Dr. Forrester is a phenomenal physician! He is an incredible listener and can then connect what you’re saying you experience with test results and his medical knowledge and discover what is helpful for you that other doctors were unable to figure out. Under Dr. Forrester’s care, we discovered what was causing my high and erratic blood pressure (that had been medicated for 17 years under other doctors care) and now I’m able to manage my BP naturally and knowledgeably without medication.
