Dr. Dorsey is very knowledgable, professional and personable. The appointment was scheduled kind of at the last minute and I had no problem getting it scheduled. Upon arrival at his office on the day of the appointment, the receptionist was very efficient and professional. There was no long wait! The appointment time was met as scheduled. That is very refreshing in this day and time. A doctors office that is respectful of my time. I was in to see the Dr. Dorsey on time and the medical issue was handled quickly and effectively.
