Dr. Goforth is an awesome doc. He helped my dad with his diabetes. We follow his instructions, took meds he sends at home and within two months he's no longer a type two diabetes patient !! I'm happy we found him and I'm thankful that I can have my dad for a long time in my life. My dad was so happy that he's diabetes is under control and no more pinching his fingers!! :) :) Thank you so much Doctor
