Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I was a new patient and she spent time listening to me and helping with my problems. She was very kind and attentive to my needs. Nice to have a doctor that takes time with you and not just walk in and walk out.

She has poor bedside manner and doesn't listen. She will prescribe you expensive new medications for problems that you aren't requesting help with. Capri medical group was a great place in 2015 but now they are only interested in money.

We've been using Prima and Carl Fosters office since they opened almost a decade ago. If you can, schedule your appointments in advance, as their office can be quite busy from walk-ins. The friendliness of both Carl and Prima make visits to their office enjoyable.

I was extremely disappointed with the services of Dr Prima Foster or the lack of service. I left their office without being seen by her because she refuse to see me without even examining my situation. I gave their office a second chance when they didn't deserve one. In a previous visit I had blood work done and it took about 2 months for them to finally call me back. They didn't even know what they were talking about. I was advised that my results were good when in fact it was the opposite
