I have some long term problems with my feet. Dr. Foster took the time to explain the problem’s root causes, explain a short term care plan, and developed a long term care plan. He offered alternatives to be explored under different responses to his plans. He is a excellent doctor with the rare ability to effectively communicate in layman’s terms. I am looking forward to working with him.” – Gary McDole
