Ratings for Dr. Darlene K. Foster
Steer clear of this office! I would love to be able to give you an in-depth view of Doctor Foster, her experience, her knowledge, etc, but I can't. Why? I never saw her. I waited for almost TWO HOURS, combined in the front waiting room, and 30 minutes alone in an exam room, without being seen, before walking out. I asked one of the nurses/asst's, about an hour and a quarter into my wait, if this is normal, or if there has been some emergency. She confirmed, without a trace of embarrassment, that this waiting time was NORMAL; she said it usually takes 45min-to-an-hour-plus to get seen, and advised that if I was in a hurry, I should schedule to be her first appt of the day. This is a doctor who has utter contempt for her patients' time, in addition to being (like many doctors) simply too greedy to schedule fewer patients per day. The rest of the staff, while polite, seemed very unhappy. The office was very quiet, no laughter, no charm. Just a joyless place all around.
This doctor is so rude, even chewing out my father for missing an appointment we did not miss, even tho he is not the one responsible for getting him to appointments. When pointed out to her that he did not miss the appt, she failed to apologize, even though she had threatened to drop him as a patient! And she must own an interest in the lab, as I have never known a dr to order so many routine blood tests. She's a Medicare milker
Is it odd that all Blue Cross Blueshield patients all have smiley faces and a re happy but anyone else with different insurance is not happy or negative.....Is that come across as odd, those of you that were happy change your insurance and see if she acts the same??? Ask yourself, I have been on both sides, not prety at all
Update: Foster just had twins! I think she can now double in pediatrics[smile]. I am somewhat biased since she has been my primary for 10 years. Can be slightly blunt, but knows her stuff. Now 50, she is at the summit of medical expertise. I got my 15 year term life insurance renewed.
I have been a patient for several years. The waiting time varies as with any Dr.'s office or ER from 15min to 2 hrs. I am shocked that anyone would veiw her bedside manner as rude. She is very professional and has been very thorough in covering all of my concerns. Yes, she is tough on being in great health but in the long run who will really benefit - me. I plan to stay with her as long as she continues to practice.
I visited the doctor two weeks ago. she is a internal doctor with many old patients. She mainly goes by blood test, and you might need to go see specialist. she is getting divorced in 2010 so her hands are a little more cold than usual. But she has been my dr for 10 years, i am male healthy except cholesterol, arthrist, deprsson
