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.
