A Godsend
My two kids have been been under the care of Dr. Dorfman for a few years now, and I don't know what we would have done without her. After years of doctors who increased anxiety in my kids - Dr. Dorfman has found the magic in getting my kids to engage with her, and it excellent at guiding us as parents. I am so grateful and after dozen and dozens of doctors, I am so grateful to have found her! Thank you!

Dr. Dorfman does not understand the risks inherent in medication. A few years back, Dr. Dorfman wrote me a prescription for a stimulant medication that resulted in innumerable side effects like irritation, insomnia, and depression. Dr. Dorfman neglected to take into account the severity of my side effects - and as such - she continued increasing my dose of the same medication. Over time, I stopped feeling like myself while also becoming dependent on the drug. Today, many years later, I am continuing a fight I believe could’ve been avoided had Dr. Dorfman understood the dangers of medication.
