Dr. Norman Foster is a board certified geriatric neurologist who has specialized in brain imaging and dementing and neurodegenerative diseases for over 30 years.

Dr. Foster sees patients in CACIR’s sub-specialty Cognitive Disorders Clinic. His clinical interests include a broad spectrum of neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer’s disease, frontotemporal dementia, and dementia that is atypical, rapidly progressive, early-onset, focal, or familial.

did not seem very organized and not sure he had all the test results from all the tests. This is a guess, but it seemed that way to me.UofU Patient May 19, 2014
after a few brief questions, I was told I probably had Alzheimer's . I'm sure you see many patients but I left feeling like I was doomed after such a brief exam.UofU Patient April 06, 2014
Once again we are very lucky to have Norman Foster as a doctorUofU Patient March 28, 2014
seem their biggest concern was how good our health insurance wasUofU Patient February 03, 2014
some uncertainty as who would talk to primary care provider about Rx recommendations.UofU Patient January 12, 2014
we like Dr Foster- he presents a very personal, encouraging & caring relationshipUofU Patient November 14, 2013
GoodUofU Patient August 19, 2013
We left with no idea of how to proceed; why we needed another mri; just treatment ideas and information etc. We may consult another physician.UofU Patient July 31, 2013
Dr Foster appears to be very experienced in dealing with the type of medical problems that my uncle is presenting. Sometimes we wonder what difference it could have made if we had had the chance to have seen him a year or two prior (with hindsight!).UofU Patient May 29, 2013
The clinic is excellent in sharing a scary diagnosis in a candid yet compassionate manner. I am grateful for both.UofU Patient May 07, 2013
Dr Foster is awesome!UofU Patient April 22, 2013
I would recommend the staff to all. They are greatUofU Patient April 04, 2013
Patient did not feel like she was included in the discussion. Dr. Foster spoke with family instead of directing the conversation to her. She indicated that she felt like a illness instead of a person when he was directing teaching to resident (?).UofU Patient March 04, 2013
I believe should have provided more information about what the initial testing revealed. A little bit condescending.UofU Patient November 07, 2012
We felt comfortable with the counsel and direction Dr Foster gave to us. We value his expertise and know we are on the right track if we follow his advise.UofU Patient October 22, 2012
Dr Foster was awesome. Obviously knows what he is doing and instills confidence. My wife is looking forward to her next visit with him when he expects to confirm with her what is going on. She is comfortable with whatever the outcome is.UofU Patient October 18, 2012
dr. foster was very helpful in sorting out my memory loss problem.UofU Patient October 08, 2012
We feel we had the very best of careUofU Patient October 04, 2012
We had not received the notes from the first visit so we were not fully prepared for the discussion. Dr. Foster had to take more time explaining all of those things at the onset of the discussion. This took up more of his time. He did not seem to rush over anything even though this took longer.UofU Patient September 20, 2012
The doctor had a tendency to speak in doctor jargon which was a bit hard to understand. However he was very polite.UofU Patient August 09, 2012
Dr. Foster was very personable. He made us feel comfortable about the next steps and required testing for her condition. She was very at ease with him.UofU Patient May 21, 2012
Dr Foster has a way of providing pertinent information in a positive way that we can understand. We feel he is sincerely concerned, and highly qualified in his field. We appreciate the care we've received. The care goes beyond diagnosis, to include ways of coping, in a proactive format before needs arise.UofU Patient March 19, 2012
We both feel comfortable with the doctor and his team and have extremely high confidence in his capacity and desire to help.UofU Patient January 23, 2012
