“It was probably in 2006 when Dr. Foster used a foam mold to make my custom orthotics. During the office visit, I would have expected to have been standing on each of the forms to create those orthotic impressions. However, not the case–and in the past 11 years I have never doubted that he used the more accurate and beneficial method for that. I am still wearing that same set of orthotics, with a suede-like covering which is easily and regularly washed according to my activities–the covering has never loosened at all. This [orthotic] is by far cooler and more comfortable than the traditional hard plastic ones (which can also allow one’s foot to perspire, and slide on the slick surface).

Had I not found Dr. Foster and his technique, I would have had knee replacement and bunion surgery years ago. As long as I wear my orthotics, I now have no bunion, knee, or hip pain–or low back pain. If I have a day wearing dress shoes or shoes without my orthotic, I pay for it with intense bunion pain–and overall body pain that night and the next morning. These orthotics make a vast improvement in my energy and ‘how tall I feel.’ My husband had the same orthotics made and became free of plantar fasciitis pain and would never wear shoes without them.

I see so many people who seem to be walking in pain, pain which may just possibly be alleviated with proper foot, leg, and hip alignment. We so appreciate the pleasant and caring support staff [at Foot Care Specialist Joel D. Foster, DPM].”

Jean D. - MO

“My son and I have been patients for several years now and we couldn’t even imagine going somewhere else. The staff greets you with a smile and Dr. Foster takes his time with you and personally cares. My son plays sports and it is because of the treatment he receives that he can continue to play.”

Melanie H. - Lee's Summit, MO

“Dr. Foster has kept dad (93-year-old WWII vet) out of the hospital by correcting his hammertoes. They were becoming infected and causing cellulitis in the legs. Thank you, Dr. Foster!”

Robert W. - Lee Summit, MO

“My husband and I are both patients of Dr. Foster. We have been very pleased with the care and professionalism received. He is thorough, explains procedures, uses the least invasive treatment first and patiently addresses our questions. I have recommended him to many friends. He also has an excellent staff.”

Geneva L. - Kansas City, MO

“Brett and our family met Dr. Foster when Brett was 6-7 years old. Brett was born with a right foot deformity. His feet vary in shoe size by 7 sizes. With Dr. Foster’s precise skills + innovation, Brett has enjoyed a very fulfilling like wearing heelies, marching 4 years in band, ice skating, roller skating, and skateboarding. Thanks to Dr. Foster and his knowledge + expertise. Brett has not been held back in any way from participating in life. Dr. Foster is a very kind, caring and compassionate doctor. We are very grateful to have him as our doctor.”

“Dr. Foster never disappoints. On my first visit, he did something {offload padding) to my orthotics. It made my foot feel so much better. Today I came in (heel spur) and he did it again…”

“Last week I had ozone injections on the top of my right foot for pain from my arthritis. The pain level before the injections was a 10 all the time. Now if I get pain it’s a 2.”

Linda S. - Raytown, MO

“At age 4 my daughter Aria started ballet classes and we noticed that it seemed like Aria was rolling in on her feet. She’d been having balance issues and complaining that her legs hurt for several months but we thought it was growing pains. As she played and danced her pain increased to the point that she’d wake up crying and we would have to rub her legs to get her to go to sleep.

We talked to our chiropractor who recommended Dr. Foster. We are SO thankful that he did. We met with Dr. Foster and at our first appointment we decided to use shoe inserts to support her feet with the plan to revisit and look at surgery when she was 5. We had the first procedure in September of 2017 and the second in December of 2017. Dr. Foster and his staff have been fantastic. They’ve treated Aria like she was family and are so sweet with her. Aria is recovering so well and already is able to play longer than she could before. We couldn’t be happier with the HyProCure procedure or the care we’ve received from Dr. Foster and his staff. Aria says, ‘Dr. Foster did a good job, he’s a good doctor!'”

Erin B. - Lee's Summit, MO

“I called with an emergency toe issue that was swollen and very painful. The staff was so kind and were able to accommodate me with a work-in appointment the same day. Dr. Foster was amazing and I was able to walk out of the office pain-free. I can’t thank them enough!”

Mary H. - Raymore, MO

“I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Foster. I have worked with many doctors over the years, and they don’t come any better than this one. He worked with me through a lengthy recovery, and throughout the process, he went above and beyond for me constantly. He truly cares about the health and welfare of his patients. He goes out of his way to ensure they are as supported as possible, from their medical care to their financial options. I could not possibly recommend him highly enough.”

Charles H. - Peculiar, MO

“Dr. Foster is very professional but considerate of each individual patient. He gives the best care available, yet he lets you know the financial implications.”

Mary G. - Gladstone, MO

“In addition to my successful surgery, my recovery has been aided by Dr. Foster’s impeccable “bed-side” manner and his highly personable and professional staff.”

Susan V. - Harrisonville, MO

“Dr. Foster has been able to do in one year that two other doctors could not do. He has been able to get all of my toes straight and the hardware out. He has truly been an angel.”

Linda S. - Raytown, MO

“Been coming to see Dr. Joel for 1 1/2 years. He is an excellent doctor and staff is excellent. My whole family comes here.”

Bill A. - Blue Springs, MO

“I am a diabetic with foot ulcers. After 13 months of treatment involving four other doctors, my ulcers just would not heal or get better. I had infections in both feet and was in fear losing a limb or at best a toe. My cardiologist suggested I see Dr. Foster. Some of the best advice I got in my entire life, and I am 60 years old. Dr. Foster has my feet healed and moving in the right direction. … His practice and staff have shown me dedication in what they do.”

Herman D. - Raytown, MO

“Thank you so much from the bottom of my feet! After 25 years, I finally have relief.”
