Met Dr. Foster in less than ideal situation after taking a fall requiring emergency surgery. (1 in a 100 Break. My luck). My highest compliment to Dr. F & his staff. He was generous with his time both before & after surgery. His explanation prior to surgery was thorough & understandable. In our follow up visit, he's been just as generous, explaining in great detail the surgery, the challenges & what to expect in the future. I feel very fortunate to have had Dr Foster care for me.
