The most brilliant and caring man!!!!!!
Santa Monica, CA |
The worst experience ever with Dr Forman
in Los Angeles, CA |
Dr. Forman has to be one of the most sought after and busiest doctor's at COH, yet when you're there with him, it's as though he has all the time in the world to spend with you. You may wait awhile to see him, but that's because he's spending all the time needed by others with them. I cannot recommend him, and the staff at City of Hope enough, they're all terrific.
