I came to this doctor for help with what I thought was a first time UTI. He proceeds to check my urethra and one minute in, he dilates my urethra! WITHOUT MY CONSENT!!!! As a result, I had chronic bladder irritation and sensitivities and bladder pain. The nurse was so insensitive as she insisted I had IC. I suffered for 3 years. Upon going to other doctors i learned this procedure traumatized my urethra. Tell this doctor not to perform any procedures w/o your consent!!!! Praise God I'm better

Dr. Foster is, from my personal experience, the best urologist in the Southeast. He fixed my urological problem that three other urologists in Atlanta and Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville couldn't. He also makes the patient/doctor relationship a most wonderful experience.

Dr. Foster is a blessing for my mom. After going to 2-3 different doctors, with no results, Dr. Foster has really helped her. Very knowledgeable, thorough, listens to the patient. So thankful we found him. And the bow tie is awesome too !!

Appointments have been cancelled several times and not rescheduled timely. When concerns were raised to the people scheduling the appointment and they had no sympathy or sense of understanding the need to reschedule timely. Overall experience with the doctor was great, however experience with the scheduling staff lead me to seek an alternative doctor.
