Specialties

Dr. Daniel Foster has the following 3 specialties

  • Sleep Medicine

    A sleep medicine specialist is specially trained in diagnosing and treating disorders involving sleep.
    Sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome and insomnia are very common and can often cause other serious health issues, such as depression, asthma, and migraines. Sleep medicine specialists often work in sleep centers where they observe a patient while sleeping and monitor brain waves, behavior, and vital signs in order to identify the causes of sleep disturbance, or an inability to sleep (insomnia).
    Sleep medicine specialists treat patients through advising on sleep hygiene, providing cognitive behavioral therapy, using light therapy, or medical sleep aides.

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

Good Doctor For Me

Dr. Foster listens to me and talks to me to assess my issues. Diagnosed me for a few things that I did not know about and eased my fears of other medical findings that the Hospital found. I recommend him.

Do not come here. He is a jerk!

I saw Dr.Foster about two months ago for a concussion. I wasn't going to write a review but it really got to me. I have never been treated so poorly by a doctor. He was very condescending and downright rude to me. I was a little off the day I saw him because I had a concussion. He asked me about my normal irritability because it was a standard question and I said no o don't think I'm an irritable person. And he gave some smart comment back. He didn't want to be there. I said the noise from the lights kind of bothered me when he asked if noises normally bother me. And he just shrugged and ignored me. He is such a jerk. When I call back to get a referral he said no I told her to wait a month. When my head was still bothering me. He's awful. Just awful. He doesn't care at all. He's so rude he's probably laughing at all of our comments. I wish I would have read reviews before I went but I had a head injury and wasn't thinking right. I was so uncomfortable and the reception staff is rude as well. This was a horrible experience. Please do not come here. It's such a waste, and they only care about your insurance.

Sorry to see him go

Dr. Foster just sent out a letter that he is leaving the practice in June. This will be a great loss to the practice but a great opportunity for him. He is one of the easiest people to talk with and always spends as much time as necessary to make the patient feel that they are not being rushed. I totally respect his opinion and ability to diagnose the problem with all the right tests. He is going into Public Health and they are fortunate to have this fantastic doctor. Well wishes go with him.

One Star

After several visits to Dr. Foster over a year and a half (trying to give him a chance), I've concluded that he's just gotten complacent in his job. The first couple of appointments were fine and involved him ordering a round of standard tests and ordering the routine template of medicines for seizures. Over time, he became intolerably rude and even somewhat aggressive. After I chose to have brain surgery to correct my seizes, he almost went into a childlike fit and I never could figure out exactly why. I told my neurosurgeon about this and he called Foster himself. During my last visit, I just so happened to be walking by the front desk and heard the administrative staff on the phone with someone say, "I really sorry you're having so many problems with Dr. Foster but you are welcome to see any of our other doctors...". Moreover, I just called the staff to transfer my records to another doctor at Inova Fairfax and the woman just hung up on me. Previously, the straw that broke the camel's back was the very first appointment after my surgery. After I waited an hour in the waiting room, he came in and opened the door and pointed at me and motioned with his finger for me to come with him and didn't look happy. He appears to think he's the principal in school. This is where I drew the conclusion that he's gotten way too complacent to be treating brain issues. Perhaps, he should conduct some quiet self-reflection.

Cluster Headache

Dr. Foster was able to diagnose my cluster headaches in one visit. The average time to diagnose this relatively rare condition is around six years. In the two-plus years that I've been working with him, he's been attentive, understanding and collaborative in my treatment, always asking questions and listening carefully to what I have to say. Additionally, his staff is extremely helpful and friendly.
