Patient Comments (2)
Dr. Forman did a great job or correcting a very stubborn bunion and repairing my torn plantar plate tendons. I had my surgery at the Newport Surgicenter. Both Dr. Forman and the center's staff were friendly, safe and competent. Dr. Forman does make slightly larger incisions but he can be trusted to do a sound surgical procedure.

Dr. Scott Forman has been my orthopedic doctor for several years. I trust him whole-heartedly. He's done surgeries on both shoulders and on my foot, and I've seen him for other injuries. (I guess I'm pretty accident prone.) He, his assistant Maria, and the staff are always caring, always professional, and very accommodating. I often refer to this doctor, because he's the best.
