IMO you are risking your life going to this doctor!! After a sleep study it took 5 months and 6 calls from my ins co to get him to share that I needed another test to do prescription. The second test indicated I had a severe medical issue. This time it took 2 weeks and another call from my ins co to convince this 'doctor' to send out his prescription for equipment. All in all he allowed me to suffer 6 months longer with a serious, life threatening medical condition and he couldn't care less.

Dr. Foster took the time to talk to me and get to the root of the problem. He was kind enough to see me quickly knowing the difficulties I was having. When I thanked him, he said "Id rather see you here now than see you in the emergency room later." Despite being an extremely bus
