Dr. Foster is kind, compassionate, and very understanding! I saw her today for a heel spur that has been plaguing me for months now. She explained to me all of my options, and was very gentle in performing the procedure I needed for the condition. I do recommend her to all seeking a podiatrist in the Chicagoland area. She was excellent, and I will be back with any podiatry needs I may have in the future!

My first visit with Dr. Foster was very refreshing. Great bedside manner, good listener. She is very thorough in her delivery and very patient. She makes your first visit very comfortable. She isn't just concerned with your foot but you as a whole person.

Dr. Foster treated my father for gout. When you walk in the office is very clean and the staff was very cheerful and friendly as they greeted us. They gave me paperwork to fill out and thoroughly explained everything as far as insurance cost, in office costs, etc and answered all questions I had. Once I met Dr. Foster I knew we were in the right place. Very attentive, professional, and down to earth. She took the time to explain everything to us and followed up with him.

I would NEVER recommend anyone to go here! The office does not use your insurance the way it is meant to be used. If your deductible is not met you are charged for everything, not the % you are suppose to pay. You are not informed of this policy until after services have been rendered. When I questioned them about this I was told this is done because they are allowed to do it. AWFUL BUSINESS!! I have insurance for a reason..TO BE CHARGED LESS! They are technically taking your money! DON'T GO!!!

I've only went to one visit. It was a horrible experience. I went for suspicion of a fungus but was told I had to come back for testing because I had on nail polish. Why wasn't I told this when setting up the appointment? Why wouldn't you have polish remover in your office? My time and money are valuable too. I did not return.
