I just want to say the office staff really sucks except for a young lady by the name of Tianna, she is always helpful cheerful over the phone if she is having a bad day you will never know, whenever I call I hope and pray that I get her on the phone, she is a great worker and someone Forte Family practice should want to keep...Keep up the good work!

Looking for a Primary Care Physician, I got a referral from another Dr. where I am a patient.

I arrived at 11:15am for a 11:30 appointment. At 11:35 I was given a computer tablet to fill in my new patient information. It locked up and I finally got the information keyed in by 11:55.

Then I sat until 1:00 pm ... one hour and 45 minutes after I arrived ... where I finally gave up and told the desk there was no way I could consider Dr. Ng for a PCP.

Is he any good? How would I know? I think he went to lunch while I was in the waiting room.

I will also report back to the Dr. who made the reference so other people looking for a PCP should be forewarned.

Pros: Good TV in the waiting room

Cons: Waited until I finally gave up

I moved here about 3 years ago and have shopped around for a physician with whom I could relate to. I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Forte. She is courteous and compassionate. She enjoys her work and seems very competent. I had the priviledge of also meeting her Office Manager; Angela. She too was kind and considerate. She personally welcomed me to the Practice handed me a card and stated if I ever needed anything to call her, 3 weeks later I did!! She clarified my test and called me with a follow up appt. to discuss my results. What an office. A job well done. May GOD bless this office and anyone who enters it!!

Pros: NEW OFFICE/NEW OFFICE MANAGER

.

I am a native Las Vegan and when my Doctor retired I found it necessary to locate a new reliable Physician. I went to Forte Family Medical and had the pleasure to work with Susan Shields a PA under the very fine Dr. Dana Forte. From My first visit I received professional and top quality medical evaluations and care. All my questions were always answered in a professional and complete manner. I never felt that I was being rushed out of the office. I was always made to feel that my medical issues were their top priority. In emergencies Forte Family Medical has two locations that accept walk-ins. I have had great professional service from Dr. Gimpus and Dr Lerhner when using the walk-in service. I have never been disappointed with any of the Professional and through medical services at the Forte Family Medical. I would recommend Susan Shields to anyone looking for a caring, qualified medical professional. Dr. Gimpus and Dr. Lerhner are also excellent medical professionals. Give Forte Family Medical a try you can??t go wrong.

Pros: Every Doctor I have seen has been excellent

Cons: Front Office Staff was unorganized but this has been correct

.

Susan Shield, PA and Dana Forte, DO have provided quality medical care to me, my kids, and my mom for more than 7 years. I live in Henderson, but I drive the 20+ miles (one way) to Forte Family practice because the quality of care is unmatched. I am a native, and I remember the day when you went out-of-state for medical care if you had anything serious. My mom, Aggie Roberts, would go to no other practice when she became ill. Besides being great doctors, they are very compassionate people. The previous problems with the front office have been dealt with since moving to the new location. I highly recommend Susan Shields and Dana Forte!

Pros: Quality of Care

Cons: Wait Time

.

I have being going to Dr. Forte's office for about 2 1/2 years now. Everytime I go in the wait is at least 1 hour with a scheduled appointment. Dr, Forte herself is a self righteous women who thinks she knows it all. Her staff are rude, demeaning and down right arrogant. They don't care whether you are sick or not. I have a condition where one prescription can cost $10 and the one that Dr. Forte prescribed me cost $150. I wonder who is greasing her palms. When I am finally in the room with Dr. Forte 3 mins has been the longest time she has spent with me. I have timed it. Susan Shields is even worse. She is the meanest person I have ever met in the Medical field. No one in that office gives a hoot what your problem is or if you are dying. DO NOT SEE THIS DR, OR GO SEE ANY OTHER DR'S IN THIS OFFICE. Your life may depend on it. You would get better medical treatment in from the online dr's they now have.

