I have been going to Dr. Forsha's office for years. He has always been very friendly with me and my family. I just recently went back to have my son seen for his acne. There were a lot of new people working there that I didn't recognize from before. The nurse was SO sweet and attentive to my son. The doctor mentioned that they have new management and ""lots of changes"" whatever that means. I can only assume its a good thing because our experience was great. My sons acne is imp...view moreroving which makes him more confident at school and with his friends. That alone makes this mom happy!view lessProvided by Citysearch
I went to Dr. Forsha to have a minor skin problem looked at. I wanted him to do a skin cancer check of my back and face. Man, he was so condescending and rude-- and acted like I was wasting his time. And then, when I mentioned that I had a skin ""tag"" on my face next to my eye, he suddenly froze it with liquid nitrogen-- without asking, and without even telling me to close my eyes! Totally caught me off guard. I'm assuming he was in a huge hurry to get out of the room because I wasn't...view more a high ticket patient-- no cosmetic surgery for me. Man, what a joke. I will never go back and would recommend you avoid Dr. Forsha as well.view lessProvided by Citysearch
My husband and I went to Dr. Forsche for a fairly routine issue. After waiting for half an hour in the waiting, room, we were escorted to the exam room in which we sat for yet another twenty minutes. Finally, the doctor came in and listened to my husband for thirty seconds before diagnosing the issue and writing a prescription. I was a little annoyed with him for several reasons: he spoke over us both on several occasions, he seemed rushed as well as put off that we would dare wate ...view morehis clearly precious time and, while we were waiting in the exam room, we heard him chatting and laughing with his nurses out in the hall. I understand that doctor's offices can run slowly, but - come on; you have people waiting in the lobby, people waiting in the exam room and you can simply chit chat with your nurses about your weekend plans?
After the appointment, we got a bill for $5.00 because his staff charged us the wrong co-pay. This really is nothing, but a minor inconvenience, so it's not that big of a deal, but when I called to pay, I got a message that the phone systems were broken, they were sorry for the inconvenience and to leave a message and they would call back. I left a message and did not hear anything for about a week, so I called back a week later, repeated the process and still did not hear back from them. This occurred three times without a resolution. In retrospect, I could have obviously sent a check, so that's lack of thinking on my part, but I do wonder why they simply could not call back or fix their systems.....
At the end of the day, we got what we needed, but I will certainly not be going back. The doctor performed his duties as a doctor, but was rude, brisk and lacking in any bedside manner.view less
My first appointment I had with this doctor went smoothly all except for the billing. I was charged 25 dollars for a co-payment instead of 30 dollars and after I set up an additional appointment which I canceled a few day before it, I received a bill for 30 dollars. When I called to see what this bill was about they explained that it was because of a missed appointment. After seeing they were in the wrong they removed 25 dollars not explaining that I owed an additional 5 dollars becaus...view moree of being under charged for my co-pay. I then received a collections bill for the 5 dollars where their office sent me to the collections which I personally feel to be their mistake. I called the office back and talked to the person in charge of billing. She was unwilling to work with me and very rude on the phone. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS DERMATOLOGIST TO ANYBODY!!!!view lessShare Review
I brought my daughter in with a rash on her foot. I arrived 10 minutes early and had to wait over an hour to get in. Dr. Forsha came in took one look at her foot and said it was something totally ridiculous. He was my second opinion and I asked him why there was such a difference in the first opinion and his opinion. He said it was because the other doctor wasn't him and got up and walked out of the room! As it turned out HE was totally wrong and I still have to pay for a very expensiv...view moree 5 minute load of crap. Don't go!view lessProvided by Citysearch
My visit to South Valley Dermatology was wonderful! The whole staff there was extremely nice and very helpful. And the Doctor was great as well. They had a lot of great information that really helped me out with my skin problems. And a wide varitey of different products to buy. My fav is the Clarisonic and Latisse!! I would recommend South Valley Dermatology to EVERYONE!!!Provided by Citysearch
I have been a patient at Doctor Forsha's for about 12 years. I have never had a problem with the service and my skin has always looked great. The only problem is the wait but well it is a doctors office and well they are busy so there is a wait. Overall great place, highly recommend it!Provided by Citysearch
The office staff is, without a doubt, the rudest and most incompetent team I have ever had the misfortune to work with. They never return calls (8+ with no response). I have been standing at the receptionist desk before while three of them just sat there and did nothing instead of taking care of the patients. Most of staff is very arrogant (the kind you have a hard time figuring out why) and the rest of them are just weird. Really, it is a 'did that just happen' moment with most i...view morenteractions. I was also scheduled with Dr. Forsha and then seen by the assistant for a medical problem without being told. The assistant was actually very good, much better than Dr. Forsha, whom I met later. Dr. Forsha also quoted me for Botox and the ""needed units"" (and therefore the price) was double that of two other places. Stay clear!\r
Receptionist was very rude when I called to make an appointment. I arived 10 min early to my appointment and waited for almost an hour before even seeing the Dr. Once the Dr. Forsha came into the exam room, he was only with me for about 4 min before leaving. I had no idea what the prescriptions were that he prescribed, or the doses to take them in. All in all the customer service i received was a joke!Provided by Citysearch
