Patient Comments (2)
Tucson, AZ |
Dr. Forrer lacks empathy. His directions are not clear and he provides false information. He puts patients in danger by stopping medications cold turkey when it can cause serious side effects. His staff is verbally abusive, yells at patients and talks about problems with Dr. Forrer's practice in front of patients, including legal problems. It is hard to get a hold of anyone at the office as they do not answer the phone or make call backs.

His tone of voice was hostile and adversarial during medical/health history questioning. While testing my reflexes he became so harsh I classify it as abusive. His excuse for not performing the EMG test, the only reason I made the appointment, alternated between saying I was in too much pain and saying your nerve damage isn't bad enough to warrant this test, your just having anxiety. When I tell most patients it's all in their head they normally don't come back.
