Dr. Foster's consultation, exam, and follow-up were excellent. I apologize for being anxious and somewhat out-spoken before the exam. I highly recommend Dr. Foster for gastroenterology.

Doctor Foster and her staff are awesome. They are knowledgeable, professional, caring. Perfect Synergy among her staff. I was treated to smiles and positive comments that allayed all my apprehensions about the procedure. The procedures, completed on separate days, were done on time and completed fast. It was amazing! I had no problems, no complications, no pain....! She talked with me after the procedure and gave me a color printout of what she saw. The office called to check on me. Loved it!!!

The bedside manner that Dr. Foster offers is not seen much today. I was anxious and embarrassed about a GI procedure I needed and was ready to walk out the surgery center, held up her staff who were trying to get me setup. She came to me and personally reassured me I would be ok and I completed my procedure successfully. Her staff is also polite and compassionate. All of my experiences thus far with Dr. Foster and Dekalb GI Associates have been Excellent!

Dr. Foster and her staff are very professional. Their schedule is very flexible for working adults and her staff in very professional. During my initial visit for my first colonoscopy, she noticed how bloated by abdomen was and provided me with a more in depth examination. Afterwards, she diagnosed me with H-Pylori. A condition I knew nothing about and treated me over a period of 4 months until it was completely out of my system. She added years to my life. Thank God for Dr. Foster !!

My name is Carl Weaver. Dr. Foster is the greatest Gastrologist that I have every encountered. She discovered that I had some issues, but she knew how to solve it. Her staff is very well trained and knowledgeable of their positions and profession. I have been discharged, but I will never forget my experience with Dr. Foster and her staff. Thanks!

My appointment was easily scheduled. I found the office to be very friendly. I found Dr. Foster to be a lovely young woman with a kind smile and general interest in me. She asked questions so that she might be familiar with my condition, and explained my procedure. My colonoscopy went well, and as smooth as could be. Dr. Foster met with me following the procedure and told me all was well. She has a lovely personality and is knowledgeable about her work. I would recommend her to anyone.

Dr. Foster is very professional and knowledgeable with great bedside manners. Over a year I've been to a few gastrologists with my health concerns. They said ibs, acid reflux and everything else other than testing to find out the real issue. Very first visit she was on it. No guessing games. Was given diagnosis with evidence and have a treatment plan. I'm feeling better already. Feel as if I'm in a caring and capable doctor's care. Thank you Dr. Foster.

I was totally pleased with Dr. Foster' and her treatment for my health concerns. Dr. Foster "literally" dissected each concern I had and addressed them one by one. She found that I had an infection within my stomach and her office staff even assisted me with giving me sample medication for the condition. I was so pleased and shocked on how "human" she was that I am still in awe and I was referred to her months ago. Thanks Dr. Foster - for caring about your patients!

This Dr. is Awesome she really takes her time and hears you out. She gives you complete patient care and her staff is just as Great. She gives you a health plan right on the spot to take care of yourself. Such a Great experience especially when it's a GI visit best bedside manner EVER! I will tell everyone about her. She really came through for me and glad she did because I was going to wait another year or so and because she suggested that I do it now, she remove a polyp that need to go!

From the start of making my appointment over the phone to my leaving the office after my initial visit, my experience was great. Both nurses were helpful and quite pleasant. CeCe, one of the nurses was very helpful in answering all the questions that I had and in scheduling my test date. I felt very comfortable with Dr. Foster. She was very informative and was very he!pfuli in easing my anxieties regarding having the colonoscopy. I would definitely recommend Dr.Foster.
