Patient Comments (1)
in Marion, VA |
Dr. Forsythe has performed 2 total knee replacement surgeries on my knees within the last 7 month period. Both of these surgeries were very expertly done with excellent results. Dr. Forsythe is a gifted surgeon who is trained in current methods and procedures. He exhibited a great caring attitude throughout the processes of my surgery. I would fully recommend him to anyone needing orthopedic procedures, especially knee surgeries.
