Dr. Foster Carr MD has nurtured his passion for the field of telemedicine since 1994, when he created the first portal for personalized medical services ( Telemedical.com ).

Today, Dr Carr's practice is serving a patient base physically in Southern California as well as virtually across the United States and internationally.
