Specialties

Dr. Gene D Forrester has the following 2 specialties

  • Nephrology

    A nephrologist is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the kidneys or renal system.
    A nephrologist will determine through urine analysis, blood test, X-ray, sonogram, or kidney biopsy how well the kidneys are functioning and will then prescribe a special diet and exercise program, medication or dialysis - a process by which a machine filters the blood when the kidney is no longer capable of doing so.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

I met Dr. Forrester when I was in the Hospital for a stroke. He is the BEST Doctor I have ever had. Patient, thoughtful. His diagnosis was right on. For years I had been taking a variety of meds - He was the first who saId "we are not just trat the symptoms but the cause". He is a great man.!!! A good man! The best best part of of the having a stroke was being released to his extended care. God Bless Him!!!

Diagnosis after many repeated failures by previous doctors

Dr. Forrester is, no doubt, the very best doctor I have ever been treated by. For 8 yrs I had been seen by many doctors who were unable to diagnose my condition prior to my meeting Dr. Forrester. I was finally divinely guided into the hands of this very wise doctor who actually took the time to read the medical records I brought him that first visit. He diagnosed me after proper testing, began treating me in 2003, thus saving my life. I do wish Dr. Forrester could be all my doctors, as he is so humble, patient, kind, intelligent and the best listener I've ever met. Never has a doctor spent the time with me that Dr. Forester spends, as he patiently explains what I need to hear, until I 'get it'. His staff is also spectacular and the wait time is minuscule.
