When I first met with Dr. Dorsett I was taken away by his beauty. It was difficult to take him seriously, because he really is a man. As I was able to setting down, I also learned he is also a doctor. I felt bad objectifying him, but I am sure I am not the only one.

Dr. Dorsett has a nice demeanor and takes time to explain my health issues. I was referred to him by a family member who sees his partner Dr. Sheth. Both doctors are nice and are easy to talk to. My case is somewhat complicated so I am not going to go into all the details, but i am very happy with my level of service.

Dr. Dorsett is very young, but he does a good job. Sometimes I think that it is better when they first come out of medical school. But who knows. I really don't have anything bad to say about Dr. Dorsett. So that is a good thing.

CS in Cypress, TX – Jun 08, 2016
I was venturing on a rural walk reminiscing about my past, when I happened upon a my good friend Squire Richards. We walked to a nearby hilltop from where we could see all over the country. It was such a magnificent view spread out beneath us. Green wheat, hedges and pastureland. But then, as I removed my binoculars, I suddenly lost my footing and injured my back. While visiting a long lost distant cousin in Houston, I made an appointment with Dr. Dorsett. He did an adequate job.

Jon in Houston, TX – Mar 24, 2016
His staff is very rude, incompetent and does not try to assist the patient. They did not verify the insurance info so I had to wait for them verify the info. Then I'm told I need a referral for PCP Doctor. Dr. Dorsett refused to speak with me. I was either schedule another appointment or go to the ER. Today I was suffering because the pain and no sleep for a few days form pain. I was in tears because no one would help. Dr. Dorsett sent his office manager to tell me reschedule so I left for ER.
