I'm in need of a double lung transplant. Dr. Dorsey and his staff have been nothing less then spectacular through this very tough time. From the front desk to the nurses to the Dr. himself are wonderful. I'm always treated with concern and respect, Dr. Dorsey has an amazing bedside manner. He is also gifted, in that, he's very good at explaining what is going on with me and translating it into words I can understand. So from Start to Finish, I highly recommend Dr. Dorsey's office.
