"I just wanted to say how happy and glad I am to have Dr. Fornera and his nursing staff help me with all my obstacles and problems.   I put my complete trust in Dr. Fornera and have respect for him.  He is a wonderful doctor and could not ask for a better doctor.  I want him to deliver my next child.  He has made me feel hope for a better future for a baby."
