What a horribly arrogant Doctor JF is! I would not recommend her to anyone who wants to live...She misdiagnosed me & would not listen to the facts that did NOT correspond to her diagnosis. Then she outright LIED when I asked her for a test to confirm! I would have died if I had followed her instructions and not gone to another Dr who correctly diagnosed me in 5 min & took a culture to confirm. Don't take the chance! Go to a Dr who's NOT self-righteous, listens to you & doesn't think they are GOD

Dr.Fortson changed my life. I was seeking help for my severe acne. Dr.Fortson reccomended accutane but my family didn't have health insurance and couldn't afford the meds. Dr.Fortson knew it was the only effective treatment for me and was gracious enough to supply me each month with the manufacturer samples. My acne cleared up within months, and has stayed clear 14 years now after being off the meds. I can't thank Dr.Fortson enough for what she has done for me. I highly recommend

I have been a patient of Dr. Fortson for about three years now. She treats my hair thinning which really isn't so thin any longer. I appreciate the help she has given me in that area, however there are a few other things she has treated successfully for me. She does a wonderful job keeping me very refreshed and young looking with few but selective facial fillers and I recently had her remove a 'growing' mole from my chin that used to resemble a beauty mark when was younger and it looks great!
