Patient Comments (1)
in Arlington, VA |
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.
