After being run over by a car on my motorcycle my leg was hanging on by the skin only and facing backwards. Dr. Foster spent close to a year working on making me better. I never thought I would be able to walk again. Much less work. God blessed me when he took me to be fixed by Dr. Foster. Truly exceptional doctor!!

Had surgery on left forearm in 2014. Now a bone mass is growing in the same place, need surgery again.

Dr. seems very sarcastic, left all decisions regarding my care strictly up to me. I would not ride all the way to Richmond, to see him again. I would rather go to Saks Fifth Ave next door and just go to any Dr. in Hampton Roads to have the bone mass in my arm removed.
