Paul Foster, DO, FACEP

Co-Founder/Medical Director

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 in early 2019 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 communities of San Antonio and 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 all of his 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 now help heal the San Antonio community.


Oscar J. Martinez MD, FACEP

Co-Founder/Medical Director

Dr. Martinez was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas. He is a graduate of The University of Texas Southwestern Medical School and remained at UT Southwestern to complete his residency in Emergency Medicine at Parkland Hospital. He is Board Certified in Emergency Medicine and has worked as an attending physician and medical director at urban trauma centers, rural hospitals, and free-standing Emergency Departments. During his tenure as medical director, he was awarded the Thomas Frist Humanitarian Award, given to individuals who serve their community and whose daily dedication and care giving epitomize the highest standards of quality and personal commitment. Before his medical career, Dr. Martinez received a Bachelor of Arts in Economics at Georgetown University and worked as a business consultant in San Francisco, California. In 2011, he founded the non-profit GivingMore.org to provide free medical care and education to rural villages in southwest Nicaragua.

Throughout his medical career, Dr. Martinez has seen the lack of resources and effective treatments available to people with mental health illness. To better address this widespread problem, Dr. Martinez joined San Antonio Ketamine Specialists. He is dedicated to providing excellent care with the compassion and understanding patients deserve.
