Dr Forbs did a good job in surgery but her bedside manner it's cold and quick rough and to the point her staff is the same way no compassion getting through on the phone to make an appointment I just tried almost 30 minute on hold very difficult to get a timely appointment wish I could switch doctors
No Joke, that's what they call me....Dr. Forbes did an outstanding job on my gastric bypass. Can't say enough good things about her. I just happen to be one of those paitents that "could happen" happens to.... But all in all, I lost 184 lbs, look and feel great and would do it again in a NY minute. To bad I moved down south, I lost a great Doctor.