Pros: NONE

Cons: Everything

I first went to see Dr. Pearson 2 weeks ago and she explained to me my b100d work that I brought in from another office. She had me get more tests and I went back last week. She explained it to me until I understood why I needed to take my medication. I am new to diabetes and thyroid problems and I did not get any information from my old doctor so I never took the medications. I will now!
I read the reviews and I was afraid to go there but I needed a second opinion. I will only see her and I will send my parents and friends in to. She is incredible not bad looking either.

Pros: Cathaline Pearson-best care I have ever gotten & best hours

Cons: front office not very friendly

.

I have had just about the worst experience with not only the front office staff, but also with the phone calls. When you go into Forte Family Practice they are the most rude people I have encountered. They don't even look up to say hello and they act like they hate there job. My appointment was for Noon and I signed in 5 min early; it took them over 30 min to call my name so I can get checked in, then I found out that I have to update my paper work which I already did in Jan. I filled it out again then it took another 30 min's to call my name. I finally got back to see Cathaline 1 hour after my scheduled appointment. She's not late it's the front office staff who is keeping her behind.
Also, trying to get through on the phone to make an appointment or to get any results is like squeezing blod from a turnup. Your on constant hold or they hang up on you. FORGET IT! I walk in now to make appointments or get what I need when Cathaline is working. That is the only way to get what you need.
I'm telling you if it wasn't for Cathaline who is a physician assistant, I would not go there. Dr. Forte has to hire some adults in her office and rethink about who she hires.

Cons: Office Staff and phone staff.

Dr. Forte WAS my wife's doctor, and I say WAS because one day, I needed to see a doctor and so I went (normally, I'm never sick and never need it...) She knew very well who my wife was - her client! - and threw herself at me nonetheless! And we are NOT talking innocent flirting here: we're talking all out indecent propositioning! This woman is the aggressive self-assured type who isn't used to a "no, thank you" and does not take being turned down very well, either! How shocking!

My family and I were seen here back in February 2008 when we had just moved into town. It is now September 2008, and our bills FINALLY were paid through our insurance a few weeks ago. Why you ask? Because the idiots at Forte Family Practice could not follow the easy instructions of completing names and birthdays correctly. Plus, they also managed to withold valuable, and very simple, information like "does the patient need any follow ups", so our insurance wasn't able to process the claims. In all honesty, they are the worst. It has been a serious headache, because for one, billing is never available at this family practice, they all seem to take very long vacations every month. Two, they NEVER call a person back, no matter how many messages are left. Three, I was never called back with my lab results, simple lab results, in which I had to pay a hefty price to get the lab work done in the first place. The doctor my husband saw was a dingbat, the doctor my children and I saw answered her cell phone in the middle of our visit to gripe about the cost of her floors being done. Yes, how professional. I would avoid this clinic, unless you are dying and have nowhere else to go. They just might get your information written down correctly in the proper boxes on the insurance claims, but I wouldn't count on it.

Pros: Can't think of any

Cons: Where do I begin

I went to the office for the first time and I was not impressed by the girl at the window. I was going to be seven minutes late because of a wreck so I called to let them know. The person who answered the phone was rude and nasty telling me that everyone else could get there thirty minutes early then so could I, and I would have to wait an additional 45 minutes if I wanted to be seen. [ just nasty about it] I went the next day to get some lab work and sat while fasting for about 40 minutes waiting to give my specimen only to be instructed rudely that I did not give her the proper lab sheet when I signed in [ shoot me I did not know to do this she never asked for it]. So setting aside the staff that belongs in a Sienfield episode along with the crazy resturant guy, the Doctor was cool, did what he needed to do and no complaints. The guy that took my specimen was very patient and professional. If you can get by the Gestapo at the window then all is good.

