I have recommended Dr. Cadena-Forney to many others. She is the primary physician to my entire extended family. I became her patient when she started at providence 11 years ago and I have seen no other primary care doctor since. She is by far the best physician I have ever worked with and I have a very complicated health history along with current health issues.

Dr. Forney is great! Even my knee doctor knows her. He said I would like her and I do. I am hoping she is taking new patients. My sister wants to go see her now.

my Dr is the best and she always makes sure I understand my condition. her concern for my emotional state is awesome bc we really talk about where I am at. we review my meds and there are times she will change meds bc of possible deadly combo. she is the only Dr that challenges my feeling of what I want to what is best for me and my safety. she is the best!!!!!

I most likely feel that I will not be continuing my children's care with this clinic. I feel with the my son being in a sensitive and dangerous situation medically I cannot place his medical needs in the care of a provider that does not care what is happening to him or care about what my question a are.

I would recommend Dr. Cadena-Forney because I trust her and feels she does a fabulous job as a physician. It is INCREDIBLY difficult to get in for an appointment in a timely fashion, however. Because this was an annual exam, I was able to get in in a reasonable amount of time but I am having incredible difficulty getting an appointment for my daughter as a new patient even though she has a recurring issue that needs to be addressed. Communication between the doctor and the schedulers is confusing. The scheduler was supposed to talk to Cadena-Forney about getting my daughter in sooner but I wasn't called back as I was told I would be. Now I'm in a stalemate to get my daughter in for a new patient/medical concern before 3 months' time.

I have always hated and therefore avoided going to the doctor until I started seeing Dr Cadena Forney. She spends as much time as needed with you and you just don't feel rushed. She smiles and doesn't speak down to you. My husband has started seeing her too. She is an absolute blessing!

Dr Gina Cadena-Forney is one of the best Dr's I have had over the years. She is a very good listener & has capability to cut thru the conversation to address the medical problems & take action without feeling rushed. She listens to my concerns regarding tests & meds & makes valuable suggestions.
