Dr. Forstall and the entire staff are great. They are quick to communicate on the phone and my father and I have had very short wait times in the waiting room to be called into the treatment area. Always friendly, courteous and kind.

Dr. Forstall demonstrates patience and kindness. I have never seen an abrupt manner, or a sense that he wants to hurry out of the room. He keeps updated on the latest methods, and knows cardiology well. He could not be called a talkative person, but is always willing to answer questions. I did not find Dr. Forstall until my heart failure became severe. Because of his treatment, I feel as if the weight of chains has been lifted, and I can now live a more normal life. Hooray!!!!!
