Drs are helpful! Dr. Forsythe was informative and willing to help me get financial assistance with my stage 4 cancer and help with necessary paperwork. His office manager has not helped at all! Heard her tell the receptionist "what's she still doing here" and called me and asked! I was waiting for another Dr. She wasn't up front about the fees and so I didn't have 2500 dollars on me but she sure took my 700... Waste of a trip. they say they'll help but not if your manager doesn't approve?

My mother spent 8 years under the care of Dr. Forsythe. She had stage 4 breast cancer. When doctors told her there was very little hope, we research together and found Dr. Forsythe. His treatments and care allowed my mother another 8 years of life. I too saw Dr. Forsythe. He is absolutely brilliant, caring and giving of his time. The standard of care for cancer is poison; there are alternatives, thus I suggest you speak with Dr. Forsythe if you have cancer and want a different approach....
I lost faith in their ability to care for me due to incompetents, but more importantly the lack of integraty. So very disappointed. The reason the reviews are so good is they have paicients fill this out in the first month of service. The care here degraded my health tremendously.

It has been a dream come true to be here this month. I could not have imagined a finer experience and I am a good dreamer usually. Dr Forsythe's wisdom and courage and kindness seem exceptional to me and I have been blessed with many wonderful doctors in my life. I appreciate all that you have done for me and will be pleased to send anyone who asks directly to you. In fact I already have.

Dr. Forsythe is the most attentive, respectful, kind, and gentle Spirit in the medical field that my Wife and I have ever had the privilege to have treatment from. His vast knowledge that He clearly shares with His patients is informative, comforting, and assuring. We have come to trust His expertise implicitly. We both have shared our time at Century Wellness Clinic with many of our friends and strangers that we come across in our travels as Cancer topic comes up often in conversation. Results!
