Patient Comments (2)

Dr. Foster took the time to sit down and explain things. Not once did the conversation or explanation feel rushed. While my surgery was rescheduled twice it was in my best interest. Great bedside manner although firm with his words. His nurse Charlene was EXCELLENT ! Great communicator as well

Unprepared, unsympathetic attitude, ridiculously long wait to be seen.