MY FAMILY HAS BEEN GOING TO FORTE FAMILY PRACTICE SINCE WE MOVED TO LAS VEGAS ALMOST TWO YEARS AGO. YOU MAY HAVE TO WAIT A LITTLE WHILE OR GET ON PUT ON HOLD WHEN YOU CALL BUT THAT IS BECAUSE THEY ARE SO BUSY BUT ONCE YOU MAKE IT BACK TO THE EXAMINING ROOMS THE CARE IS UNBEATABLE. THE DOCTORS AND NURSES ARE ALL SO CARING AND PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT YOU HAVE TO SAY. THEY REALLY LISTEN AND MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE YOUR THE ONLY ONE IN THE WORLD THAT MATTERS. I COULDN'T ASK FOR BETTER CARE FOR MYSELF, HUSBAND OR 17 YEAR OLD. THEY DON'T JUST TREAT YOU THEY REALLY CARE AND GO THE EXTRA MILE.

Cons: NONE

It surprises me that they are not sued into oblivion. Do not go here unless you want to be treated rudely by literally the most incompetent and inept and possible stupid unprofessional people.
You will not receive a good quality of care at this sham of a medical practice.

Pros: I didn't die after being treated there.

Cons: Unacceptable wait times, Incompetent Staff, Quantity over Quality Mentality

.

To say the office staff is incompetent is an understatement. They lack professionalism by any definition of the word. They are terribly unorganized, rude, unsympathetic, lazy, and generally unintelligent. I have spent so much time just waiting in that office for a SCHEDULED appointment. I can understand a wait, but let's get real people! For example, my latest visit included a 3 hour wait just to get a prescription refilled!

The only reason I choose to go back is because of Dr. Forte and Susan Shields. These practitioners are wonderful. Intelligent, understanding, compassionate, and will take time to figure out how to properly dx your condition.

The terrible part is when they tell you to go for tests, because you do end up picking up the results yourself. The staff, of course, couldn't be expected to call you to schedule a follow up appointment if something was "wrong" with the results. The staff can't even FIND the test results half the time! I had an ultrasound done and had previously scheduled a follow-up just so I'd make sure to get results. I waited 1.5 hour (quick day!) to see the dr. only to have her be unable to tell me results because...guess what?...the office staff was unable to find the test results and put them in my folder! It took me over 4 weeks to get the results!

I wish the practice would hire competent office staff or wish that Dr. Forte and Susan would move to a new practice where the staff can actually run an office. I would be embarrassed to have such staff represent me as a physician. The dr's are aware of the problems with the staff, and they will comment to that effect. "Oh, just keep calling back because they won't call you" or "They're a little unorganized up front...". They are obviously aware of the problem...now they just need to DO something about it.

BTW, I usually go to the Rainbow/Tropicana location. Not sure if the Cheyenne location is the same or better.

Cons: Horrible staff, long waits, lack of organization and professionalism

Worst office staff I have ever dealt with. Wait until you call!! You'll probably get put on hold many times before you talk to someone. Don't try to get a prescription refilled!! They never return phone calls.

I by chance tried this family pratice and fell in love with the way I was treated by Dr. Nardell. However, I quit going to this pratice because of the HORRIBLE staff and the amount of time you'd have to wait to see your doctor even with an appt. EVERYTIME I went to see my doctor I had to wait over a hour. I am a working woman who makes appointments for a reason. I only have so much time on my lunch break from work, and actualy got written up at work because I was at my appointment for 2 and a half hours. To me that is totally unacceptable. They won't refill your prescription with out making an appointment to come in and see them. They sure do like to make sure thye can bill you for anything and everything. And your phone calls never get returned. I am so glad Dr. Nardell has moved on to bigger and better places. I wouldn't reccommend this place to my worst enemy.

I have been goin to Dr. Forte's office since Dr. Rodney Gong retired. They diagnosed some problems that other doctors couldn't. The office people are horrible. Some are rude and just out right indifferent. Billing errors are abundant. Especially since the billing is handled out of the Rainbow office. Double charged my wife. Cannot update insurance info. Lost my wife's medical test results (later "found" them). Again, I have no complaints about the medical staff. Dr. Forte needs to clean house of her office staff.

