I was so relieved after arriving at my appointment! Dr. Dorsey really listens and takes notes the entire visit! I really felt I was in the best possible place for my asthma treatment! As a medical professional myself, I could see that Dr. Dorsey was a physician that had gone into medicine for all the right reasons! We are very fortunate to have him in the area!

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.
