A true blessing after 3 unsuccessful surgery’s elsewhere...he gives me real hope in getting some pain relief. The extra time he took to explain I actually do have other options and what I can expect from my next procedure and after is greatly appreciated!

It's been a little over a year since Dr. Dorbish removed loose screws in my back that no other surgeon would touch. This was my 5th surgery on my back and if it wasn't for him, I would probably have ended up in a wheelchair because the loose screws were causing my nerves to be pinched. He made me feel very comfortable and his staff was awesome as well. I would definitely recommend Dr. Dorbish.

Scheduling staff person named Becky was extremely inefficient, uncaring and gave incorrect information. She allowed 3 days to go by asking me to get more and more information just to schedule an appointment only to find out that she was wrong in what she was asking me to provide.

AMAZING doctor. He completed a major surgery on my C3-c7 discs in my neck. Explained everything to me walking me through the steps. He is very passionate, and has excellent patient interaction. I can't thank Dr. Dorbish enough for saving my quality of life!

Dr. Dorbish is an amazing surgeon. I am totally pain free after years of suffering. He takes time to explain all options & understands your fears & concerns. I would recommend him to anyone with spinal issues. His staff is equally caring.

He is very easy to talk to and offers other treatments to try to defer doing back surgery.

I was terrified at the thought of spinal surgery, but Dr. Dorbish makes it all seem OK. He doesn't make me feel like an idiot for being so scared, he isn't condescending at all, and he takes the time to answer questions in a way you can understand. He fixed me up quickly and completely, and if I need any future surgeries I'll be asking for him. If you were lucky enough to get referred to him like I did, look no further- you are in good hands.
