The initial visit went very well. Staff was excellent. Lee DeDore throughly explained the ex-ray and MRI images. Dr. Forsythe listened and provided a clear understanding of the procedure and scheduled surgery ASAP. Maryellen Gebien provided instructions and next steps prior to surgery. Very professional and expeditious.

Follow up at 6 months for shoulder replacement. Range of motion better than before surgery and pain is absent.

Dr.Forsythe is a fantastic surgeon and performed ACL reconstruction surgery on my left knee and the results have been great. I had a 100% tear of my ACL in my left knee due to a sport injury a few years ago. I carried around with it for a few years and finally decided to get it fixed last year. As I looked for surgeons in the area, a few names always popped up. Dr.Forsythe was always top of that list. His knowledge, skills, patience and ability to work with me always struck me. He was clear and explained everything to me and addressed all my concerns.My recovery has been great and I have full functionality and strength now in my knee and really glad to have had Dr.Forsythe as my Doctor.

Dr. Forsythe and his staff are amazing. I had total shoulder replacement surgery last year and couldn’t be happier with my results. I refer all my family and friends to him. Thanks, Dr Forsythe

Worst Dr I’ve ever seen. This man was the IME for my work injury (right knee). Both visits had unacceptable wait times (2 hours) and when I finally saw him, he was very arrogant and had zero compassion. He asked for me to perform tests that I could not perform due to the injury and the pain. He reported to the work Comp carrier that I was over exaggerating my pain and released me back to work, full duty (police officer) with no restrictions. This was after he knew that my Dr said my injury would require surgery. I couldn’t walk without pain and my knee would be swollen if I was on it too much, Though he denied surgery, my own (far more intelligent) Dr. did the surgery and removed a lot of damaged cartilage. Finally, I have no pain under my knee cap and I’m looking forward to getting back to normal. I would not recommend Dr Forsythe to anyone.

Dr. Forsythe is one of the best doctors I have ever had. He and his staff were friendly and easy to talk to. They were also patient with me when I had many questions about my surgery and they fully explained what to expect so that was prepared. I would highly recommend Dr. Forsythe.

Dr Forsythe is beyond knowledgeable he knows his stuff. He tells you what’s wrong, how he will fix it, and he waste no time getting you on a treatment plan. I trust his medical opinions. Never doubt him. I’ve seen him twice and he’s gotten me back to 100% each time.

Dr. Forsythe performed my rotator cuff surgery in fall 2018. Followed his rehab therapy guidelines and therapists were amazed at rate of progress. Six months post surgery I have full range of motion and zero pain or side affects. Dr Forsythe is an incredibly skillful surgeon and I highly recommend him.

Last June I suffered a severe knee injury and in result had to have two knee surgeries. Dr. Forsythe was amazing through the whole process. I could not have asked for better care and due to his great work I am able to once again enjoy playing sports.
