Specialties

Dr. Robert E Foster has the following 2 specialties

  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Cardiology

    Cardiologists are doctors who specialize in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of conditions related to the heart and blood vessels.
    A patient may be referred to a cardiologist if he experiences symptoms like chest pains, shortness of breath, dizziness, or high blood pressure. The physician will then evaluate your symptoms, take your health and family history and your weight. The cardiologist may order additional diagnostic tests, such as an echocardiogram, X-ray or blood tests. If necessary, the cardiologist may also call for a cardiac catheterization - a procedure in which a small tube is inserted into or near the heart that can take pictures of the heart's activity, or relieve blockage.
    Once determining whether there is a heart condition, a cardiologist will treat a patient through cholesterol management, cardiac rehabilitation, and fitness. If surgical intervention is required, like open-heart surgery, a cardiologist will make that determination, but a cardiothoracic surgeon will perform the procedure.

cold lazer. Severe PAD in both legs.

medical situation. pain in lower legs had eliminated jogging and walking. repeated trips to orthopedic drs had not helped. finally someone took my ankle pulse and found out that circulation was very low. I found out from a friend about Dr Foster and the cold lazer procedure. I had almost complete blockage in both legs. Dr Foster has opened circulation in both legs without invasive surgery. I can now walk again.
