This was my first visit to Forefront and Dr. VanAcker. My experience was excellent. I had to wait, but was informed that another patient needed attention that they did not anticipate, so that was fine. I received the attention I needed when it was my time. Asja (I may have spelled that incorrectly) - was great in explaining a protocol I will be following. The entire staff was very helpful and pleasant. Ellen R. East Lansing, MI
