Neurology | Male

Care Philosophy

My direct approach in treating and caring for patients is to fight fear associated with disease and focus on getting the patient well again. I educate my patients on their condition and give them an open environment to ask questions so they we may make the best medical decisions for them together. Patient involvement in their own care is very important and making sure they have a clear understanding and expectations are met. We pride ourselves in clear and timely responses to their questions and concerns.

    in Maple Valley, WA |
    I found after seeing Dr. Gorman that he had been in correspondence that showed compromise of my character as patient. His findings were not objective, but predetermined. He did not give me a fair hearing and dismissed me without resolution or recommendation to someone who could help. A waste of time and money.

    Dr. Gorman says...

     I was a general practitioner for 10 years before Neurology. This gives me a broader scope of medicine. My area of expertise is in cognitive disorders and the behavioral components that go along with them. I am fellowship trained and specialty board certified by theUnited Council of Neurologic Subspecialties in Behavioral and Neuropsychiatry. My extra training gives me vast knowledge in the area of dementia and cognitive disorders. I am however; a general neurologist and I see patients with headaches, movement disorders, such as Parkinson's disease, seizures, MS, and strokes.
