    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.
