My mom had been hospitalized with her oxygen falling to 80. She was in the hospital for 3 days & released w/o any oxygen even though she had been on oxygen her entire stay in the hospital. The nurses said the doctor did not order it. By the time I drove her home (20 minutes) she was already back down to 80. I called Dr. Foster who had been her pulmonary doctor for 4 years and had attended to her this past hospital stay. He ignored my three phone calls. My mom is now in hospice. Stay away!

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.

I feel so lucky to have found Dr. Steven Foster. His office was wonderful. He and his office gave me Hope that the patience with patients I remembered from the doctors growing up in New York still exists today. 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

Dr Foster has been my pulmonologist for many years. I have recommended him highly, and only have had favorable responses from my friends. He takes the necessary steps to ensure my breathing is endurable.
