We try very hard to provide professional and friendly service to all of our patients. As you may expect we are not going to be able to please everyone.

in Henderson, NV |
This guy is an absolute arrogant jerk to be nice! He talks to patients like they are stupid and is insulting. My daughter wanted to get an IUD and I asked him to do a pap smear too. He told me he cannot do one due to my insurance. I said "...back in my day they did them routinely." His response was, "That was a lot of days ago". How incredibly unprofessional!! Not to mention he has a creepy vibe that even my daughter stated made her feel uncomfortable. No wonder he was so quick to get in to see

I drive 30 minutes just to see this doctor for appointments. He performed an emergency c section on me in 2014 and the whole thing was extremely fast and pleasant because he made me feel beyond comfortable. He always answers any of my questions and is very helpful in providing information. I refuse to see anyone else for my obgyn needs.
in Henderson, NV |
He is so considerate and very educated. I had a terrible first experience and I went to him for a second opinion and he made me completely forget about my bad experience. He isn't one to just immediately prescribe medicine which is awesome.

THE worst practice I've ever been to in my life. Dr. Foster is NOT the doc you want if you are pregnant, especially if it is your first pregnancy. This office is CLEARLY geared towards cosmetic procedures (laser old face removals and re-vag-unations) and NOT prenatal care! Every visit I would leave unsure and more nervous , not knowing a single detail about my child. No length or weight estimates. No reassurance everything was healthy. By the time I finally went into labor I didn't see him till
in Henderson, NV |
7 weeks pregnant/spotting. Went to urgent care had ultrasound, heard babies heartbeat, took blood. The UC Doc wanted me to go to Dr. Foster in 2 days to draw more blood to make sure hormone levels increasing. Doctor Foster refuses to draw blood or do an ultrasound saying that I wouldn't be able to hear a heartbeat anyway? I heard the heartbeat at urgent care? He said drawing blood is pointless. If he drew my blood I would be able to stay positive or prepare. Not a good doctor. ????
Las Vegas, NV |
Dr. Foster was condescending and dismissive of my daughter. She was sent to him because her primary care physician was very concerned about test results. She experiences a lot of pain and there are multiple issues. His response was to give a birth control prescription and tell her (while laughing) nothing else to do. I would not recommend him.

He's ok but he always leaves me in doubt. I don't know anything unless i ask him.
