in Sumter, SC |
I made six trips to SSI, two hours one way and I saw Dr. Forrest one time for a total of about 5 minutes. The other five trips I saw a PA. The PA's were nice and took up time with me, but I felt like I needed to see and doctor and let him explain the problem. All they did little to help my back pain. I was very disappointed. I had high hopes based on their commercials. I don't know if another doctor there would have been able to help me or not, but I will not go back to Dr. Forrest.

Dr. Forrest is completely inept and has the complete inability to listen to his patients. He actually told me to stop physical therapy since in his words people don't do physical therapy for More than a couple of months. He failed to properly develop a treatment plan and he just wanted to run expensive tests to get insurance money when he already had them from my tests a year ago. The treatment plan I was on was working great but he just wants money. Totally unethical.
