Dr. Louise Forrister is AMAZING! Ireally like her alot!! At this visit, I needed an xray, but xray wasn\'t available due to shortage of an xray tech. I also needed lab work, which was delayed due to a shortage and absence of a lab tech at the time I was sent for labs. Dr. Forrister was in the lab, looking for a container for a urine sample. She could not find a nurse to help her find the urine sample cup, due to a shortage in nurses. This was the first time I was unhappy with care at this facility, but it was due to the shortage of medical staff, despite great care trying to be given by Dr. Forrister. The care she was trying to provide was hindered due to a shortage in staff. I am certainly glad I wasn\'t there in a critical situation, but I was referred to a specialist since I was unable to get complete diagnostic tests done at the time of my visit.

The only problem I have is she only works two and one half days per week. I know there is other doctors on site. How ever I do not like to see other doctors. For one thing they do not know you Like the doctor you see all the time. they do not know your history.
