At first I was scared to go to a new doctor. After I have been with my previous doctor for over twenty years. He retired. But finding Dr David foster was a blessing. I was very impressed with my first visitwith him. I will very much like the office visit to continue like that.

The appointment times were true, i was seen right away. His receptionist was pleasant. The office was easy to find. He took my insurance and treated me with kindness and respect. He took my concerns seriously and made me fee likehe was listening. I reccomend him very highly and would visit his office again. Only drawback: PARKING! it's Long Island you expect a parking lot or easy parking. There is no lot, expect street parking and it is OLD SCHOOL bring quarters!

My overall experience was pleasant. Dr. Foster looks promising as my future primary care doctor. The appointment was short and sweet since this was my first appointment with him and I am a new patient. He was very friendly and verycomfortable to talk to. The wait time wasn't bad at all, I was in and out of his office within an hour.

Visit went very well, he listened to all of the symptoms I had been experiencing, did a full physical exam and ran a few tests. I love that he didn't seem to get tunnel vision and focus on any one thing.He kept an open mind, I will be keeping Dr. Foster as my primary care physician.

Walked in for my appointment, filled out the required paperwork and I was being tended to immediately. Wonderful experience, mainly because this doctor actually converses with you to get to know you better aside from the standard questionswhich is half the battle and a lot of doctors these days don't seem to know. Swift appointment, and I'd definitely recommend him.

A visit to Dr. Foster's office is truly a unique and amazing experience. There is virtually no wait time in the waiting room and once you are brought into the examination room you are immediately seen by Dr. Foster, not anurse. His bedside manner is second to none as he is very patient and thorough when answering questions you have. I highly recommend him to anyone in the Valley Stream area.
