Doctors are fine, but their office staff is difficult, disinterested and condescending. They need to do a clean sweep of whoever are the people who answer the phone there. It's a mess. I've cancelled two appointments because I've changed my mind while dealing with them. Forte practice, you're losing business over this staff!!
Forte Family Practice has been my PCP for over a decade. The physicians and staff are top notch. Great practice!
Not a great office – Everyone keeps saying that when President Obama's health care plan goes into effect that the level of care will go way down. Well Dr Forte is way ahead of the game!!! I am reading these negative reviews and agreeing with so much. I never really studied my bills, perhaps I should. They are a HUGE practice and personalized care just isn't going to happen here any more than it would in a free clinic, and trust me they are far from free. Susan Shields, PA-C, and Michelle Dunne, APN-C, were very nice and took the time I needed. The only reason I had to schedule with them was because my Dr, Dana Forte, couldnt give me my test results for a month or so. Her web sight starts by saying that she started her practice to be a hometown practice with personalized care where they knew everyone's name. Nope. They don't even return phone calls. You need to call in if you need an rx refilled, and then MAYBE days later you can go in and pick up your hand written rx. Big office, low tech! Huge office staff, and I dont think the right hand has any idea what the left hand is doing. The office manager, Angela is condoscending and rude, with info about herself thrown in. I could care less how long she has been there, where she has worked in the past, or how much she has organized the office in the past 3 years. If this is organization, I hate to see how it used to be! I realized just how bad things where when I went in complaining about deep lower abdominal (pelvic) pain, which she thought may be muscular. She sent me to physical therapy which was wonderful, but it wasnt helping. The physical therapist suggested perhaps an MRI, and Dr Forte said the same. She told me she was ordering a lower back and pelvic MRI. When I went for the results, she had only ordered lower back. Wonderful. Now I have to go for a Cat-scan. I wanted some explaination but I "just missed" Dr.Forte (how convenient) and the office manager left me sitting there until I finally left. I called and left 2 messages for her (this was over 2 weeks ago) and today I finally got to talk to her for what it was worth. NOTHING! So now I am off to a specialist. I am not sure I trust who they are refering me to. I will have to do some investigating. Choose this practice, especially the Dr that put her name on it, at your own risk. Perhaps you will be lucky!
What a crook – No stars, Dana forte is a crook. She bills your insurance for service that is not performed. People like her is the reason the cost of health insurance is so high.
Finding a New Doctor – While Dr. Forte may be good, but it does not make up for her awful staff. I have had my file lost on two occasions, they can't find lab orders, and give you incorrect information. The wait time for an appointment has never been less than 1 hour, even with the first appointment of the day. I have had wrong perscriptions written, that were luckily caught by the pharmacy. They also require you to come in for an office visit (and pay an additional co-pay) just to find out that lab work and test results are normal. I would not recommend her or this office to anyone.
Dr Forte is a Doctor who can relate to all patients – I have been a patient of Dr Forte for many years. She is not only compassionate but really understands what a woman goes through medically. Not only does she treat my everyday medical issues but also takes care of my entire family. Her staff gets busy and overwhelmed but she wants to hear any negative feedback a patient has. She strives on making her practice successful and truly cares about her patients. I would and have recommended Dr Forte to many people including all my co workers...
Care falls into deep dark hole – If I could give no stars, I would. Dr Forte was recommended to me by a super caring doctor so I tried to ignore the bad reviews, BIG MISTAKE! I saw Dr Forte in December for well woman exam and she was too busy to complete the exam so I had to make a followup appointment and she dinged my insurance for evaluation both times big $$ even though 1st time she did nothing but talk to me for 2 minutes. Still being optimistic I went to the second appointment and received a referral for my yearly mammogram which came back with abnormal area so had to have spot compression and ultrasound. I called Dr Forte's office Monday to see if report was received and if I needed to do followup. Nurse was to call me and after 2 days, no call so I called back and was told they do not have to call me back for 72 hours! And, if I wanted to get my results I had to make an appointment and Dr Forte was booked out for 4 weeks. I said if Dr Forte was too busy to be my medical advocate she should have told me. I was also told very curtly I should have made an appointment when I had the followup screening. I tried to tell this medical 'professional' that this had never been my experience. That all the doctors I've ever gone to would call me and let me know when out of the ordinary test results were received and next steps, either schedule an appointment or eveything was normal but I never had to be my own medical advocate. So here i sit no results, no call, no doctor (unless i want to wait 4 weeks). I have to go to the image facility and get my own results hopefully normal and pray I never have to communicate with this Doctor or her facility. I would like to think Dr Forte doesn't know the horrible attitude and service of her staff but ultimately a Dr is responsible for their staff's attitude, knowledge and efficiency. Please do not go to this doctor or facility if you care about your health and want a doctor who cares about your healh.
