    Excellent physician and staff. Thanks to him my hands and wrist issues are better. I still have issues, but I think with more time it will get better.

    Due to the nature of my hand problem, I can't say the two procedures have been painless. However, Dr Foster has my complete trust and confidence - a rare thing in the medical field these days. Plus dealing with his staff HAS been painless.

    Wonderful doctor. He fixed my ruined hand and wrist years ago, and it still works great. And he helped me recently with a trivial, but aggravating, problem. Best part was he fixed it right then and there on the first visit, and didn't make me schedule a procedure, go for tests, etc., or any of the other many ways doctors can milk you for appointments, copays, and additional office visits on your insurance.
