What People Say About Dr. Akara Forsythe, MD
Reply
As a patient with a chronic pain condition, one would expect a Dr. that specializes in pain would be willing to at least act like they are listening and act like they care. Dr. Forsythe does neither and shows little concern for the suffering of the patient. That's how she treated me. She was short, snippy, rude, condescending and demeaning. I was discouraged and suffered a lot longer than necessary because of Dr. Akara Forsythe but now I am actually in good hands with a pain specialist that has made all the difference in the world for me.
