The following are reviews from patients of Dr. Forest.
– John E.
“Good experience. Dr. Forest was great. I had x-rays, then an injection in my hand. I was seen after a short delay. My finger improved, but not enough. I'll likely need surgery to improve more.”
– Bob B.
“Dr. Forest was personable and knows her trade. I have nothing but positive things to say, and I appreciate the treatment she provided. I needed an injection today and no one looks forward to that, Dr. Forest had a great way of making me feel at ease, and "important". I felt like I had her 100% attention. I hope I don't have to go back, but I wouldn't hesitate if I needed to.”

“I had shoulder replacement surgery. The surgery was performed by Dr. Forest and I would not have believed it could go so well. She talked with me about what to expect and answered all of my questions. The discomfort was minimal and the recovery is progressing far better than expected. I would definitely recommend Dr. Forest to anyone who is contemplating shoulder, arm or hand surgery. Now, I am ready to get on with my life. Thank you Vero Orthopaedics and Dr. Forest.”

“This is my second physician at VOVN and like Dr. Peden, Dr. Forest provided top notch care, but as important to me, was patient and listened to any question I had and no matter how ridiculous patiently answered them all. Dr. Forest was clear on the procedure and even worked with my other surgeon to do her procedure at the same time as my knee surgery so I would not need a second surgery appointment, anesthesia etc.”
