We have never waited long after checking in. Time is valuable to me. I feel he is very honest and cares about my health. He and his PA Elaine take time to explain why I feel the way I do with my pacemaker.

Dr. Forstall is a true compassionate, brilliant Cardiologist. I recently made a submittal to the VA for cardio vascular issues and requested my medical records from Peter's files. Upon reading what he has done on my behalf, inside my body, arteries and heart is not only amazing, but life saving. He and his staff have my highest recommendation. Thank You Peter

Dr. Forstall is currently my cardiologist. His approach to treating me is very commendable. He only orders tests that are medically necessary for the follow-up of my A-Fib diagnosis. When I visit him at this office he always allows time for me to ask questions as they relate to the treatment of my condition. Imagine me saying - "I enjoy visiting a physician's office." Well, in this case it is so true. Dr. Forstall makes me feel very comfortable and in my deck of cards, he is an "ACE." He's a good man!
