Our experience with Dr Fornefeld and his staff was exceptional! His staff was very helpful and very kind. We highly recommend this team!

I never got to see the doctor as I had been waiting for an hour and a half and had to leave due to other obligations. My wait time would have been 45 minutes, which is still unacceptable, but the office manager mistakenly gave my appt. to another woman. There was another patient that had to cancel his appt. that day also due to the wait time. I believe the office is in need of a competent office manager. I will not be back.

I brought my elderly mom for an exam. Although the huge office complex was deserted except for various staff members, we were kept waiting for an absurd amount of time, first to be seen, then for the the doctor to appear after a different staffer had run through basic tests. Overall we were there for 2.5 hours, which is ridiculous and careless. Dr. Fornefeld was professional but distant. My mother still can't read well, so I have to have her rechecked by a different doc. I would not go back.
