Dr. Forfia is tops in his field and tops in my opinion. Every contact I had with him was professional and warm. His office functioned so well and responded to my needs. His ease with patients and their families is unusual as he explained everything I should expect, responded to each and every question, and was always available when I needed him. Fortunately he has assembled an excellent team at Temple University Hospital offering hope to many who have had no hope in the past.

Brilliant physician! My father came to Dr. Forfia with a mixed and confused diagnosis. Dr. Forfia spent significant time with him, gained a true understanding of his condition and explained in simple terms what he felt was going on. He showed true compassion and care for an elderly man who was scared and unhappy because he couldn't walk 5 steps without feeling out of breath. With Dr. Forfia's medical plan, my father saw the first improvement in his symptoms in years and is finally smiling again.
