Ratings for Dr. Richard J. Forsyth
Completely dismissive. Assumes any health problems are because you are eating poorly. Doesn't understand when you explain you don't have the time/energy to exercise an hour every day when you are already working 12 hour days. This is the worst primary care doctor I've seen. I switched to another practice after two visits with this doctor.
I have visited this dr for the last time. Whole foods are not helping my back pain. My split lip on Pe was not even addressed. My total cholesteral was 127 and yet Dr. Still wanted to Rx a statin. My back is hurting . I am a landscaper and this guy said I should eat better.
Started seeing this person bc 1 of my coworkers used him, but have never been so dissatisfied with any Dr. in my LIFE. Found him arrogant & behind schedule on EVERY occasion (never saw for normal checkups, only when very ill.) Being on hold for 10-15 minutes before even speaking to receptionist is normal. Then, once you GET an appointment, be prepared to wait 45-60 min. before being taken to an exam room, then another 15-20 before he comes in, & then he only spends about 5 minutes talking to you before running out (once he actually said he was late for tennis!)REALLY this is the worst example of HMO-Driven mass-healthcare I have ever seen. & He is quick to script you an Rx w/o even considering any other options. I asked for a referral for a chiropractor to deal with my neck and back pain issues and insomnia, instead of a referral, he simply said, "I think those people are quacks." & handed me two Rx scripts. I don't care if you believe it works or not! It works for ME! Never AGAIN!
