Patient Comments (1)
in Blue Ridge, GA |
I have macular degeneration. My doctor retired and a friend told me about Dr. Forrest, I brought my records from my doctor who has retired with me to Dr. Forrest. When I asked how much my disease had progressed, Dr. Forrest did not 'have time" to look at my file. He did not seem to have concerns about me going blind. He told me that I was not a candidate for a medication then gave me a paper with the name of the drug, so that I could "get it". Will not go back.
