James Foster, MD


Hi, my name is James Foster and I would consider it to be an honor and privilege to be your child’s pediatrician. I have practiced pediatrics for the past 25 years and the principles of my practice are based on being both caring and careful. I have a profound respect for the trust and responsibility that families place in me to provide health care for their children.

I was born and raised in Maine, so I bring a lifetime of understanding to caring for Maine families. In addition to my general pediatric practice at InterMed, I am also chief of pediatrics at Mercy Hospital and serve as the school physician for the city of South Portland. I also take an important role in the leadership of InterMed, having served on the board of directors for the past 12 years. My special interests include dermatology, infectious diseases, asthma, and sports medicine.
