Dr. D doesn't write chart notes or remember who you are, but I let that go because he is a doctor and they don't really care who you are as long as you pay your copay and they get to bill your insurance. The part that I can't let go is the fact that I paid 200.00 cash for a copay at the front desk for a balance owed on my account, the receptionist stole the money and the office manger, Karen, told me they had to let her go for embezzling from another patient as well. However, I have to pay again
Unfortunately Ms CR gave cash to a dishonest former employee without any receipt. She then got a bill from my billing office and threatened to BLOWup the practice on social media if I refused to write off her balance. This assessment above is her transparent response. Dr D

My experience with Dr. Dohrewend has been very good. He takes time to assess my health issues and answers my questions and concerns in a caring and professional manner.
in Harvest, AL |
This place is a money-making machine. If you like to part with your cash (co-pay), come here. Multiple and unnecessary office visits for what Dr. D likes to call "patient education". "Patient Rip-Off" is more like it!!! His nurse is easy on the eyes though and she's the only one I'll miss. FUBAR
Mr M M believes he should not be required to pay co-pays , fill out current medicines lists or wait more than 2 minutes after showing up late for scheduled office appointments . After my personal phone call to him to discuss his misconceptions on how to practice medicine, he was fired from my practice as a patient due to his non compliance. He is an example of the 1 percent of patients that make the practice of medicine unpleasant.
in Madison, AL |
Dr. Dohrenwend listens very closely to my problems and spends the appropriate amount of time with me. I do not feel rushed. His staff is very polite and courteous. The diagnosis have been accurate and very helpful.

The doctor was nice and took his time answering my questions. I did have to have a procedure done. A month later I went in for a follow up with the PA and she couldn't answer my question so she had the doctor come in. The doctor took a look at the biopsy report and said I have pre cancer cells and need to be checked every five years. I was mortified that they never called me and if I didn't ask a question, I would never have found out I might develop colon cancer in a few years.
in Madison, al |
This was absolutely the worst medical experience I've ever had. I went to see him for pain and nausea and they did nothing. I ended up having emergency surgery a week later. What kind of office doesn't accept credit cards in 2016? I've now paid my CASH copay twice and today I got another bill in the mail. I trusted them the first time so I didn't get a receipt but thank goodness I got one the second time. I had to drive all the way there to pay them cash. Do not waste your time or health
Madison, AL |
I have had this doctor for a number of years, but when called in for a check-up, I was told I had to pay cash or check. Note I've had several colonoscopy's with this doctor, and been a patient for 14 years. They were going to make me go find an ATM and get cash and bring back like some drug deal. Very insulting. I walked out. I've always liked him, but this was ridiculous in 2016 to not take debit or credit.
This practice has accepted cash or checks for co-pays since 2004. We now accept credit cards also as of july 7,2016. I do not bill co-pays as too many wont pay their co-pay when billed. All doctors offices I have been to require co-pays on day of service. I am uncertain why patients come to a Physicians office or restaurant without any means to pay co-pays or for their food.
in Huntsville, AL |
I like Dr. Dohrenwend. However, his waits times are horrendous. Normal is an hour. I've waited 2 1/2 hours. No excuses, I am sorry. But as a physician, I trust his medical experience and his advice.
in Huntsville, AL |
Definitely a patient's advocate. He has been my husband's GI doc for years and I've seen him a few times too. He takes the time with each patient to ensure that all is understood. That sometimes means a wait- but is worth waiting a bit for excellent care.
in Harvest |
I stopped to get a stool sample kit and it took the office and medical staff 25 minutes to get one and get it to me in the waiting room.

takes the time to sort my problems out and has gotten it right !!

Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
