What People Say About Dr. Jana Bures-Forsthoefel, MD

Condescending and patronizing. I went for an IUD insertion and sensed a great amount of bias in her attitude towards me after expressing no longer wanting any more children. Without saying too much, I consulted other physicians that I have a close relationship with through work and they told me to run for the hills. Long story short, be careful how you treat people.

I have been seeing Dr. Jana Forsthoefel for many years, she has always paid close attention to my gynecological issues. Her and her team of doctors at gynecology & obstetrics came together and helped my husband and I bring our handsome baby boy into this world as well. We are planning on baby #2 and we look forward to having Dr. forsthoefel and her team along for the journey.

I asked to put my purse down before stepping on the scale and the nurse ignored my question and yelled for me to step on the scale. I told the arnp about the nurse raising her voice at me and all she arnp said is “that’s funny.” Being yelled at in front of other patients is humiliating. Needless to say I didn’t put my purse down to have my weight taken.

Do you want your gynecologist to chastise your weight and start listing fast food restaurants she assumes you frequent while you’re half naked and feeling vulnerable? Honey, I wouldn’t be caught dead in a Chik-Fil-A. She made me feel very uncomfortable and didn’t even answer my questions about birth control and rushed me out. When I told her I didn’t want kids she also made me feel bad about myself. I am 32 and she treated me like a child. I’ll never go to her again. Beware.

Dr. F is the best for OB and GYN. She really cares and knows her stuff. I would never want to see anyone else. FULL disclosure: I only see her since I had a bad experience with one of the NP's. Her staff takes extended lunch breaks and do not answer phone at 1pm like their office hours state. Still, none of this deters me from choosing Dr. F as my ob-gyn doctor. Everything else is great!

She was my doctor but I never saw her. The different midwives I saw didn't help me with my extreme morning sickness, didn't address my concerns about the prescription they gave me for it. I would wait in the exam room for an hour sometimes. That was after waiting for a long time just to be called back. They pressured me with scare tactics to have my labor induced. It was one of the worst experiences and put me off doctors altogether.

This office does not take prenatal mental illness in pregnant moms seriously. They deflected my concerns in an endless battle to find the care I needed. I was told that after seeing a psychiatrist my meds could be refilled by the Practioners. This was not honored and responsibility of my care was deflected AGAIN. Under no circumstance would I recommend this practice to any moms that have any propensity towards depression. You will not get the medical support you deserve. Shameful.
