What People Say About Dr. Katherine Forte, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
This doctor is great until you decide to go against her wishes. In my case, she wanted me to take birth control pills due to a family history of Ovarian Cancer and a first time incidence of a small ovarian cyst. I am older and although not trying to actively conceive, I am open to becoming a mother. If I take birth control, that will definitely not happen, so I told her I would hold off on this option at this time. She literally insulted, belittled and spoke down to me at my last appointment.

Dr. Forte is the best! I've been seeing her for years and she is informed, interested, professional, on time...I wish all my doctors could be Dr. Forte. Truly. If you need a gynecologist she is tops! The office is convenient, new and clean. Parking easy underground. This is my third location seeing her and I'd travel wherever I have to in order to see her. Fortunately Pasadena is close to me.
