Patient Comments (1)
Benton, KY |
Dr.. Forte is an excellent physician who really takes time to listen to your complaints. He uses both prescriptions and homeopathic preparations to help heal. He concentrates on healing the whole person and not just responding to the immediate complaint. He listens to suggestions from the patient and takes these into account when healing a patient. He is unique and knowledgeable. I have been seeing him for over 15 years with no complaints except sometimes he is out of town a lot.
