I have known Dr. Dorfman for years, my mom used to see him for her feet. And then many years later he is treating me for plantar fasciitis. I absolutely trust and feel very comfortable with how kind and professional he is. I am doing EPAT for heel pain and it’s great! I highly recommend Dr. Dorman and his staff is also friendly.

Excellent Dr! I’ve been going to Dr Dorfman for a few months for bone spurs, I did laser treatments on my feet, I feel like a new person! I can walk again without discomfort!

I first saw Dr. Dorfman in the 1990's for a bone spur. He did surgery and I haven't have a problem with the toe since then. Last year my husband had a problem with an ingrown toenail and Dr. Dorfman saved his life. He sent him to a vascular surgeon and Bill ended up having surgery. This week it's my turn with an infected ingrown toenail. He just cleaned and cut it out. No pain. I have and would highly recommend Dr. Dorfman to anyone looking for a GREAT podiatrist.

For over a year I was in so much pain. I could barley walk. I was afraid of surgery. Dr. Dorfman suggested EPAT, Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Treatment. After a few months I felt like I had my life back and after a year I am pain-free. I am so grateful. Thank you Dr. Dorfman for giving me my life back. John

I tried a variety of things to cure my achillies but nothing worked. Someone who had the same problem referred me to Dr. Dorfman. I was told there was a non-surgical option and I loved that idea. I was very chronic, and had had it for a very long time even doing my Martial Arts wearing a boot on the mats. He told me he could do EPAT on my achillies which involves no drugs. Sure enough, my achillies have gotten better and better and I am able to do things in my Martial Art...

I was a little apprehensive at first but after the first treatment I was a believer. And the fact that I could continue my tennis during treatment is the amazing thing.

I fell from a ladder and sustained a serious injury. My neighbor referred me to a foot and ankle specialist in Boca. I was not making any progress in my recovery. Being laid up gave me plenty of time to read and research. I learned about a relatively new treatment called Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Therapy EPAT aka Shock wave therapy. I learned that Dr Dean Dorfman was ahead of the curve and was already using it to successfully treat tendon injuries. After a re-evalua...

Going from a sharp pain when I would run and for days after, I was afraid my running days were over. After four weekly treatments I was able to run 4 times in 8 days, around 3 miles each without pain. Thank you Dr. Dorfman, I'm a runner again!! Joe Bernstein

I was desperate for some relief from my tendonitis in my feet and ankles. I had been in pain for 6 weeks and needed 2 canes and ankles supports to walk even a short distance. One treatment from Dr. Dorfman and I am able to walk without aid and my pain is almost gone. I had no idea what was wrong or how to fix it so I am so thankful to Dr. Dorfman (and his very pleasant and helpful staff) for getting me back on my feet--literally! I give them my very highest recommendation.
