    Fantastic. Very nice and took the time to answer all my questions. Removed my mole and left no scars. Love him.

    My family has been seeing Dr. Forsha for almost 20 years. We all have been happy with our care with the physician staff. Medical Assistants are always very nice.

    Hardly even looked at my sons skin. Asked if he could do a skin sample and my child ended up with stitches. I specifically asked if the skin sample would include having psoriasis looked at as a diagnosis. He said he would and never did. Didn't tell us to keep stitches wet, so it scabbed over and they had to DIG the stitches out of my 8 year old. Then, the bill got sent out of network and I received a bill for $2300 to find out they ONLY looked for one thing, and not what I asked him to look for

    I was very unimpressed with my service here. It hurt like hell when the only male nurse drew my blood. He had to poke me 5 times and refused to get someone with more experience to help him out. The doctor came in and cut me up for things that later I learned I didn't need done. When I got the bill later I found out the things that he didn't need to do but did were not covered by my insurance. I had a massive bill. I will never go back

    Staff was inconsiderate. Wait time horrible. Drs don't know what they are doing. Be warned they are horrible
    in West Jordan, UT |
    I was there twice during the past twelve months with a different condition each time. The service received was very professional. Positive results were distinctly noticeable within 24 hours, and only one visit was required for each condition. I recommend Dr. Forsha without any reservations.
