I would like to thank Dr. Foster & the team for giving me my life back. If you are suffering like I was with Depression, Anxiety, and Chronic Pain 24/7, and considering this treatment Austine Ketamine Specialists is the best choice you can make. Dr. Foster is not just knowledgeable but has the best bedside manner I have seen in a very long time. I believe he really does care about you as a person who needs help. He is very responsive to you if you need to reach out at any time. I realize that this may not be the cheapest choice but it is worth every penny to get the relief I have gotten from Dr, Fosters help.

Austin Ketamine Specialists is a Ketamine Infusion Clinic located in Austin, TX that was founded on the premise that every person should have the absolute best chance to live their lives unburdened by crippling mental health disorders or chronic pain.

Paul Foster, DO, FACEP
Medical Director/Founder Austin Ketamine Specialists and Houston Ketamine Specialists

Having watched many loved ones and close friends suffer from the incapacitating effects of depression and anxiety, Dr. Foster felt compelled to act. He established Austin Ketamine Specialists with the intention of making safe and effective ketamine therapy accessible to patients facing a wide variety of conditions. Having succeeded in providing the community of Austin, TX with the caring and compassionate relief it needs, Dr. Foster has chosen to expand his practice to the community of Houston, TX.

After serving his country as a member of the US Air Force, Dr. Foster attended Harvard for his undergraduate degree. Recognizing that the modern approach to medicine might be improved upon, he attended Touro University Osteopathic Medicine in California where he earned his Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine. This program allowed him to focus on cultivating an integrative and holistic approach to patient care. Dr. Foster then went on to complete his residency in Emergency Medicine at Mount Sinai Beth Israel in New York City.

Although he was born and raised in Montana, Dr. Foster has called Texas home since 2011. He is a board-certified Emergency Medicine Physician and has worked at emergency rooms throughout the state of Texas. This experience has allowed him to meet and work with individuals from all walks of life, helping him to develop the compassionate and judgment-free approach to care that he has fostered at both clinics. Today, his passion for helping his patients achieve the most fulfilling and wholesome life they possibly can is what propels him and his practice. He truly believes that everyone deserves the chance to live a life unburdened by mental health disorders and chronic pain. Dr. Foster believes that healing is possible, and he is honored by the opportunity to help heal his community.
