Dr. Forbush's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Forbush "I'm originally from "the County" and prior to becoming a physician, worked as a paramedic, ER and ICU nurse in a variety of hospitals throughout New England. I continue to work, periodically, in a variety of emergency rooms throughout the state. In my spare time, I enjoy torturing my body through a variety of obstacle course races and screaming at the top of my lungs while driving and listening to classic rock 'n' roll."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Forbush "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."
