Dr. Forster is absolutely amazing. He quickly identified and preformed surgery to pull out an inch and a half thorn that had broken off and was layinging up against my knuckle and a tendon. I can not say enough great things about him and his staff at the Surgery Center. Thank You Doctor Forester !!!!

Very friendly and helpful staff. Dr. Forster is very thorough, takes time to explain what to expect, answers all questions thoroughly, and never seems rushed, and genuinely cares. Great surgeon, all went as he explained, and minimal scarring.
