What People Say About Dr. Wade Fornander, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Dr Fornander is knowledgable and caring. He shows compassion and respect. He understands what I want and expect concerning my health, letting me make decisions according to my beliefs. He does not order unnecessary tests or referrals. Does not seem rushed, and addresses important issues in health care. When he moved to a new office, I was given plenty of notice, and was able to get med refills to last until I could get in to see him. He is now on the faculty at the residency.

I was with Dr. Fornander for one year. During that time, I had a few visits to his office and was overall pleased with the care that I received. I recently received a letter stating that he was moving practices without any prior warning. Upon calling his new practice, I was informed that he was not accepting all of his previous patients. Dr. Fornander did not want to write one last prescription so I would not be without medication until I could find a new PCP. Thanks Dr. Fornander!
