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."

Patient Comments (2)
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!
Thanks so much for these very kind words!

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.
Thanks so much for these very kind words!
