Took over as my primary physician and completely just left me out to dry on my FMLA. Just completely unprofessional not looking out for patients who you've taken over for.

I have had 2 visits with this doctor. The visits were for an old shunt from 1963 in my head. I have pressure, full and painful filling in it every waking hour. The first visit he got up and started washing his hands as I was speaking with him. The second visit, when I ask him a direct question about the pain I am feeling in it, he redirect the question to my cervical spine problem. I ended up walking out!! I will be contacting Cleveland Clinic and my other doctors to recommend a replacement.

Dr. Vorster is the best! I had to undergo brain surgery in 2011! ( actually 4 ) This was the toughest time of my life, not only for myself but for my family, and close friends as well!! He is an excellent surgeon! He listens & understands life! I'm so happy to know he's still practicing in Ohio! ??