Had better medical service in IRAQ – I was there to get 2 immunization shots from the nurse. I arrived at 5:30pm as they are open until 7pm. I was the only person in the waiting room so I thought I would be seen pretty quickly. They refused to bill my insurance and told me I would have to do it. So I paid the $80 and got my receipt. 30 min later I asked the receptionist if they would be able to see me she responded that they were short staffed. After waiting for an hour I asked them to refund my money, I couldn't wait any longer.
The receptionist told me she didn't know how to do a refund and I would have to come back. I said "I've been waiting for an hour and you can't get me the shots or refund my money?" She responded "IT'S BEEN 57 MINUTES, SIR, NOT QUITE AN HOUR!"
I will never go back to this place again...HORRIBLE service! LOOOONG wait even if you are the only one there! I went to Walgreens take care clinic without an appointment and got my shots in 15 min plus they billed my insurance!
Save your time and money!!!
If you hate your ex wife or ex husband, sent them here! – If you hate your ex wife or ex husband or your mother in law, then send them here! By the time you get out of they waiting room you'll die of old age. If you some how make it out of the waiting room alive the the doctors will finnish the job! Honestly this is by far the worst doctors office ever!!! Please facebook everyone you know and tell them to never, never,never,never come here, but if you have someone in your life that you hate, then please refer them to Forte Family Practice. You will never see them again ;)
WORST OFFICE EVER - THANK GOD I DONT HAVE TO GO BACK! – If I could give this office no stars I would! I would never ever reccommend this office to anyone. My fiance is coming home from Iraq in 6 days, I need my birth control to work (haha) and I've had issues with the one I'm on. I called 2 weeks ago and tried to get it switched, I was told no doctor was in the office and that I would get a call back, I gave the benefit of the doubt and waited a week...maybe they were busy?
The second time I called, I explained to the girl my situation and she was conversational but again told me she would have someone call me back. Nothing.
Third time I called, was a few days ago. Again, I was told someone would call me back that day and promised....again, NOTHING!
I was getting laid off from my job, starting a new one right away but my health insurance is going to be up today so I call this morning talk to someone that sounds like they are finally gonna look at my chart and get me a new prescription. NOPE. I give her the number to Walgreens and everything, she had me search because she didn't want to call it into the wrong one (she said that way she could blame it on me if it was wrong). So I call Walgreens to confirm a couple hours later, NOTHING! So I call back the office, I'm absolutely livid at this point....to find out
THEY LOST MY CHART! THEY COULDN'T FIND IT AT ANY OFFICE AND IF I HADN'T CALLED AND STARTED YELLING NOBODY WOULD HAVE LOOKED! IT LITERALLY DISAPPEARED.
now I'm told mary in medical records is searching and I'll get a call from the office manager tonight, doubt it. Walgreens pharmacy closes at 9 tonight by my house, their office is already closed and I still haven't gotten a call. Looks like I have to go to planned parenthood to get birth control because my DOCTOR can't handle so much as even HOLDING ON TO MY CHART!!!
oh and to re-iterate what others say, dr. forte is rude and just rushes through patients, you truly are nobody to her. You can tell she is rushing, given she might be busy but then don't take so many appointments. If I could have switched doctors a long time ago I would have but the health insurance with my company forces me to choose out of a list of doctors and I heard the best reviews about her! I don't wanna see what the bad reviewed doctors on that list are capable of!
