Everyone was professional and friendly.I never had to wait for my light therapy more than 5 minutes.The treatments were authorized by the Veterans Administration. This resulted in a slowdown in communications by the VA a few times, but this was not the fault of Forefront. Emilee Cunningham was my go-to person and did a remarkable job.

I was very impressed by Dr Garvey & Emily(nurse) which was my first appt. at this clinic. They both were very informative about the procedure that was being done - & the follow up I would expect. I felt confident when I left the office that I can expect the results as soon as they get them. The receptionist greeted me with a smile & made me feel comfortable. I have heard great things about this clinic & I did experience that on my first appt.
