Fishers, IN |
I had a first and last visit with Dr. Dorwart yesterday and it was a complete waste of time. I was referred there for pain management from my doctor PCP...and rheumatologist, he went through my information and then suggested the same methods of injections that currently aren't working. Plus weight loss, I have maybe 20-25lbs to lose..unlike him who has over 200-300lbs to lose! Go elsewhere!! I know I am

Horrible man! I knew when I first met him I was in trouble! Did not listen, did not care about my health and why I was there. Basically told me oh well to my problems and walked out! I will never use IU again for anything! And no I was not sent there looking for a drugs just help figuring out how to get out of pain. Nothing!

Dr. Dorwart is a very kind man. He comes across a little aggressive at first, but let's face it, he deals with a lot of people on a daily basis who may not belong in pain management. For my case personally, several other doctors did not care about my pain. Surgery after surgery and my pain only got worse. I have one word to describe dr Dorwart... HUMANE! He actually cares about his patients! I feel so lucky to have found him. His staff is nice and professional as well

Despite poor review I saw Dr Dorwart and Dr Wellington. Dr Dorwart was just terrible and Dr Wellington paralyzed my arm. Run, don't walk away.

Dr has 0 bedside manner. Yelled at me about a diagnosis I don't have and won't assist pain in other areas because he only had a referral for post surgical pain.

I waited 2 months to get in to get a second opinion on my back. He kept cutting me off when I was trying to explain my condition. He then called my primary doctor and told her to discontinue treating my pain with narcotics! I met this guy 1 time for 10 minutes max and he did not help me one bit and wants me to spend more money on tests and wait months before having a device implanted bc he's booked. Clearly I'm in severe pain if I'm going forward with surgery yet he takes away my pain medicine!

Did not even listen to me. Just said he was going to refer me back to sent me to him!!! Didnt even care how much pain i was in. I waited 4 months to see him after they said he approved to see me. Worst doc ever

Dr. Dorwart is a kind and caring physician and just a very nice man. He is honest and attentive and he will go all out to help you with pain management just like he has for me. He makes sure to listen to you and address your fears and issues. His staff is friendly and knowledgeable and very efficient. I feel fortunate to be in the care of Dr. Dorwart and you will too.

I seen Dr. Dorwart this morning and I found him to be very compassionate and carry. He sat and answered every question I had after my exam. He was very patience and gave me a list of other meds my pm doctor can try if the ones she has me on stop helping me. I would recommend Dr. Dorwart to my friends. I liked him very much and he's very proffesional.
Dr. Dorwart is always in a hurry, and is very impatient. He doesn't take the time to explain what he's getting ready to do, or what he's doing. He doesn't listen to your concerns, or take the time to answer questions. He spends as little time possible with you.
