Doctor Dorris has been my doctor for over 20 years. She has seen me through some very tough times (the loss of my 25 year old son) and has always made me feel like I am in good hands. She is a good listener and asked good questions. I have recommended her to several friends and they like her as well.

Dr. Dorris has been my internist for several years. I appreciate the time she takes with me to understand all the factors in my life that could be contributing to any medical conditions. She has a lovely bedside manner and I appreciate her moderate approach and willingness to listen to my concerns and treat me accordingly.

I switched doctors for about 5 years trying to find a doctor who would listen and understand that I would prefer holistic treatments before traditional western medicine. Dr. Dorris is the first one to understand, listen and offer treatments that are more along my line of thought and research. She's respectful but doesn't hesitate to tell you what needs to be said. I'm very thankful I finally found a great doctor who doesn't rush me through the exit but gets the whole story before treatment.

Would not recommend her at all. She is just in it for the money. You have an appointment and if you ask a question she states that is a different animal, you need to make another appointment. What is with this... I thought your doctor was suppose to answer and help with your needs. Be careful if you go for your physical and you ask another question because you will be charged for 2 visits - yes that is right 2 visits. No wonder our medical coverage is so expensive. I am so dissatified

Dr. Dorris was extremely helpful and professional during my recent illness. She did not leave a stone unturned and I now am feeling so much better. Thank you to Dr. Dorris, Robin (NP), and her staff for getting me in immediately and reducing the length of my illness! I knew I was in good hands when I started seeing her three year ag, as my primary care physician, and it is comforting to know they are also there in an emergency situation. Feeling grateful for such a top notch office.

I really like her. She always takes care of me when I'm sick tells me what not to do to stay less stressful. And helped me to lose over 100 pounds by encouraging me.
