SHC Patient, Jun 2015

Was very impressed with the service and doctor made me feel very very comfortable.

SHC Patient, Jun 2015

Exceptional doctor!

SHC Patient, Jun 2015

again, my concern is with the poor notes. I have only been there a few times but I don't feel a connection given the confusion as to why I am there. I am leaning towards finding another doctor, just not sure yet.

SHC Patient, May 2015

Dr. forest was very caring and helped me get the referrals I needed.

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

Came in for routine Blood pressure eval...BECAUSE Dr. Forest took time to sit down and discuss how I was feeling etc. she decided, after my answers, to have blood drawn and checked. Turned out I was severely anemic and was admitted to hospital next day. No telling what would have happened if Dr. Forest had not taken the time to talk (probe).

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

I wish the visit were longer.

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

I had to ask her if she had seen the pap smear results I sent weeks back. She said didn't. I asked her about the fact that I had an Enlarged Uterus on my ct scan and didn't bring up until I complained about it.

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

First time seeing new doctor. Dr. Forest was wonderful and put me at ease. I will request for her to be my ongoing primary care provider.

SHC Patient, May 2014

She had no concern for my concern. She rushed & I felt rushed.

SHC Patient, May 2014

Very lovable and nice!

SHC Patient, Jan 2014

She was very funny & helpful.

SHC Patient, Dec 2013

Very caring doctor!
