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

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.
