If there was such a rating of a big fat nothing, that is the rating John b. Dooley would receive! He's a pathetic excuse for a human being, let alone a doctor. He graduated from UIHC in iowa city in 1984..that explains a whole hell of a lot. He is truly a QUACK, in every sense of the word and should never carry the title of Dr. because he's anything but professional. I WAS a patient of his office for almost 6 yrs. and not once did he ever order current MRI's on my entire back even when this very office was unsuccessful in obtaining my past MRI results...Dooley did not ever order a single xray regarding my back in the entire time i was a patient in this office and yet, he claims he was the expert on MY chronic pain! Unless you yourself experiences chronic pain, you have NO idea what someone lives with daily. He and his staff alter records, they are very rude and all of his clinics should be put out of business!!! Dooley is one of the biggest jokes I've ever met!!! Robin c. 6/4/19

He is a terrible Dr. He doesn’t care about his patients. He doesn’t listen at all. He spends the absolute minimum amount of time possible with them when he has to see them and if they ask questions, he gets visibly mad as if his patients concerns do not matter and he is being slowed down from making as much money in a day by seeing as many patients as possible while giving no care. All he wants to do is surgery even if the patient did not have any relief from the tests. He is the worst Dr.

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 asked what I wanted before he even bothered to introduce himself. By the time I got a chance to explain the condition I have been treated for over the last 6 years I was already considered a waste of time

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 indicating the depth and breadth of damage throughout my spine, records even mentioning reconstructive surgery. Called it age related when only the stenosis/arthritis was. Only local hope to me- discouraged

Very rude provider. Does not listen to your issues, speaks down to you, spends less than 5 minutes with you. Billing is inconsistent with Medicare guidelines. 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 for surgery follow up visits that should be bundled into surgery charges. Very unprofessional, rude and I would never recommend anyone to go to him.

Dr. Dooley should be ashamed of himself. The man came into the room insisting there's nothing wrong with me. I asked him if he read my records, and if he saw my exrays. He said he could tell by the paper I filled out before my appointment that there's nothing wrong with me. He said I have fibro myalgia and he would prescribe psych meds for me. Today I went to my new Dr. I have 2 disintegrated discs of my Cervical spine. They are pinching my nerves causing me pain. I'm so angry, he let me suffer!

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

I am extremely happy with how my visits with Dr. Dooley went. I was a mess before receiving any treatment from the Pain Centers of Iowa. He was compassionate and really helped me find a correct diagnosis and treatment plan.

I'd give this place 0 stars if I could. Drove all the way to Davenport, IA from Madison, WI for an IV ketamine infusion for depression, Dr Dooley came in and immediately started berating me with a half smirk on his face, disrespecting Dr Keil, my family doctor for 20 years, who has helped me tremendously. Basically 4-5 minutes of him arguing with me, ranting about the injections I've gotten (that actually help). Awful, I walked out rather than take his abuse and tone.

I was a patient of Dr. Dooley and his Nurse Practitioner. My complaint is with Dr Dooley. I felt he had zero empathy for my specific needs and was very demeaning and made me feel as though I should not have been there. Other Dr's I had worked with or been a patient of were empathetic and treated my needs. I think you should expect more out of a health professional as they are your advocate. I would never recommend him, period.
