I have seen many neurologists and headache specialists for a chronic condition. I was surprised how well my experience at my first visit was since I saw his low ratings. However the next time around I see it - he has a poor bedside manner and is not compassionate. You might think that he could understand people are in chronic pain but instead he is unapologetic and sharp, especially when running behind schedule. I will probably not go back for my follow up.

Dr Forner is one of the most compitant doctors I have ever seen. He goes straight to the point and has a plan to work every aspect of a situation. I have great confidence in his work and his skills. He really does care about his patients.
in South Lake Tahoe, CA |
Dr Forner has a very compassionate nature, and is very reassuring. He seems very knowledgeable and explains things so you understand. If you have questions, he takes the time to answer and that you understand fully. His staff is nice and friendly.
