Dr. Forster is not only a seasoned professional with years of expertise in complex psychiatric diagnosis, but demonstrates compassion and access to this concerned family member on several occasions. I remember one night though, a different hospital location, my loved one entered an emergency admission. I called their office at closing hours to get medication list. How surprised and thankful, that evening, Dr. Forster reached out with support, making a scary circumstance a little better. Caring!
