What People Say About Dr. Pooja Dorward, MD

I was very happy with my experience with Dr Doward and the entire practice. I had a biopsy. She called me later in the evening, way beyond office house and took plenty of time to explain the results and the recommended treatment. The entire office is very friendly and professional. I would recommend her to anyone.

When I arrived, the receptionist told me I could not be seen today because they had not received my referral. When I called my doctor's office, I was given a number to call for the referral department. Dr. Dorwood's receptionist would not speak to anyone about the referral that had been made.. She simply said I had 10 minutes to get a copy to her or I would need to reschedule. I stormed out very unhappy and stressed over the whole experience. I will not return.

Dr. Dorward is far more interested in seeing as many patients as possible ($$$) than in expressing any interest or concern about the one in front of her. I will not go back to her. From the moment she entered the room, it was obvious she couldn't wait to get on to someone else. She spoke so quickly that I had to ask her to repeat - annoying to her! If you're looking for a doctor who really cares - keep looking!

Dr. Dorward was very knowledgeable and super friendly. She was a great listener as I expressed my concerns and answered any questions that I had. She was able to remove a mole for me on the same day as my appointment. I have recommended her to my family and friends.
