Patient Comments (2)

Getting an appointment with the Spartanburg answering system has been a hassle. However, it is worth the effort. Dr. Foster was warm, caring and obviously knows his medicine. He found a paper on the rare issue I had. Got informed and took care of it. I live in Greenville but drove to Spartanburg...more

I had an appointment with Dr. Foster today. I found the bedside manner of the ladies at the desk, the nurses, and Dr. Foster to be top notch. All were very friendly and answered all my questions. I would go back to him in a heartbeat. I have total confidence in him and his staff.
