Dr. Foster and her team were very kind, compassionate and thorough in caring for me. My parents are patients of hers as well and recommended her. On first calling there seemed to be no available appointments. But once learned I was going through some pain and issues I was able to get an appointment and my issue was diagnosed and I am now being treated. Thank you

I was referred to Dr. Temipote Foster by Dr. Carmen Echols for a colon screening(that I avoided the prior year); however with more anxiety, the consultation was educational, and therapeutic. Dr. Foster listened to my concerns..and then some. :-) . The day of the colon screening, Dr. Foster asked if I had any questions, and reassured me that I was getting the golden service. Afterwards, I was pleased with my results, and how she delivered any findings with warmth. Also, no complications. I will definitely recommend Dr. Foster, and truly wish her and her office staff the best.

I was very satisfied with the services I received from Dr. Foster . I went it for Preventative appointment. Dr. Foster was very Professional but yet Friendly . Dr. Foster performed my colonoscopy before the procedure she explained what she would be doing and gave me an opportunity to ask her any questions I had. After the procedure was over she explained my results to me in away I could understand. I would refer De. Foster to everyone who is looking for a Gastroenterologist.

Excellent consultation and exceptional procedure. Dr Foster and her staff were kind polite and very professional. I was nervous due to this being my first Colonoscopy. The staffs attitude and professionalism put me at ease. This was the best experience I have had at a medical facility. I will highly recommend Dr Foster to my family and friends.

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 !!
