Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

My parents live in an assisted living facility, and Dr. Forney is their physician. I have been extremely pleased with Dr. Forney and his staff. They are professional, reliable, and caring. Dr. Forney and his staff have done a great job and are always very responsive to our needs, even after-hours. He regularly conducts visits in-person and checks on my parents at their assisted living facility. This has been a huge burden off my shoulders because it cuts down the many trips we must take to various doctors' offices. My parents really like Dr. Forney and his staff because they are friendly, kind, and listen to their concerns. I would definitely recommend him.
