      in Black Canyon City, AZ |
      Dr. Dorfman performed a bone replacement surgery, so I can get a replacement molar. I was apprehensive prior to surgery and Dr. Dorfman and his staff eased my fears. They explained the procedure and I felt confident with Dr. Dorfman's skill level. There were no complications with little to no down time. I have two more minor surgeries and I will return to Dr. Dorfman's office for both procedures!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
