Dr. Foster, a native of San Diego California and graduate of Hampton University, earned his medical degree from Emory University in 2001, then completed residency at Emory and Grady Hospitals in Atlanta, Georgia.
He was awarded an advanced cardiovascular imaging fellowship by Tulane University in New Orleans. He had completed two months of his study when, as one of the physicians who remained in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina, he was instrumental in patient evacuation efforts and later rebuilding of the post-Katrina healthcare infrastructure. Dr. Foster completed a general cardiovascular diseases fellowship at Tulane, then continued his training as a clinical cardiac electrophysiologist with the University of Toledo Medical Center. After fellowship, he remained there, as an assistant professor, who enjoyed teaching, patient care, and research publication.
Dr. Foster currently holds four board certifications: Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology, Cardiovascular Diseases, Nuclear Cardiology, and Internal Medicine. His main areas of interest include cardiac arrhythmia management, catheter ablation (including cryoablation), syncope, and cardiac implantable device implantation and management (including subcutaneous ICD).
His outside interests are first of all, his family and then running marathons, doing genealogical research, and woodworking.
