Dr. Forster is not only a seasoned professional with years of expertise in complex psychiatric diagnosis, but demonstrates compassion and access to this concerned family member on several occasions. I remember one night though, a different hospital location, my loved one entered an emergency admission. I called their office at closing hours to get medication list. How surprised and thankful, that evening, Dr. Forster reached out with support, making a scary circumstance a little better. Caring!

Dr Peter Forster is the best. He worked with me for about 7 years. I was struggling with multiple issues when we first started working together and would sometimes forget about appointments. Dr Forster worried about my well being when I didn't show up as scheduled and he would personally check on me at my house to make sure I was ok. He went above and beyond because he is a kind person and truly cares about his patients. I got sober while working with Dr Forster and he was incredibly professiona

Dr. Forster is amazing. I was down in the dumps for months and finally knew I needed help. When I reached out to him, he promptly established me as a new patient and we started working together right away. He's super tech saavy, extremely responsive and works around my schedule. Thanks to him, I'm back to 100%. Thanks Dr. Forster!

Dr. Forster cared for my daughter while she was going through the worst time in her life. I was at an absolute loss - I did not know what she needed or if I could even provide it. My fear was that she would end up seriously hurting herself or worse. Dr. Forster took her on and her life changed drastically. He made her his partner in her recovery. When she would skip appointments he followed up and made sure she would be at the next one. I do not overstate when I say he is the best psychiatrist
