in Henderson NV |
Dr Forage was so understanding and open minded. I was scared to get surgery so he assured me we would try everything else before cutting into me! When the procedures we tried didn't work he assured me he would take great care of me,and they sure did after surgery I am feeling much better and feel like this was a huge step in the right direction. Have a list of questions and he will make sure to answer them.The wait is long sometimes go expecting it and it's not so bad. Thx dr Forage and staff.

I was appalled at his curt, indifferent, and flippant attitude. He was operating on my mother the next day to remove a large brain tumor. He stared at the computer files and typed without making any eye contact with us. It was difficult to get our questions answered on what to expect with the surgery. He seemed to have no recollection of examining her in the hospital 10 days before or her existing physical deficits. My mother had a grim prognosis and his cavalier attitude was not reassuring.

I have to say a majority of the reviews were not very nice and after experiencing Dr. Forage I myself was irritated with his demeanor, however that being said, I don't care what his demeanor is as long as he is good at what he does. I decided to reserch this doctor and found he is excellent at what he does! He did my sons brain surgery two days ago and was awesome! Research yourself, don't go off reviews, personality doesn't matter when it's your life! I recommend him!!!

I was in a lots of pain for over 6 years, till I was recommended to Dr Forage, in a few words I would say from the bottom of my heart, thank you Dr Forage for my new life, I had a multiple problems with discs 5, 6 and seven, I went into surgery at 3 pm and I was out by 7 pm, the 1 thing I remember was by 1 am in the morning I was walking on my on without the horrible pain , I appreciate everything that you did for me and again my new life.

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.

Dr Forage explained my husband's condition and the surgery procedure in a very caring and understandable way. Was very pleased with the appointment.
