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.

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
