"I have been a patient of Dr. Gary Fornera’s since March 2013 concerning pre-cancer of the vulva region.  After undergoing 4 partial vulnectomies, I want you to know how compassionate, caring and what an understanding doctor he has been to me.  He is a wonderful asset to your medical clinic.  His nurse, Andrea, is pretty awesome also."
