Weeks ago, I had made a 12 PM appointment for today. At 10:46 AM I received an email stating that my 12 PM appointment was rescheduled for 11 AM today (I didn’t reschedule). Then I get a second email saying that my appointment is being rescheduled AGAIN for tomorrow, and AGAIN without my knowledge (I didn’t reschedule either of these appointments). I had already told these people that I can’t come in tomorrow weeks ago when they tried to schedule me in. How coincidental the same appointment is still available weeks later and last minute? I even called to figure out what was going on and was told they don’t have access to scheduling and have no clue what’s going on. Then, I emailed them and the response I got back was someone trying to justify this unprofessional behavior by sayin they tried to call me. I NEVER GAVE THEM MY NUMBER SO WHO YA CALLING ?! To make matters worse, this is supposed to be for workers comp, so I can’t have this type of behavior interfering negatively.

I found Dr. Foster on Google, after my son attempted suicide, recently. The intake over the phone was much better than having an awkward onsite intake. I was able to cry on the phone with the young lady who scheduled us. She was also patient and kind. I was surprised at prepayment, but after I had my visit, I am glad it was prepaid. My son who can be resistant to most things and people, really connected with Dr. Foster. She was warm, friendly and assured my son that the office was a safe space and she would be his number one resource. My son, connected with her and spoke highly of her following the visit. She was direct in her inquiries and let my son lead the conversation. The office space was calming. The location was easy to get to. There was decent parking. I am happy we found her to guide us this journey of recovery and mental health wellness! Thank you Dr. Foster!!!

This doctor is so full of herself and doesn’t have an ounce of respect for others time. She also doesn’t seem to be as good of a doctor as she promotes herself to be. She seems like she has no idea what she’s doing and is constantly pulling out questionnaires when a good doctor could listen and pick things up. Horrible at refilling medications in a timely manner and more money hungry than actually compassionate for her patients. She once forgot to give us our prescription at our appointment and told us to book another appointment to get it. She refused to call it in. Just wanted another $350! She was a huge waste of our time. Thank goodness we switched to someone more professional and intelligent.

She thinks out of the box which we needed for my sons struggles. Easy to talk to, listens to the patient. Makes you feel included in your treatment plan. Great Dr.!
