I have been seeing Dr. Fort for 2 or 3 years now and I find her very professional, courtesy, and knowledgeable. The staff are great; if I ever call with a question I hear back right away.

Dr. Fort is an excellent physician. Her caring demeanor and in-depth knowledge of health care provide her with the ability to administer sensible and effective counsel. If her advice is taken, her solid commitment to helping her patients recognize the link between good health and conscious eating practices will result in positive outcomes. She is not quick to prescribe pharmaceutical medication because she recognizes the value of natural elements and good eating habits. I highly recommend her.
in Harpursville, NY |
I have multiple health issues, including food intolerance. She has her own diet protocol, which is one-size-fit-all. When I found out that my GI can't handle whole grain, so I eat white rice, and meat and goat milk, she wanted to have nothing to do with me. A competent doctor would say, If you can't tolerate some of the foods, fine. We'll help you gain strength, so that you will be able to get on this diet plan. No such wisdom for this doctor. wouldn't recommend her to anybody.
in Greene, NY |
l found Dr, Fort to be through and patient while taking my medical history. l did not feel rushed as l have with some doctors. l felt she was fully present with me and her kindness and intelligence were evident in her questions. l also had a service dog with me and she was accepting of him, even though he was young and it was his first time there. Dr. Fort is a vegetarian and feels strongly that is a healthy lifestyle, but did not react negatively when l told her l eat meat and dairy.

Dr. Fort focuses HEAVILY on diet, which is fine, but only a part of medicine. She then proceeded to tell me with certainty that there is as much of a link between milk and cancer as there is with cigarettes. As a critical thinker and trained scientist with a PhD I could not believe these words came from a provider's mouth. I could not in good faith return to her or recommend her to anyone.
