to hell with dr foster he let me go because i told him he had me on to much meds. he said what do u come here for? i told him i need help with my back pain, that i didnt want to sttay n bed all day. all the meds he had me on i couldnt get up and do anything.. so he told not to come back. just because he had me on to many meds. i hope he never gets out of jail. if u dont take all the meds he give u, he dont want to treat u. he just for himself. i think he will get whats coming to him.

Reality check, he will get out of jail and go right back to what he's doing. He only got one year, and then he'll carry on as usual.

He killed my daughter. She was 29. We had no idea she was on anything until she died and we went around to the pharmacies collecting her records. Massive amounts of Oxy. It was unbelievable.
She also dated him. I heard that several young women committed suicide also. Wonder how many were really suicide?
I heard today that he killed himself also with an overdose. Can't find anything to show it's true.

No, He is seen driving through town in his Mercedes daily like nothing can touch him. He owns two restaurants in Gatlinburg, TN. Hellbender's and The Ship Pub. Both serve alchohol and the permits are in his name for both these establishments. How can he keep these permits with a criminal record??? Our local paper, The Mountain Press didn't even report his Guilty Plea and Charges. This guy is aCreep and needs to be stopped!!!!

I said doc is a good person as well as a dr. no my meds are not affecting me. I am not stupid, I took English in school. Doc was not big on increasing meds he gave you meds to help and you had to have an M.R.I. He helped alot of people,he changed my blood pressure medicine my primary Dr. would not he took time with his work,he did not just write he had other means of helping you.I had injections they work but you have to follow orders for any of it to work.Its not his fault people take more medicine than needed.I also said everyone has remarks they know nothing about.Good luck Do hope to see you bak to work soon! Was that simple enough for you i just love it? Why hide post your real name!

I also said his restraunts are none of your alls business,he worked hard long hours to have his personal things.The c on my computer sticks,that is why words look misspelled.I am sure most of you do gooders actually know Doc but will not admitt it.You people pi$$ me off blah blah, when Doc was busy when the charges took place he was available to anyone who needed to see him.He runs a tight ship drug test,pillcounts,he done his part,I go there I know! He has a great staff and you are treated like a person not a number or payday. I hope things work out for Doc,he gets to come back so you good ole blah club an bolt off!!!

I go there I dont belive this for a minute because thats the first question he ask-Is your meds working?Are they to strong? If you told Doc they were to sstrong he would have changed them I know this to be true ,he did mine.If you got kicked out there is more to the story.I can not belive all this $hit flying around,Ive been there when Doc cut peoples meds back they would have a cow!I do not care what you all say I know Doc is a good dr.Im the type that stands up for people I like when people tell lies!

As I said before in another post about him. He was a wonderful man and a wonderful dr. As far as his wife that overdosed goes. She brought her troubles on herself by forging his signature on the scripts she wrote for herself. And doctors don't kill anybody ...the patients that abuse their meds kill themselves!!!

what if you have a very high tolerence to pain meds,,,,unfortunately i do....thats why 3 roxys and 4 xanax a day dont even phase the pain..the dr i go to now doesnt believe in increasing your meds, although ive been on fentenyl,, morphine,, oxycontin,, and the lortab/percocet crap, opana, soboxone,,, and of course roxys....i think if i could get about 4 oxy 40s and 3-4 roxy 30s a day,, i believe that would help me to not be so moserable....when a person experiences pain like i have (it make you wanna kill yourself) but luckily im on zoloft

Ok I go to this doc, and if you think you are going to get that much pain medicine. You are out of your mind. The days of doctors handing out pain pills like skittles are over! Yes I know what pain is! And I mean real pain, and I don't take/or need that much medicine. You are not looking to have a better quality of life, you are looking to stay high all day!
You walk in there and ask for that much medicine, and they will just simply ask you to leave. If you get anything more than 10er opana and 15 mg roxys one your first few visits, I will be shocked!

the truth is they are people on here looking for just that,but the thing is,not all, and thats where you are wrong for judging others on the pretense that all are.just because your mother passed from cancer does that mean you are going to die from it too.thats just an example of how you sound judging others creep.no 2 people are the same and the sooner you learn this the better..why do you keep on and on?just tell us that,what is the real reason you are against this topic for real,get it off your chest man,seriously what are you hiding??and after all these months,it is clear you are hiding something but to afraid to tell it,thus this is where the coward comes from and to just keep putting others down and mentioning them in every other post,thus the creep comes in..get a life,try it man you may be able to look in the mirror afterwards.one thing for sure i am who i am,and it is what it is,but i can look in the mirror,without being ashamed of who i am..can you????answer please!!
