Dr. Forrester is very thorough and extremely competent. Forrester has picked up the phone to call me to follow up dozens of times and, most remarkably, when she thought a specialist left me hanging, she phoned him and read him the riot act. She got results. She believes that a doctor should be there to help and should have a plan of action. She doesn't always communicate that well, and sometimes she is busy typing what you are saying into the record on her computer, but you will not find a better doctor. If you want somebody to feel warm and fuzzy with, go elsewhere, because Dr. Forrester is serious about doing everything she can for her patients. If that means she has squeezed you in to help with your most urgent problem and that you will have to come back for a second problem, perhaps she -- or the staff -- should have told you that she squeezed you in and has a limited time. But it's a plan of action. She is a perfectionist at being a doctor, and over the 10 years or so I have been her patient, I have seen her improve her bedside manner skills too. She knows what's important in my life. When I ran into her and her husband, she introduced me with exactly the salient details from my life I would want people to know, my most creative endeavors. I feel appreciated by her. If you want 25 eye contact seconds per minute and a hug when you arrive or even when you get bad news, then you need another doctor. Myself, I have fired doctors who are all touchy-feely. I want competence and the facts.

Just an overall disappointing and frustrating experience. Her bedside manner was extremely rude, and she made me feel like I was wasting her time. I will be looking for another primary care doctor.
