I would not bring my dying dog to Fortner. She doesn't give a crap about you and certainly has no concern and doesn't bother sending you for tests and just prescribes, prescribes, prescribes. She's a miserable human being, angry and no class. Don't EVER question her or she will kick you out of...more

I would not recommend this doctor. We waited forever, not enough room in waiting room. When we finally saw her, she never greeted us, she was extremely rude, her attitude was deplorable, she was intimidating, and angry, and we felt very rushed through the exam. Worst doctor experience ever!
