Dr. Foster is great. He’s very thorough and takes the time to get to the heart of the situation, and recommends treatment that fits the diagnosis. He always has a plan B and takes time to explain why he is treating the way he is. Definitely not an over prescriber or someone who makes rash diagnosis, he listens and finds the right solution. Great bedside manner and very funny, especially for a former East Coaster Like me - I appreciate his frankness . He has a way of putting you at ease and helping you see a silver lining. Great doc, and my husband even sees him, and usually hates every doctor.

I have always been very happy with my experience with Dr. Foster. And, today, his staff went above and beyond to fit my husband in (even though he is a new patient). Great staff all around.

I can say that Dr. Mark Foster is by far the best Dr. around. I currently live in Carlsbad and drive 1 hour because he is truly worth the drive. He returns calls, emails within a very short time. He is very knowledgeable and listens to the patient in depth. I could not say much more amazing things about him. I would recommend him as a dr to my family and friends.

Never met a doctor more self absorbed then Mark Foster. So busy typing into his computer that he does not hear or want to hear anything you have to say. Disorganized, did not even remember why I was there (was for a follow up that he asked me to make), had little information on my issue/prognosis, and was very rude. I left his practice and would only recommend him to someone who does not really care about their health.

Dr. Foster spends time with my husband and I. He assiduous to ascertain a treatment plan. He is a positive person and rather jovial at times. The front desk person (man) is often curt and dismissive to patients.

Dr. Foster is very thorough and considerate. He does not rush, but truly listens; although he makes sure that you know that he is the doctor and you are the patient. He does not push medications, but instead encourages the patient to work towards getting the body strong to aid in the healing process. Medications become a crutch, but exercise and healthy living have better long term results.
