Dr. Paul Foster, MD

Ear, Nose & Throat Doctor

Professional statement

After completing his medical degree at the University of Florida College of Medicine in Gainesville, Florida in 1997, Dr. Paul Foster spent one year doing extensive research on the inner ear before entering the 5 year residency in Otolaryngology at the University of Miami. This training serves him well in his medical practice along side his father, Dr. A. Clifford Foster, whom he joined in 2003. Dr. Paul Foster became board-certified in Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery shortly after, and continues to demonstrate those qualities that both his patients and colleagues find admirable, reassuring, and highly competent.

Office waiting room was packed but I was seen relatively quickly, in under 30 minutes for sure. Dr. Foster is very well educated and it shows. He was passionate about my condition and offered multiple suggestions as per my treatment needs.He was very polite and I am happy to have chosen him as my doctor. Staff is polite as well and office is very clean.

The problem now with doctors is that they dont have all the facilities to do all the examas they need so they have to send you out for exams Better to find a doctor that can do all exams and give you a diagnosis

Being in a vacation destination and needing an immediate appt. is a scary thing. I was so pleased to be able to get a quick appt. with Dr. Foster. He seemed very knowledgeable and handled the visit very professionally. I feltcomfortable despite my diagnosis. I only wish I could stay long enough to make my follow up appt. with him. I'm not certain I can find the same level of care at home.

I was a little disappointed ... My primary doctor suggested to visit Dr Paul Foster because of ear pain & a deep ear cleanse. When I got there. Seeing the doctor was pretty fast and his staff was super nice. Thedoctor asked me a couple of questions and then told me the pain behind my ears have to do with my neck. Then he proceeded to clean my ears which was really painful. Though he was very nice I left wondering if everything was okay with my ears. The lack of reassurance left me wanting to check out another ear doctor. I think next time he should see less patients and really take the time to speak to his patients.

It seems like they just want to get you in and out as quickly as possible to go to the next person. No importance as to what concerns you might have, almost felt like it was bad for me to ask questions.

Very helpful. Answered all of my questions and asked me pertinent questions to get information on my sore throat. I even heard him referring another patient to a dermatologist for a mole next to her ear. Talk about going the extra mile! Would definitely recommend.
