What People Say About Dr. Gerald Dworkin, DO

The wait is so long because it's a meat market for opioids. He's in and out of the room non stop. The office was packed, people waiting outside. That's a red flag. He is also a Comp doctor. I was sent to him. He gave me to much medication during a prodcedure, made my heart race terribly. Then after the 3rd time in the mail he sent me meds I'm allergic to, I had to refuse to see him. Stay clear! Norm is very sweet, but he is a complete mess.

Helped me greatly many times after I broke both ankles and affected my entire body. Was able to attend my son's outside wedding on grass (uneven surfaces) and attend the entire wedding (after not being able to be up for hours before). He is wonderful......knows what he is doing and HELPS change people's lives so that they are able to walk and live life. Years later I need some help with a performis muscle and he was able to give me pain shots which made me able to sit, stand and walk.

Nice doctor but scheduled too many patients at the same time. No staff member explains why the wait time is so long. Plan to be there at least 3 or more hours for medical visits. Then the visit is rushed as well as procedures & god forbid something goes wrong as in my case. Good luck to new patients. I wish I had seen these reviews instead of depending on his colleagues recommendations. Looking for another physician & office that REALLY CARES instead of treating you like a NUMBER! STILL IN PAIN

Dr.Dworkin is an Excellent Doctor! I been seeing him for 5months now and will continue to as long as need be. Yes, the wait is a bit long however, its worth the wait. After leaving his office (Darby Ofc.) I feel like a million bucks?? Never was I rushed out. Dr. Dworkin or staff member always makes sure you are okay before you leave. J.Pagano

Do not go to this doctor. He does listen to you. In and out of the room within 3 minutes. Always rushing my visits. Very disappointed. Sorry I wasted my time for over 5 months. Always a 2 hour wait beyond appointment time. No bedside manner. I'm speaking about Darby office. I now have to find another doctor.
