What People Say About Dr. John Dolena, DO

Dr Dolena first approached us with kindness and acted like he was trying to help our son,but,at the end he misdiagnosed our son by lying about his situation with no real evidence or proof to back his diagnosis.He only saw our son twice and in the two times he saw our son he asked him 4 questions between both visits and completely defined our son to be something that he was not.in fact,the category of the questions that he asked our son had nothing to do with his condition at all.

I had heard from others to avoid Dr. Dolena and wished that I had taken their advice. Dr. Dolena was unbelievably arrogant, condescending, and disrespectful. I have never been so utterly shocked by a practioner’s behavior. I strongly advise against seeing him.

I find Dr.Dolena to be extremely knowledgable, attentive to my concerns and questions and observant of his patients. He is very up to date with his views and treatments. He is one of the few child psychiatrists available in this area and has a heavy caseload. But I still highly recommend.

Not personable. Does not listen to patient or parent. I do not feel like he enjoys his profession whats-so-ever. I am actively seeking new doctor for my son. Recommendations appreciated.
