In the past I have recommended Dr. Forrest to my friends and colleagues. However, lately I have stopped doing so because it is becoming increasingly difficult to get appointments.

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.
