so I wanted to give my input. He and his staff were friendly and professional and I was in and out just as he described in my consult. It was easy and painless.

I have bad hip and joint pain due to psoriatic arthritis. Their front room is fine, but when they stick you in a cold exam room for 45 minutes to an hour, comfort isn't what comes to mind. I just sat (in pain) on a hard plastic seat in a freezing exam room. After 45 minutes of waiting, I left. Couldn't handle it anymore. Your exam rooms are NOT ok for people with disabilities.
