There is no Dr. like Dr. Forbes. She is passionate and caring and nurturing. That other clown, Dr. Balder has the worse bedside manner and I have asked to be keep away from him. Dr. Forbes knows her stuff. She is tough, but she wants us all to succeed.

Worse case senario Parris

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.
