The most antagonistic doctor I have ever met. I made it clear that I wanted a procedure to help me with pain and was not interested in medication. I was treated like a liar right off the bat for the simple fact that I HAD taken pain medication for my condition. Dr. Dooley came into the room and...Read More

Dismissive, marginalizing. Abrupt. Unwilling to link up with a specialist for a phone consult to discuss a rare disease within my spine he clearly knows nothing about, or he would not have a nurse practitioner suggesting a spinal cord stimulator during a 1st consult. Minimized records clearly...Read More

This was address to his "billing" staff and was told Dr. Dooley does his own coding and billing and will do whatever he wants. Charges...Read More

This guy is bully and drives away staff. 5 NP in five months and 3 clinic names. The staff walks around on pins and needles. If you like paying for med checks and have to explain why your there. Then this guy is for you. DO NOT go there
