  • Rheumatology

    A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
    Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.

My health sometimes gets quite difficult, but no matter how hard things get, Dr Foster always has my best interest at heart! Dr Foster is so very kind & super knowledgeable that i know i can depend on what she says will be the best plan of action for me! Dr Foster always goes above & Beyond to give me the care she knows i need. Not many people these days can say they like their doctors, much less say they love their doctors. But when it comes to Dr Foster, i can say i love my RA Dr! I have never had a doctor be as kind and attentive with all aspects of my care as Dr Foster does! If you're looking for a good & highly qualified RA doctor, look no further, because Dr Foster is your best bet all the way around! I have been seeing Dr Foster now for the past 7 years. I just pray she won't retire anytime soon!
