Drove over 100 miles just for him to tell us he couldn't read X-rays that were sent and we need to come back with X-rays on discs in another month. Total waste of Time. The whole thing was rushed. Dr. Ran out of the room so fast I didn't get to ask any questions. Won't be back.

He doesn't take time with his patients. It all feels extremely rushed. And after waiting months for an appointment just to only have 5 mins with face to face time with the Dr, unacceptable- being as he never looks up from his laptop screen. Took my son for a second opinion and he needs surgery after Dr forest said it all is "completely normal". However, his staff his top notch!

Dr. Forest completed my sons hypospadias repair. He made me feel at ease with his display of confidence in the repair and minimal complications. His staff and nurse truly put me at ease by answering all the questions I had and making sure I knew that there was no silly question. After hearing of all the horror stories that are associated with the hypospadias repair, I could not have asked for a better team for my son’s care preoperatively and post operatively .

Dr. Forest has been exceptional in treating me! I had a Staghorn in my left kidney that was restricting its functionality. Dr. Forest clearly explained my options and after weighing the pros and cons, I chose to remove it. He was professional, pleasant, always smiling, and very thorough.

Practice is extremely unprofessional. I was referred by my g.p. because of persistent cystitis. On my first visit I was not asked to give a urine specimen. I had to ask for it. They give you a little plastic cup with NO CAP. You are told to put the cup on the shelf, in front of the lab tech.'s computer. Samples are open and available to anyone walking down the hall where the bathroom is located. When they brought me to the lab, TWO other urine samples on a tray with NO CAPS. UNSANITARY!

Had a great experience with Dr Forest. Very thorough with his explanation of my surgery and possible complications. Visited every day when I was in the hospital, even before my surgery when I had another medical condition. He even came on his days off to check on me. my surgery went extremely well and he was able to save my entire kidney. And my incisions healed perfectly. Office visits usually go pretty quickly for a specialist visit.

Met Dr Forest in ER Saturday morning for the first time.Was in need of removing a 10 mm kidney stone. Explained to me my options and because of the blockage and size he performed the procedure on Sunday morning,was home by that afternoon. Very pleased with my new found doctor.
