Five Stars

Professional but always thoughtful and caring and willing to allow patient time to talk when that is what is needed. In the case of a seriously ill patient admitted to the emergency room, even though he was "off duty", Dr.Forbes was willing to talk with his patient on the telephone then came to the emergency room as soon as he was able to do so.
