      After waiting over 3 hours to see Dr Forage, I approached the office staff. I was told if I did not like it they would be happy to cancel my appointment and I could find another doctor. I stayed and saw Dr Forage. I will never go back.
      in Las Vegas, NV |
      Dr Forage explained my husband's condition and the surgery procedure in a very caring and understandable way. Was very pleased with the appointment.
