About Me

Leave that the best way to achieve the highest possible level of health is a therapeutic relationship between the patient and the physician. I firmly believe that all healthcare decisions should be collaborative rather than dictatorial.

What People Say About Dr. Leigh Forbush, DO

It’s been over five years since we were seen by Dr. Forbush. We miss him dearly. He’s a real doctor. He cares for his patients. He listens. We never felt more cared for medically as people than when we had him as our doctor. I have referred dozens of people to him, and if we didn’t live thousands of miles away, we would still be his patients. In fact, when we were three hours away, we continued to travel to him rather than settle for the doctors available in our town. Five stars plus.

We have never before been so thoroughly cared for! Our family trusts him with each and every challenge we have brought to him. He cared for me during my pregnancy, and was the first to show up during a complicated delivery, He's been able to address preexisting conditions and help my 9 year old breath better, all through osteopathic manipulation, He cares and connects with us as individuals, and as a family. We truly feel like we have his full attention, and we will continue to seek his care

He is great with kids and adult alike. I have never felt like a number in his office, and he ALWAYS give you the time you need, nothing feels rushed. I have had nothing but positive experiences with both him and his staff, shout out to Nurse Kim!

Dr. Forbush gives me peace of mind in knowing that he will always explain everything as thoroughly as can be and seeks to advise on how to help the body heal itself naturally versus jumping to medication. I emailed late one night, not expecting a response until the next day, but he responded within an hour. He's a wonderful doctor & devotes his time into every appointment.
