NASHVILLE, TN, August 14, 2011 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Dr. Jerry M. Foster, a veteran medical practitioner in the greater Nashville area announces a transition to the field of consulting. "In practicing internal medicine and oncology, I have spent time with patients who have been returned an unfavorable diagnosis," says Dr. Jerry M. Foster. The lack of a second opinion, for more information and sometimes even simple care becomes detrimental to these patients, explains Dr. Jerry M. Foster.
When confronted with the uncertainties of a particular diagnosis, patients and their families need a third party to help them walk through all the different processes, says Dr. Foster. "Many times patients know there is information that they need, they are just not sure what questions to ask," reports Dr. Jerry M. Foster. This new transition will place Dr. Jerry M. Foster in a role where he can answer the unasked questions, review medical records offering a second opinion and even assist with information about insurance concerns. "I have been working in this field for so many years, that I can often anticipate what a patient and their family will need to know," says Dr. Jerry M. Foster.
A graduate of North Carolina State University, Dr. Jerry M. Foster completed his doctoral studies at both Vanderbilt and Duke Universities. As well, Dr. Jerry M. Foster attended the London University School of Tropical Medicine located in London, England. "When I entered medicine it was with the heart to help people," explains Dr. Jerry M. Foster. And some thirty years later, Dr. Jerry M. Foster says he still maintains that same heart of service.
The medical consulting services of Dr. Jerry M. Foster will be offered primarily via the Internet. "Costs, particularly in health care, are rising. This form of assistance is cost effective for patients," states Dr. Jerry M. Foster. Offering such third party consultation via the web will reduce any related travel costs and expenses that would be normally be associated with such care, says Dr. Jerry M. Foster. "And in these sort of situations, where information is wanted and wanted right away, working via the web will assist patients in receiving an answer quickly," Dr. Jerry M. Foster explains.
"There are no questions ever too simple. This new direction in my career and life will allow me to alleviate fears and truly empower patients and families with information," adds Dr. Jerry M. Foster. Helping patients and their loved ones review different options and achieve peace mind "is the highest honor and privilege I have had over my thirty plus year career," concludes Dr. Jerry M. Foster.
