Successful resolution of plantar fasciitis
I am an ultramarathon runner. After struggling for three months with plantar fasciitis, and trying most of the traditional approaches to solving the problem without success, two running friends independently told me about Dr. Dean Dorfman and that his treatment had gotten rid of their own "PF". I was skeptical at first, but after 4 weekly treatments--right on target--the pain went away. My skepticism is gone! Three weeks later I ran a 50-mile race. During and the day after the race, I felt a little discomfort, but not enough to prevent me from running normally, and the ache was gone on the second day. If you are suffering with plantar fasciitis, I highly recommend Dr. Dorfman and his "EPAT" shockwave therapy treatment. It is non-invasive. It really works.

I had been to a walk-in clinic, a massage therapist and another doctor looking for a diagnosis and solution to significant foot pain. Dr. Dorfman correctly diagnosed my foot pain (I could barely walk) in about 5 minutes. His recommend treatment resulted in pain relief in 2 days, walking in 4 and almost 100% full recovery in 2 weeks.

Instructed that orthotics would cost $450.00 (not covered by insurance)- at check out cost was $600.00 and told f/u visit included -as he was cutting orthotics to go in the shoe I asked if blue light would help a toenail ( as I had scheduled an appointment for blue light for her and was curious )- Dr. Dorfman said, "try this tolcylen" which I purchased. Now, I am being charge another $150.00. OMG!! When I called to explain to office staff that the visit was already paid for and it was a simple question they got nasty and hung the phone up. BEWARE of questionable billing practices. There were no cultures taken etc to justify a charge. Even worse the expensive liquid did't even work.

Dr. Dorfman is wonderful. Very caring patient and listens to your concerns. He is very knowledgeable and has a multitude of options based on your situation. The office staff is friendly and welcoming. Very different than most doctors offices. You feel like you’re not a number but a real person. Dr. Dorfman was open to answering my questions. This level of confidence along with great bedside manner is absent in most medical practices. Most doctors are arrogant and do not like patients who ask questions. Thank you For a great experience.

I wish I would have met Dr. Dorfman years ago when my problems first started. Now he's trying to fix the problems that were created. I've only seen him a couple of times and really like him & trust him. He was also highly recommended to me by 2 ppl , one of which is a doctor, so that should count for something, right!? Also, I believe he's a doctor that really cares about his patients & I feel he's going to do whatever he can to help me. He's very knowledgeable, clearly explains the problem, possible solutions & takes time to discuss your thoughts. And yes, his staff is nice & facility is clean. What more could you ask for?!
