Dr. Dorsay has been wonderful. He went above and beyond to fix the problems with my fistula. Now, dialysis is a breeze. Thank you very much.

I have never experienced a more uncaring, rude, or inconsiderate medical professional in my life! My second visit he made me wait for a full hour in the little room, never apologized, never even closed the door, and just shrugged his shoulders when I asked a question. Third visit was for results of further testing. Total visit lasted less than two minutes, but he'll charge insurance. He could have made a phone call and saved me a two hour drive. He doesn't care about his patients at all!
