What People Say About Dr. Kenneth Foster, MD
Reply
Dr. Foster made me feel cared for. Before surgery he stopped in to see me and answer questions. I didn't even know what questions to ask. When he reached out and touched my hand, his compassion showed through. I am thankful for the referral to him and his medical talent. Thank you, Dr. Foster, your heartfelt touch meant so much.
