Dr. Gorfine is a wonderful doctor. He helped me live a more productive life after being injured in an elevator accident years ago. He takes his time to explain everything to his patients and fixes the root of the problem. I have been pain free due to his knowledge and expertise. Dr. Gorfine’s staff is professional and warm. They really care about each and every patient that walks into their office. I would highly recommend Dr. Gorfine.

After the initial visit, I used my one time change allowed under Workers Comp. Dr Gorfine wanted to go straigh into injections and then possible Rhizotomy, without any testing whatsoever.

After several procedures and wasted time, I am in more pain that when I started. Instead of ordering an MRI, he claims to use trial and error with injections.

He is very bad at diagnosing exactly where the pain is coming from, and none of the expensive procedures worked for me. My primare care referred me to another doctor in the area who I am very happy with! This doctor shook his head in disbelief when he heard what Dr Gorfine had put me through.

Bart in Stanford, Florida – Nov 15, 2016
Very professional made me feel comfortable to trust him for his help. Was understanding and took the time to hear and listen to my concerns. Gave me several options for treatment and did not pressure me into any of them. He let me choose which one I wanted to begin. He stated his opinions and findings clearly and answered any questions I had and told me if there was anything else that I may think of at a later time to call him. Over 30 years experience and still has desire to keep learning!
