About me

Dr. Foster specializes in caring for children while they are hospitalized for a broad range of issues. He spends a significant portion of his time conducting clinical research to reduce childhood obesity and investigate different methods of drug dosing for children with obesity.

Out of the hospital, Dr. Foster enjoys spending time with his wife and two children who jump into every body of water they see, do lots of puzzles and draw lots of abstract pictures. On his own, he plays guitar and surfs as he is able.

Before scheduling your appointment, we recommend you contact your insurance company to verify that the OHSU Health location or provider you plan to visit is included in your network. Your insurance company will also be able to inform you of any copayments, co–insurance, or deductibles that will be your responsibility. If you proceed in scheduling an appointment and your health insurance benefits do not participate with OHSU providers, your out of pocket liability may be higher. Visit the billing and insurance section of our site for more information.
