Patient Comments (2)
in Cobleskill, NY |
Dr. Forrest has been treating my back for 6 years and in that time he has repeatedly messed up my prescriptions, forgotten to write them or wrote the wrong prescription. His bedside manor is nonexistent and he is more interested in putting his notes in the computer than interacting with me. I am glad he is retiring. I'm sure my new doctor will be better than doctor Forrest it would be hard not to better.

Dr Forrest has gone above and beyond for my brother,who spent 3+ months inpatient under his care. My brother was told he would never walk again, due to multiple areas of permanent spinal cord damage. With Dr Forrest's care & continued supervision, my brother has not only been able to walk short distances without assistance. But he actually has mowed the lawn with a push mower! The following year, my mother suffered a stroke and Dr Forrest has taken her on as a patient and we are thrilled
