I want each patient to feel as though I have listened to them and that I’m caring and compassionate. I try to understand how their condition affects them. Patients often tell me that I’m very thorough, which translates into taking the time needed to treat their condition.

The billing department at Forefront has been less than desirable. Billing has been chaotic. Bills from a January 2021 visit arriving in May and June with multiple notices ( at least 6) for the same amount even after it was paid. This billing process is by far the most confusing out of all the hospitals and doctors that our family deals with. I stay with Forefront due to the physicians. Nothing else. And with the recent data breach, I would highly recommend looking into your business accounting practices.
