Patient Comments (3)
While Dr. Foster is a very nice person, my injury is no better now than what it was before he did my surgery almost 10 years ago. I can barely stand the pain at times from sometimes doing nothing more than walking. It is disappointing as I thought I had one of the best Orthopedic Surgeons in Massachusetts.

I highly recommend Dr. Foster if you need shoulder surgery. His expertise, patience, and skill can't be beat. He treats patients with respect and explains treatment plans thoroughly.
in Wellesley, ma |
Dr. Foster had the best bedside manner of any orthopedist I have seen. Gave ample time for questions, provided a very thorough examination and was not in the least defensive or dissuasive that I get another opinion. I ended up having surgery with him and have no regrets. Even though he is now the Chairman of the department, he is easy to communicate with if needed.
