What People Say About Dr. John Dorman, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Everyone was so very nice, all the staff. Didn’t have to wait very long, and visit by nurses, his nurse ask questions, very concern about my back injuries. Dr. Came in and gave me hope on doing surgery on my back, the only doctor who has given me hope. Cared about my condition, my pain, and let me decide if and when he could do the surgery. Been in pain for 2years, all the doctors want to give pain pills but not talk about what Iwant, my pain. Dr. Dorman is kind, caring, the Lord led him to me!

I highly recommend Dr. Dorman. He is very kind and his office staff is very friendly. He was very honest with me about my condition and took good care of me. The waiting room was very crowded and I did have to wait longer than I thought but I'm glad I went to see him anyway.
