Ratings for Dr. James W. Forsen
I credit Dr. Forsen with saving my child's life. She was floating around for 3 months in the health care system going from Dr. to Dr. undiagnosed. He recognized a rare disease that 1 in 1 million kids get and that he had only see 1 time before in 30 years. We would have taken the wrong course of treatment otherwise, with a disease that can kill children in 6 months. I can't give him enough kudos.
Dr. Forsen is great. He explains things and asks to be sure whether I have questions, and is good at interacting with my two year old in an attempt to ease his fears. His nurse, Nelly, is nice and helpful, but the rest of the office staff is ok at best. Another patient had an issue upon their arrival when I was there last and the front desk staff was pretty rude to her.
I am very suprised for the bad rating too. Dr. Forsen is a wonderfull doctor. Very kid friendly, calm, knowledgable, thorough, caring ( he called to check on my son multiple times). We have visited his office multiple times and he never failed to give us all his attention and plenty of time. I highly recommend this excelent MD.
Dr. Forsen is a wonderful doctor. He is friendly and does a very good job of calming my little one who has Down syndrome. He has a calm, laid-back demeanor, which is what I think the others are mistaking for arrogance. He is thorough in his examination and explains my son's diagnosis in an easily understood manner every time we visit. We have been seeing him for 6 years now and have never had a bad experience. I highly recommend him for both children with and without special needs.
