Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Dopf "Dr. Dopf prides himself on not leaving an exam room until all of his patients? questions are answered. He uses common language when explaining diagnosis and treatment options, and takes minimally invasive approaches to surgery whenever possible. He finds the best outcomes come from having a relationship of mutual respect with patients who are willing to do what is necessary to reduce their pain. He also understands how important family support is for the healing process."

Patient Comments (4)

He's a good surgeon, but he has serious anger issues. He is verbally abusive to patients when he is angry.

Dr. Dopf and his team are wonderful - they gave me back a near pain-free life. I can't speak highly enough about the care I got, and the result was all I could have hoped for.

I had an experimental surgery Jan 1998 with spondaylis . He fused L4 & L5 on my back. I was about 50 years old. The operation was about 10 hours. He operated on my back going thru my belly. He was very young and did a perfect job. I am a non smoker and non drinker. I have used my back hard ,no...more
