I cannot say enough kind words for Dr. Forrest. Since day one about 2 years ago she has been on top of everything!! She is the kindest ever-we have driven from Georgia just to have her as our doctor because she is this amazing!! We will continue to see her all the time no matter where we live because when one finds such an amazing doctor, you can't just switch to someone else! She knows how to talk to parents and children!! I love that she takes her time and explains everything!!

I am glad Dr. Emily explained my ex-wife the importance of communication for the benefit of our child. It is a difficult time with the mix of emotions. However, we both play an equally important part on the child's life. Each, Father and Mother have a specific role that when it is balanced will bring the best results for the child. It is obvious how the child shows the same kind of affection for both. We are in agreement that breaking the parent-child relationship will not bring any good results for the child.

Dr. Forrest has a great talent for sharing important medical information in a practical life application way. She explains things to my daughter in a relatable way and still hold her accountable. Her expertise as a Dr. and mother make for a perfect combination to provide the highest quality of care.

Dr. Forrest is beyond amazing!! We have been seeing her for almost 2 years and she has always been a pleasure to see! She is extremely knowledgeable as well as involved and such a pleasure! She takes the time to know about schools and the medical aspects as well, which in my book having a school-aged special needs child is amazing! This means that not only is Dr. Forrest a doctor but she takes pleasure in knowing about and how she can her patients outside of the clinic!! We do not live in the area and she has always been willing to provide any records for the school or any of the therapists my boys needed. Anytime I needed anything the office is always willing to help which is great considering they have a lot of patients. It has just been such a pleasure with Dr. Emily Forrest that we have driven from miles away for each visit and will continue to see Dr. Forrest!

Dr. Forrest is amazing at what she does. She is always willing to sit and listen, answer any questions thoroughly, takes the time to talk with our daughter and explain things to her so that she can understand. She is open, friendly, and creates a very comfortable environment that feels more like a conversation. This allows everyone to be at ease and help us, as parents, know she has our child's best interest at heart.
