I received exceptional, professional, compassionate service and care. Ms. Anya answered all my questions on the phone and an email. Ms. Anya and the nurses exceeded my expectations. Dr. Foster went beyond the call of duty during my procedure because my prep wasn’t as good as it should have been. It was an answer to prayer and I am thankful to GOD. On a scale of 1 to 10. My visit was a 25!!! Everything and everyone exceeded my expectation. Thank you so much! I asked the kind nurse who just called to express my gratitude to Dr. Foster.

Went to see Dr. Foster for a colon screen, I had not been to a doctor in over 26 years. She was GREAT! She was very patient with me and answered all of my questions. She also gave me a recommendation for a General Practitioner for a check up. Her staff has excellent follow up skills and have always seemed very pleasant. Great customer service.

My wife was a patient. Her experience was very unpleasant in that the doctor accused her of not following directions re prep. my wife is old enough to be her mother and a well educated woman who is meticulous about following doctors orders. Her condescending attitude and acerbic demeanor is why we decided to change physicians.

BEWARE!!! I struggled whether to write a review; however, today the nightmare continues. I went to Dr. Foster for stomach issues. Her bedside manners were a little dry, but ok. I had a procedure and told my position. Of course paid in full. She did not bother to call me; I received a call from the office manager that it wasn’t cancer and keep taking over counter medication. No details...just that. Scheduled for 2nd procedure that was/is 100% covered by insurance. I was called and told I had not met my deductible and I needed to paid $800. Ok, did not sound correct because I knew it was a covered maintenance procedure. I called the insurance company and was told it was submitted as medical instead of screening; their billing department needed to resubmit as such. I called back and requested the change, which they refused. They could not explain why other than I came in complaining about my stomach....isn’t that the reason anyone goes to a gastroenterologist?!?! But, you want to Bill a c

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.
