I have been with Dr. Forte for the past 8 years when my first daughter was born. On many occasions Dr. Forte has gone over and beyond for my kids. Dr. Forte has always done a great job. Dr. Forte has always listened and I trust her because she knows the uniqueness of MY girls and she makes herself available. Despite what another reviewer states Dr. Forte does meds by weight - maybe that reviewer had a staff member give her the wrong info? I have seen many nurses/staff come & go- caught a nurse lying once and Dr. Forte let that nurse go. If I notice something not right with staff I let her know. Dr. Forte remains consistently a great doc. 2008/2009 staff is pretty good again.

If you care about your children, do not take them to Tender Care Pediatrics to see Dr. Drake-Forte. She is very uncaring and unprofessional. I had to call her office after 8 weeks of waiting on tests results for my son. No one would ever return my phone calls. I finally had to call the answering service and demand that they contact her. They did thank God and the only thing she could tell me was that she did not call me back, because she was trying to get all her ducks in a row. Her office manager was very rude. After I requested my son's medical records on many different occasions, they refused to send them to me or his new pediatrician. Never ever again.

This doctor is the most careless pediatrician I have ever known of. Her staff is useless. It takes forever to get them to do anything. I had to cancel my sons ear surgery due to the fact they couldn't remember to fax his records. She talks down to you and has no regard for the worries of a first time mother. She is by the book and doesn't understand that every child is different. She wrights up prescriptions by age and not weight. This caused my child to have 8 ear infections back to back in a 3 month time period. She doesn't even take the time to get to know your child. I honestly don't even know why she chose to be a doctor. I would strongly recommend choosing someone else if you want someone who actually cares for your child.
