After having Dr Gorsen operate on my husband, and two of my employees, I chose to drive over two and one-half hours, one way, to get Dr. Gorsen's opinion on my current back problems. He has requested further testing, so I will have more long trips, but it's worth every mile, to have someone I can trust without reservation. He has been recognized as one of the top rated Neurosurgeons in the DC area, but more importantly, he has a 100% successful rating with me!

Dr. Gorsen schedules patients so that he has time to ask questions, study MRI's, and listen to their concerns. He is compassionate, genuine, and conscientious. He honors both the dignity and privacy of those whom he tends.
