Had a great experience with Dr Forbes and his staff. Explained thing in a way anyone can understand. I had an emergency surgery via life flight and I owe Dr Forbes, the surgical team and his staff my life. I would highly recommend him to anyone dealing with cardo issues. Follow up after surgery were also excellent and he and his staff alway followed up when I had any concerns.

Dr. Forbes was very personable and spent a good deal of time answering all of our questions about my aortic valve replacement. He reassured us and we trusted his experience and cinfidence. Office staff and nurses were all very friendly, thorough and returned calla quickly. Definetly recommend him as a heart surgeon.
