What Our Patients Say

So glad I didn't give up. She's amazing!!! We came and she's Definitely so worth the effort. She's so sweet w children. She stayed after hours to see us. She's kind and she's very patient! We will be her patients for sure!!!
After Dr. left me a message I did go ahead and call and the receptionist (a different person) was awesome) she was super friendly, and welcoming. Helped me schedule appointments for both myself and my daughter. Feel grateful we will get to see this Dr, as she's so highly rated. Will keep you all posted !

My boyfriend had an ingrown toenail removal surgery on each of his big toes. Everything from scheduling the first consultation to the postop follow-up was so easy and smooth. Doctor Forg did an incredible job, and my boyfriend felt very confident that he was in good hands for this procedure. Doctor Forg has a great practice, and we highly recommend her.

Best Dr I have ever been to. No insurance run around , no wait and immediate relief from pain.
Out of nowhere about 2 weeks ago the top of my foot starting hurting. This past Monday I had a meeting and the pain became severe. I could barely walk. Went to a urgent care covered under Anthem BC/BS. They gave me an X-ray and checked my blood for gout.
They came back confused and said it was an infection. I insisted it was something else. (I'm a fit person in great shape. I know my body.) they said no, it's swollen and hot to the touch. I said the same would apply to a tendon tear or maybe a fracture. Nope, they knew more and sent me home with penicillin and a post op shoe for a foot. 2 days later I couldn't even stand on it. Found this Dr. , came in and within 10 minutes she diagnosed a stress fracture. Gave me a proper boot for the injury and I was up walking around with 75% less pain in a matter of minutes. On top of that she charged me $40 for the boot which I guarantee would of been $300 at the urgent care. Her fee for seeing me was unbelievably low as well. Morale of this story, if you don't want the insurance run around and need immediate results for far less than a cheap dinner this is the Dr. for you.

God bless Dr. Forg and her staff! I had taken my very elderly mother-in-law to two other podiatrists for tough toenail cuttings. They were either not gentle enough or not patient enough or both. My MIL screamed while they cut her nails. Enter Dr. Forg - she had a lovely bedside manner with her - she was calm patient and relaxed her and trimmed all her nails with barely a Peep from MIL !!!! We have been now going to Doctor Forg for the past couple of years, and each time she is wonderful. Also , her staff are all caring and friendly. Highly recommend !!!

Wow Dr Forg is a true professional in every sense. Obviously she has seen many thousands of feet and can call upon science, experience and keen-eyed instinct. No matter your age, custom orthotics may address structural issues before you're hobbled by them. For no nonsense expert care this is the place!
- Green S.
I really liked this lady. She painlessly relieved me of a painful callus. The other two issues I asked about were more unsolvable - like a little toe growing sideways - but she didn't even suggest that it could be solved by surgery - it's just something I'll have to live with. So, very down to earth.
- Sensi L.
Dr Forg is literally a life saver. I recently started having extreme pain in my right foot from a bunion, plantar fisciatus and nerve damage and was barely able to stand let alone walk.
She did a cortisone injection and gave me inserts. Worked like a charm . Her staff is also amazing, smart, friendly and kind.

Very charming office in North Park. The staff is very courteous and making an appointment is easy. I'm new to San Diego so of course I got lost and they were super helpful and understanding since I was running late. This was my first appointment and they were in the process of transitioning to a new system which caused intake and check out to take a bit longer than what would be normal but they consistently communicated that so I was aware going in. Dr Forg was really personable, eased my fear, and made sure to explain everything. I went in for a lump on my foot which turned out to be a bone spur but she didn't push me to surgery because it wasn't necessary. She also took samples of my toe nails because I've been cycling and they have been peeling but again, I was impressed by the courtesy. She asked if I was paying out of pocket or if I had insurance BEFORE she took the samples. Even though I have really good insurance and a healthy income, I appreciated this gesture. Healthcare is high and when lab tests enter the picture it can get high.
