THIS DOCTOR NOT ONLY EXPLAINED EVERYTHING TO ME AT MY APPOINTMENT ABOUT THE PROBLEMS SHE KEEPS TRACK OF, BUT SHE RECOMMENDED SPECIALISTS WHO WERE ALSO AMAZING. EVEN THOUGH I DO NOT NEED TO SEE HER FOR A YEAR, SHE ASKED ME TO SEND HER A MESSAGE ABOUT THE OTHER HEALTH PROBLEMS I AM HAVING JUST TO KEEP HER UP TO DATE. SHE CARES ABOUT HER PATIENTS, IT SHOWS THRU AND THRU. SHE IS AN ASSET TO NORTHWESTERN. YOU RARELY FIND A DOCTOR THIS COMPASSIONATE!!!

Dr. Kelly Foster was fantastic. I was there for a diagnosis - cancer or not - and she came in, greeted my wife and I and the said she wanted to "cut right to the chase" and shared that I did not have cancer. She expressed understanding and took her time to educate me about why I was there and what she felt was actually going on and what we needed to do moving forward. She was confident, reassuring and kind. My wife is also a healthcare provider and we both agreed, she was fantastic.

Dr. Foster had printed out information and highlighted relevant content that we discussed. It was a dream, and so easy to take home and remember what we discussed. She asked if I use MyChart (I do), and welcomed any questions through the system - so nice!
