    I have been going to Dr. Forman for about 15 years. He is very personable, informative and professional. I never feel rushed there. He always takes an appropriate amount of time to listen to my issues and concerns. He errs on the side of caution and has always recommended additional tests only when warranted. I would highly recommend him.
