I didn’t care for the way dr Foster spoke to me or his tone of voice. I came to him seeking help with tapering slowly off a phsycotropic medication prescribed by another dr. He demanded that I make a large dosage cut to the current med and start a antidepressant simultaneously, against my wishes. I explained to him I wasn’t comfortable making that large a dosage reduction nor with starting an a/d. He told me those were my opinions, take it or leave it. I canceled my next appt, never went back.
