What People Say About Dr. Richard Foster, MD

SUCH AN ARROGANT DOCTOR!!! DO NOT SELECT HIM !!! He does not listen to the patient and also accused my mom of lying about her on going diagnosis with ulcerative colitis. He is very rude and has made very rude comments. DO NOT PICK HIM IN THIS OFFICE! He's not the least bit friendly and has made us very uncomfortable. Foster does not treat his patients with respect.

I would give 0 stars if able to. He is very arrogant and not a good listener. Accused me of lying about diagnoses from previous Drs. and questioned lab results that were done in years past at HRH. I ended up taking over-the-counter meds that made my condition worse, which I called back and questioned and he upped the dose. Went back to my original Dr. and was diagnosed correctly and started doing the complete opposite of what Dr. Foster said to do and was back to normal within a week.
