What People Say About Dr. James Forsen, MD
I credit Dr. James Forsen with saving my child's life. She was floating around for three months in the health care system going from Dr. to Dr. misdiagnosed. He was savvy enough to recognize a rare disease that 1 in 1 million kids get. He had only seen this one time in 30 years. We would have taken the wrong course of treatment with a disease that kills people in 6 months. I can't give him enough kudos.
