Dr. Foster always takes time with my mom, who has a very rare cancer as well. He explains things and has a gentle and encouraging spirit. We appreciate the care he gives as we navigate this illness.

My father has had the BEST experience of care with Foster. He has never met such a doctor that shows care about the patient as much as Foster does.
