I was fortunate to have Dr. Foster take care of my type 1 diabetes diagnosis for years as a child. He is compassionate, loves his profession, and the children in his practice. He now takes care of my daughter's hypothyroidism and growth hormone deficiency. I'm elated that he's in my family's corner, again! I highly recommend Dr. Foster to anyone!

Dr. Foster is wonderful. We really like him. Office staff is not so much. I am in search of another doctor because of the staff. The 2 times I have tried to call the office in regards to my daughters medication, I cannot get anyone to return my phone call. This last time which was Thursday (today is now Tuesday) I have had to call back again. I tried a live person only to get thrown back to the nurses voicemail again. This is one irritated mother concerned about my child.
