Dr. Vorster is a brilliant, funny, and warm person who has an integrative approach to treatment. He helped me and my family feel heard/understood. He explained things clearly and helped me understand my condition like no one else. I never write reviews. However, I've been so impressed with his ability to use his specialized expertise & experience in such a warm personal way.

Dr.Vorster did my Cervical and Lumbar spine Surgeries for Spinal stenosis, I was very pleased, He left Akron to go home to take care of his father, I wish he was back in? Akron, I had 2 more spine Surgeries and I am having some new problems, I had totally recovery from the surgeries he performed, The other surgeries was done by another, but he doesn't take my insurance, I would go to Cleveland? to be treated by Dr.Vorster. My first Surgery was in 2012.

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! ??
