This is by far the worst primary doc to go to . There staff have the worst attitude and can care less about there patients. They also have issues refilling your medications. I would never recommend this facility to anyone. The Dr. is rude and can care less for his patients health . Honestly this is...more

Dr forest is great. The only Problem I have with them is, I'm on a medication I will be taking permanently and they never give me refills, I always have to take time off of work and pay for a visit to get my medication.
