Patient Comments (2)
in Carson City |
Dr Foster is a hands on caring doctor. He was my doctor when I had both lungs affected by chemotherapy. He was on top of it and pro-active. I knew I was in good hands.
in Carson City, NV. |
He has been my physician for around 10+ years now. In those years he has always been kind, considerate, very knowledgeable of my health issues, he's never. Not eces Dr acted stuffy nor rushed me with the office visiting. LAST YEAR he saved my life and then they care flighted to a hospital with room to care for me. Dr.Foster has always been great with me & that's more then I can say for many Doctors in our area. Yes, I do highly recommend Dr.Foster. The FRONT office staff could be friendlier.
