Dr. Forrester will take as much time as necessary to discuss my condition and answer all my questions. During two hospital stays for non-kidney related illnesses, Dr. Forrester made timely and frequent visits and was very helpful in discussing medical issues and insuring medication was appropriate for my kidney issues. I have total confidence in Dr Forrester.
