My son has had ear tubes put in, my husband had his tonsils and adenoids, removed and my daughter had both and all by Dr. Forwith. He is amazing! My husband was eating chinese food 2 hours after surgery and played golf the next morning. My daughter ate chicken nuggets for lunch the following day and went shopping. Dr. Forwith really knows what he's doing!

Beware! My grandson is now 14, but when he was 4-5 years old he saw Dr. Forwith for eartubes. After first surgery constantly had infection issues. Dr. recommended another set of tubes, another surgery, and same thing. The Dr then recommended a third surgery and we went to Kosair for second opinion. The Kosair Dr. states the tubes were not inserted properly and why there were drainage issues and infections. The Kosair Dr recommended removal and not to risk further damage to ear.

This was a horrible experience. Dr Forwith comes highly recommended?? I would never send anyone to this place. After waiting an hour and a half he saw me and basically laughed at me. He patted my knee and told me he suspected I was going through menopause. I'm 42. I was tested after seeing him and I am no where near menopause. I am in hypo symptoms with a TSH now of .005. I've gained 30 lbs in 10 weeks. I begged him to help me and he just brushed me off. I left there crying and devastated.
TSH .005 is clearly hyperthyroid, not hypo! I'm sorry you felt brushed off. I remember you quite well as I considerable time trying to help. I try to use humor to lighten the mood - I'm sorry you took it the wrong way. I have never met a patient with that low of a TSH that wasn't miserable so I hope you get the help you need for your overactive, not underactive thyroid. I'm sorry that you felt brushed off - you wanted more thyroid medicine from me and that is the last thing you need!

Dr. Forwith is such a caring and considerate provider. While an office wait may be a little long, it is well worth the wait. He is making sure that each patient he sees understands the tests, procedures, and treatment they will be given and that they understand it. Have already recommended him to others that I know, and will continue to do so.

I definitely recommend seeing Dr Forwith for anything thyroid related. He put me at ease about a scary situation and fully explained and answered all my questions. His staff is wonderful and they all gave me plenty of attention and didn't make me feel rushed.
