My baby toe had a callous that would not respond to over-the-counter remedies. Dr. Foster solved the problem in minutes. After 8 months of suffering, I finally walked out of his office pain free. I regret that I waited so long. Thank you, Dr Foster!

Dr. Foster solved my foot issue with one visit. I left with no pain from my baby toe which had been giving me the "blues" for about 8 months. This was worth the trip!
