Learn about Dr. Forbes

Care Philosophy

It is important for the physician to develop a doctor/patient relationship, one of mutual respect and trust. The majority of the time patients will tell you what their diseases are. We might not have to do all the various radiologic imaging testing. If we listen carefully and examine the patients very carefully, we can come to a full diagnosis.

Dr Forbes is a good doctor. She is personable, but need to take more time with elderly patients that may need clearer explanations of diagnosis and treatment. When she does, the demonstrates great bedside manner.
