Dr. Foster is absolutely amazing! My husband just had a tonsillectomy and was beyond nervous to get this done at his age! Not only did Dr. Foster make him feel comfortable about getting the surgery......he answered ALL of our questions without hesitation! Needless to say....the surgery was an absolute success and the recovery was way faster than expected due to Dr. Foster's experience! Today my husband is a new man because of him!!!

Great doctor. I had a cyst in my mouth which was very uncomfortable and he was able to remove it right in the office with no pain. I would recommend him to friends and family.

Worse dr I've ever come across in Florida. I went for a sleep apnea condition, he comes into the room for just a couple of minutes, doesn't listen to the symptoms I'm trying to describe and when he wants to perform an endoscopy, I ask about the cost. They refuse to give me even a ballpark price, they say I shouldn't worry about it as its probably covered by my insurance, and trick me into doing it on the spot. Result: he claims I have no sleep apnea and a month later I receive a bill for $500.

Great experience!

He was in and out in about 5 minutes, he didn't even listen to me. I have been having ear and throat problems for 3 months and he didn't even look in my ears. He threw a scope down my throat and said everything was fine and left the room! He couldn't answer any of my questions, he was the WORSE doctor I have ever seen and I do not recommend him, I had no idea as I was referred to him through my primary physician. TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE!
