This is the worst Doctor. His arrogance essentially led to the death of my Mother. Stay far far away from him.

Dr. Forcione told my mother he was 99.9% sure the growth in her abdomen was not cancer. Aside from this being a baffling and irresponsible thing to say, he was 100% incorrect and it delayed the onset of treatment. Would not recommend anyone trust this doctor despite the overall good care at mgh.
