Ratings for Dr. Eleanor Melissa Forbes
She’s the best! She’s compassionate, understanding & patient. Is quick to refer to a specialist if required. Too bad Karen isn’t on the front desk all the time as it was an excellent job fit. Come to see Dr Forbes often but the front desk folks are always changing. Don’t know any of them.
Dr. Forbes has been my doctor for over 10 years now. I consider myself incredibly fortunate to have the level of care, professionalism, well thought and balanced medical direction and compassion that Dr.Forbes provides. After a serious workplace injury occurred I have been to many specialists, surgeons and various medical professionals in relation to my ongoing rehabilitation. The one constant through this very difficult time has been both the care, integrity and advocacy through Dr Forbes. There must also be a nod made to the wonderful staff at Spring Valley Health right from entering into the office . If you are fortunate enough to have this doctor hold on tight , they are far and few between.
Dr. Forbes has been my and my daughter's doctor since 2010. She is remarkably competent, empathetic, extremely respectful and very well informed. I trust her judgement and advice. She has referred me to excellent specialists, one of whom remarked how highly thought of she is by her colleagues. She is an excellent doctor, who never rushes me and always listens to what I have to say. I trust her with our health. Also, the clinic staff are outstanding. We recently moved to Ottawa and are delighted that we can keep our doctor in Almonte. She is simply the best!
Dr Forbes is easily one of the most caring, genuine, down to earth professionals I have ever met. In no way is she "rude" or "cocky".. She has been my doctor for approximately 5 years and has always been so patient and understanding. I'm very grateful for her l!
Dr. Forbes has been my doctor for the past 5 years. When I needed surgery but the wait list was almost 1 year, she did some digging and found a surgeon that could take care of me in less than 2 mos. She even sent me for physio to relieve the pain pre-surgery. Dr. Forbes has routinely referred me to the very best specialists in their field when warranted. She takes my complaints seriously and always, without exception, treats me with respect and dignity. I have had 3 other physicians tell me how lucky I was to have her as my primary care physician, high praise indeed from her peers.
