Kathleen Foster, M.D., F.A.C.O.G.

Medical Doctor, OB/GYN


Kathleen Foster, M.D., F.A.C.O.G. is from Kingsport, TN and graduated from Dobyns-Bennett High School. Growing up, she admired her grandfather, who was a local family physician. She received her undergraduate degree from Furman University and followed in her grandfather’s footsteps by attending the University of Tennessee for medical school.  Dr. Foster’s interest in surgery and her desire to form long-term relationships with her patients led her to pursue a career in Obstetrics and Gynecology.  She completed her residency training in New England at the University of Connecticut.  After four long, cold winters, she decided to move back down south and got her first job at WakeMed in Raleigh where she gained invaluable experience caring for high and low-risk OB and GYN patients.  She met her husband (another Kingsportian) in Raleigh.  Two boys and 11 years later, she started feeling pulled toward her hometown.  Dr. Foster wanted her kids to experience the wonder of growing up around the mountains, fields and rivers of East Tennessee.  She also wanted to take advantage of the only true “parenting hack” out there – having the grandparents nearby. Dr. Foster is excited to bring what she has learned to her patients here in East Tennessee.
