One Star

Today was my first time as a patient with Dr. Foster. She treated me with disrespect and had a terrible attitude. Upon entering the room she failed to even introduce herself to me to make me feel comfortable. She spoke to me in a very condescending manner. She failed to answer any of my questions concerning my issues and instead constantly asked me "Do you have any questions?". How can I ask questions if she isn't giving me any information that I didn't already know? She asked me if I was on birth control, and when I told her no she made an extremely sarcastic, rude remark, as if she personally judged me. While she completed my pap smear she was very rough and I don't even think she put the gel on the instrument used during a pap smear. Needless to say, it hurt and she did not even try to console me. When I told her it hurt and that she was moving too fast, she said "Girl, I have 12 more patients after you!", as if I was just a number that she needed to rush to get through with. I couldn't believe it! I literally started crying during the procedure and she did not even care. She just prescribed medication to me and left. I left around 5:45pm. Upon leaving I realized that the office closed at 6:00pm. So how could she possibly have had 12 more patients after me?? Sarcasm or not, she was rude and I will never return to this establishment again!

Furious with Foster

Dr. Foster at one time was a very attentive and professional doctor. When she moved with WHCIL she became short, rude, even appeared self absorbed at times. Appointments with her are rushed. Her answers to questions are short and lack a full explanation. She avoids speaking with patients directly when possible and is so abrupt when she does talk with you. She delivered my baby girl with a vacuum causing cephlohematoma on her head. She also delivered my second child leaving a ton of scar tissue from the first procedure. Dr. Foster additionally performed a tubal ligation on me which failed! !! I am now faced with having a child that I did not plan. My husband and I thought that our family was complete. I am very disappointed in Dr. Foster. She treats some patients like crap and offers no apologies. I trusted her and was deceived. Never again. I strongly advise anyone to choose a different doctor. Don't trust this woman with your health.
