Michael Forseth, M.D.

"Volunteering overseas, in places like Haiti, Columbia, and Honduras, continues to be a positive influence on my practice. My experiences there have broadened my perspective about what I do here — personally and professionally."

Heather, St. Paul, MN
After breaking my finger playing flag football I needed surgery to reconstruct it. I felt very comfortable with Dr. Forseth. He was very down to earth and explained everything in detail. I now have full control and range of motion in my finger. I would absolutely refer others to Dr. Forseth.