I have been seeing Dr. Dana Forta for over 4 years. Sorry to say that it took me so long to find such a wonderfull caring Dr. She is what i call a real Dr. not a HMO how fast can she get you in and get you out of the office. She listens to what you have to say and to you're question. Take time with you and makes sure you understand and get the best care.
Some time it's a wait getting in to she her but well worth it.
Her family must be very proud of her. And her Mom. "Job well done. "

Pros: Skilled, Caring care.

Cons: nothing

I am one of Dana Forte D.O.'s first patients. Her office staff , which started off great, has become increasingly incompetent and rude.

Receptionists keep you on hold and treat you like an inconvenience. Lab tests- didn't receive calls back after. Had to make appointments for results. Couldn't get prescription refills - in fact the pharmacy assistant joked about *that* office- I had to physically go in for refills many times. I can go on and on with stories of how BAD the office is.

One week a couple years ago Dr. Forte's schedule was full so I took an appt. with Dr. Nardell. He is a skilled MD. Knowledgeable, kind, careful, listens well, answers questions and shows up when you need him.

Recently I could not get ahold of Dr. Nardell post surgery (which he assisted). He didn't get messages I left. Had to call after hours when the phones were "on service". He helped me right away once he KNEW I needed help. Not his fault. It was that office staff ... again.

Dr. Nardell did something about it. I will not be back to Forte Family Practice.

Cons: Office staff. Waiting time always over an hour, often two. Can't contact anyone for test results or for rx refills w/o appointment. Dr. Nardell has moved.

.

Dr. Forte is unbeliveably the best doctor in Las Vegas. She is caring and compassionate, always honest
with her patients. She is dedicated to her patients and is always willing to listen. She does not rush you in and out in fact each patient feels like they are the only one she has. This is hard to believe in this day and age when everyone is so rushed. Her nurses are outstanding and if you are lucky you will get Shelly my favorite. I trust Dr. Forte so much that she is the person in my living will that would decide if I live or die. I am 58 years old and only wish she was my physician 40 years ago. I work in the public and have sent complete strangers to her. Many have come back and thanked me. One woman said Dr. Forte saved her husbands life in the office when he was having a heart attack. I wish I had a dollar for all of the patients she has that are in love with Dr. Forte!!! If she can't help with your problem she will find someone who can.
The other doctors in her practice are also,outstanding, look who their leader is. Please for your own health and peace of mind try Forte Family Practice.

Pros: Best medical care possible.

Cons: good things are worth waiting for

.

Always wait more than hour even with an appointment. Office staff and nurses are terrible. I've waited over 3 weeks for a call for my lab results. They are quick to schedule an follow-up office visit and are very quick/efficient when billing your insurance company. That's all that they must care about. I just filed a complaint with the B B B. The doctor's there are competent but the customer service is not acceptable, thus the 2 star rating. Follow-suit and file a complaint, maybe they will wake up and start treating us like patients and not like insurance claims.

Dr. Nardell is the best. I moved here from NY and the first Dr. I had was a true quack. He gave up his practice to sell real estate. Dr. N was referred to me by my dentist. He is understanding and very concerned about you as a person and a patient. He takes the time to explain just what is going on, I am saddened to find out he has left Forte Family Practice and I only hope he is starting up his own practice here in town.

I'm a Senior Citizen and I would like to tell Las Vegas how lucky we are to have a Doctor like Dr. Nardell. I was reommended to see Dr. Nardell by a friend of mine since I have been a smoker all my life and that Dr. Nardell was a kind, considerate, understanding, polite and honest. I met with Dr. Nardell a month ago and I have never met a Doctor who knew what he was talkling about and made me feel very much alive. I'm doing so much better now he has me on the right medications, we have done many tests and everything is working just fine and I feel great. Thank You Dr. Nardell!!!

