    in Castle Rock, CO |
    The wait time to see Dr Fortin (as a new patient) was over 5 weeks which was a miserable wait with many migraines. When I did get in to see him, he demonstrated good bedside manner and listened. I placed a call to his office a few days after I started a new medication for migraine prevention. He called back to ask how the medication was working and spoke with me about trying another med since the first was causing side effects. I was surprised that he called back, not the nurse or MA!

    He recommended that I try a new medication for my disorder. However, when my insurance company required further information and testing, he did not comply. 3 1/2 months and 2 follow-up calls, nothing had been done to write a letter or make a referral for the test.

    I was referred to Dr. Fortin for some tests. I found him to be knowledgable, professional and very interested in what I had to say. After other doctors treated me as if I'm senile, I appreciated his attention. I have told a friend she should try to switch from her neurologist to Dr. Fortin. I have confidence in him.
