Patient Comments (3)

Dr. Forest is very nice but not very professional. If you want someone who advocates for you and your health,she's not the right person. She was late for every single visit and was incredibly rushed. Sometimes my meds wouldn't even be ready at the pharmacy and some orders weren't sent on time....more
