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.

From the first consultation to the surgery with Dr. Forsberg, I found him to be an extremely knowledgable doctor in terms of his profession. Personality wise, I'd describe him as urbane, kind, humble, friendly, concerned with his patients' comfort, and sensitivity to the environment. He has an excellent sense of humor so do not be afraid to crack jokes with him. I could tell he loves his profession because he's genuinely concerned with the well-being of those he treats. Much gratitude for him.
