Dr. Dombrowski is obviously an expert at what he does. He quickly diagnosed the source of my excruciating pain and gave me a shot that provided enormous relief. He also was very reassuring and gave me his cellphone number in case of emergency. It is very comforting to know that he will be there for me in case the pain returns.

The doctor always listens closely and asks questions when I see him. He is respectful but thorough in his examination and I couldn't be more satisfied. (I have been his patient for many years.)

Dr. Dombrowski was thorough, knowledgable, engaging, and responsive to all of my questions and concerns. He was patient and forbearing and took pains to hear me despite my speech which is muted by Parkinsons. The member of his staff who interviewed me was friendly and also thorough.

I had a question about some troubling symptoms such as not being to bear down on my left leg from time to time. Dr. Dombrowski dealt with them quickly as being normal - nothing to worry about. However I continue to be concerned with my blood pressure and will probably call my cardiologist for an appointment.

5 stars! Dr. Dombrowski takes time to discuss my symptoms and answer all of my questions before the treatment. He also cautions on long-term solutions that may be better handled by a spine specialist who may recommend exercises for treatment or possibly surgery. He has provided me with very effective pain treatment in a very professional manner. His office are also friendly and very efficient.
