I have to say, the receptionists and staff here were WONDERFUL. The treatment I received from the doctors and a select nurse was less than desirable. I started going to this practice as a young child because my mom was also a patient there. Having basically grown up there you would think that they would be caring to my needs, but I did not feel like that. My allergies had grown severely worse, I often complained about it to the nurses, made an appointment with the doctor and told him as well, but they didn't seem to offer any solutions other than "use your nose sprays." Being almost to the point of tears in the office, I was still continuously told the same thing. It got so bad, to the point where I could barely breathe, so I went to a different allergist and discovered that I was suffering from severe asthma as a result of my allergies. The new allergist also found two undiscovered allergies that I am now being treated for which were contributing to my asthma. After asking Allergy Consultants to send over my information to my new allergist, they took weeks and did not send the appropriate information over, causing me to have to start my shot regimen over again. I would not recommend this practice as the level of care they gave me was harmful to my health, even after being a long time/veteran patient.

I was a patient for many years with Dr Fost. He is undoubtedly one of the nicest people you would ever want to meet. His clinical skills are outstanding. His demeanor is pleasant, caring and empathetic. He always affords the time and energy necessary to address each and every concern his patients may have. His ability to develop a strong doctor/patient relationship facilitates highly effective and successful treatment plans. Dr Fost is a "must" for those whose are affected by allergies.

Love love love Dr. Fost! I have struggled with allergies for years and I felt he actually heard my complaints and took a head-on approach with treatment. Generous with the samples as well. Very pleasant man, a real cutie patootie. :-)

Wow...I am surprised to find that he was so helpful to so many people! I waited over an hour and a half in the waiting room for a less then stellar appt. Dr. Fost seemed to have no idea what he was doing and treated me quite rudely. I went to see him for what I thought were hives. I have been to the Emergency Room because of their severity and he was the specialist in my area… After taking my history, he didn’t think that they were hives but bug bites??? Dr. Fost then told me “not to be too concerned”? His nonchalance over my health and well-being was more then starting. I was calm and tried to ask him a few more questions about the supposed “bug bites”. He told me if they keep occurring just to come back and see him again, but would not answer any of my health related questions. It seemed like he was more about taking my co-pay then seeing me as a patient…it was bewildering at best. Maybe you will have a better experience?

Dr. A. Fost is one of the best doctors I have been to in long while! The staff and nurses are very helpful, sympathetic and always ready with a smile. I very rarely have to wait for my appointment; if I ever had to wait it was during the peak of the allergy season. He is EXTREMLY knowledgable in his field, as are the other doctors in the practice. I have recommended his office to many of friends and family and they have agreed with me.

Dr Fost is a charismatic, kind, gentle person, who is willing to take time with his patients and explains the etiology of the condition as well as his plan to treat along with a full explanation of the medications.
