Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Excellence: office staff and Dr. Joel Foster, DPM
Dr. Foster demonstrated expertise and compassion during my recent visit. He’s thorough in his explanations, which set my mind at ease. My internist referred me to Dr. Foster, and I strongly recommend him for anyone needing a podiatrist. His office staff are welcoming and professional. If I were to affix a numerical value to Dr. Foster and staff, I would, without hesitation, grant them 5 *****.

Dr. Foster saved me a life time of pain by fixing my foot after another doctor, didn't fix it correctly the first time. He was patient, spent time with me, explained all options, and tried many different ways to try to fix my foot without surgery first. Dr. Foster does not do any unnecessary procedures and is always willing to listen and explain any concerns or questions I had. I highly recommend him to anyone having any foot concerns! He is my hero! ?

Dr Foster helped my mother after another dr butchered her. He was thorough in fixing the issues she had with her toes. His staff and he were very kind and gentle with my mother. We felt comfortable there.