I have just found a new Doctor in Las Vegas. His name is Dr. Dominic Nardell of the Forte Medical Practice in Summerlin. Dr. Nardell is the best Doctor I have ever met. He takes time to understand you and to explain to you what is going on. He has great respect for you and is kind, gentle, polite and caring. He is fantastic and terrific as a man. He can take care of me any day!!!!

Pros: Dr. Nardell is caring, kind, terrific and loving.

Cons: The office staff is the worst on earth and I suggest to Dr. Forte she fire all men and women on the office staff. The nursing staff is great. If wasn't for Dr. Nardell I would leave Forte Family Pr

I was visiting Las Vegas on vacation in early July 2006. I became very ill and I was taken to the ER at Mountain View Hospital in Las Vegas, NV. I met the the most wonderful Doctor in my life and that was Dr. Nardell. He came in the room talked to me and spent over 30 minutes with me and soon I was being addmitted to the hospital. I spent four days in the hospital and
under the care of Dr. Nardell. "What a man" and "What a Doctor". He was very respectful to me, understood me and what I was going through, he saw me every day and he was just terrific.

I only wish that I lived in Las Vegas and that I could see Doctor Nardell all the time. I will tell you that my whole family would see Dr. Nardell and he would be our family Doctor. The people of Las Vegas should be aware that they have among them one of the most professional Doctors I have ever met, highly trained and skilled in family medicine.

When I return to Las Vegas on future vacations or visits I will make it a point to visit Dr. Nardell and to have see me. He is fantastic and once again "What a man"!!!!!!!

I can't believe that it has taken me years to find a Doctor like Dr. Nardell. He makes me feel good when I'm with him and he takes his time. He doesn't rush when something has to be done right away and he takes time to explain everything that is happening. Besides being a very good Doctor he is young, good looking, well dressed and to me well all I can say is WOW! If you need a Doctor that will understand you then I strongly recommend Dr. Nardell in Las Vegas.

Dr Dominick Nardell is the most caring doctor in the world. He is so easy to talk to and is also very easy on the eyes! He never rushes me like many other doctors do and he always explains what's going on in a way that is easy to understand. I just LOVE him. It 's like he's part of my family...

I met Dr. Nardell at Mountain View Hospital in October 2005. I knew at once he was going to be my Doctor. Im 56 yr old male and I have never in my life met a man like Dr. Nardell. He is the most loving, caring, honest Doctor I have ever met. He makes me feel so good and understands me and he is in process of saving my life at this time. Besides my father who I have loved so much in my life, Dr. Nardell is the second man that I love. I'm very proud to tell the world how I feel about this man. He is the greatest.

Dr. Nardell is great!!, but everyone else is right about the office staff, I had a bad MRI of my brain and no one ever called me to tell me. The lady PA is horrible, she is rude and needs more education in her job.

Pros: Dr. Nardell

The doctors at Forte Family Practice are all very excellent and I highly recommend them. I have seen Dr. Nardell and Dr. Sheilds, both are fantastic. I am considering finding another physician because of the rudeness of the office staff. I have been calling for over a week for test results and I have never been called back. I have been nothing but polite to these people. I have been left on hold for over 20 minutes, told I could not have an appointment even though I was in pain, because the day I wanted is "only for sick people." I have been hung up on several times and was yelled at the second time I called for my results. I have complained to the office manager who has done NOTHING and does not return my calls. In the office, people are rude and treat all patients like an inconvinience.

Not meaning he's crazy, it's a poker term for "THE BEST". I was wiped out in Katrina and moved away from the best doctor I'd ever had in Stephen McDavid, but I think Dr. Nardell is in the same league!

Several friends recommended Dr. Forte and Dr. Nardell to my family. Each friend said both doctors were excellent, but that the front office was disorganized and unfriendly. When my husband and I went, we discovered that to be correct. The doctors could not have been better or more caring, but the front office did not care if we lived or died. That needs to be corrected.
