I love Julie Foster. She tries to go a Naturopathic route. She's very caring & compassionate. She really listens to what you say. She cares about your needs. She tries to relate to you. You never feel rushed. She never would shame/guilt someone. She's been my PCP for 14 years & I appreciate her, very much.

Go and and find out for yourselves what a gem this clinic is.......

I have loved our family's experiences at Pohala clinic. Julie Foster is amazing. She treats you like a whole human being, pushing beyond the boundaries of conventional medicine and incorporating natural remedies, multiple disciplines, and growing community bonds that reach near and far. I love how friendly, caring, and patient Aleena is at the front desk every time we call or visit. It's also been a pleasure to meet many great providers at the clinic, as well as some of Julie's wonderful family members. It has been such a gift to find this place and these caring folks. Everyone goes above and beyond the call of duty. My whole family is seen here! Come for a visit, become part of the community for life.

Pohala Clinic is a treasure chest of health and healing professionals who genuinely care about their clients' life and journey. Julie Foster, FNP - the founder of Pohala and visionary behind it, is my primary care "doctor" and I couldn't imagine navigating my quest for vibrant health with anyone else. Malia Susee, LAc, with her skilled and perceptive treatments are a staple in maintaining and lifting my wellness. Thank you to each of the medical and administrative staff members for taking such great care of me!!

Julie Foster and her staff have provided professional, thoughtful, insightful health and wellness solutions for my entire family for almost 20 years. I am always grateful to have Julie to come to as I navigate women's health, infant, adolescent, and teen issues. She offers well grounded advice, care and follow-up each time I see her and she is careful to consider my values and needs without question. She trusts my body and is alert to new and innovative ideas that nurture the mind, body and spirit. Her ability to listen and hear what is needed is unique in the medical community.

I feel incredibly lucky to be a patient at this clinic, having worked with both Julie and Stephanie, and all the lovely admin and medical staff here. They take such amazing care of their patients, thoroughly explaining AND LISTENING (which is so rare in the medical field), and I love how their care is balanced in both natural/homeopathic ways as well as traditional medicine. Ex: Before getting my tonsils out, they called out of their own volition to set up an appointment for immune support so I was set up to heal comfortably before/after my surgery -- who does that?! This was completely unprompted! Thank you all for all you do!

I was so comfortable with my new dr. The receptionist was extremely helpful and friendly. I was very nervous about a new dr and what to expect, but Dr. Shelat was above my expectations.

As always, Julie was clear and supportive. The online format was not perfect, but was certainly sufficient under the circumstances.

Julie always takes the time to talk to me, answering my questions and commiserate on Bothersome issues that we share. That is comforting and has built a good rapport which is crucial for good healthcare at least it is for me.
