Dr. Dorsky is an excellent surgeon who produced great results for me (laminectomy). In my first visit, he gave me an honest appraisal of my condition and did NOT push me into surgery. Once I made my decision, however, he put the wheels in motion quickly, and everything ran like clockwork. His staff is excellent and caring, and one assistant recognizes me by name every time I go there. Dr. Dorsky does not, even after he reads my chart. I don?t care; I value him for his surgical skills.

I met Dr. Dorsky 17 years ago after a car accident. After two surgeries, I had my my life back. Recently, I needed help once again. He was the only doctor I considered. Three days after this surgery, I was up and around. Prior to the surgery, I could not stand more than 5 minutes without severe pain. I highly recommend Dr. Dorsky.
in Berkeley Township, NJ |
Dr. Dorsky is the best and he changed my quality of life. I am now pain free and able to live a much better lifestyle, thanks to him.
in Oak Ridge, NJ |
I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Dorsky. He is very professional and no-nonsense - he does not sugar coat. I was in a bad car accident and sustained significant neck injuries - the pain was excruciating... He treated me as soon as possible with the best possible results considering the injuries I sustained from accident. I still have a pretty long road ahead but I am confident knowing he and his amazing staff are with me on this journey.

I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Steven Dorsky. I was very impress.
in West New York, NJ |
Very professional experience with this doctor, helped a great deal during my time as a patient. I would highly recommend this doctor. This doctor has helped me rehabilitate amazingly and after my spinal fusion surgery, I've never felt better.
in Morristown, NJ |
Dr. Dorsky and his entire team are an outstanding group, and I VERY HIGHLY and without any hesitation whatsoever recommend him. He performed a laminotomy and microdiscectomy at the L5-S1 level with the utmost level of skill. I was home resting comfortably that night, and within mere days the sciatica symptoms which severely limited my life for many months had disappeared. I highly recommend visiting his office; I did, and was given the invaluable gift of a pain-free life again.
in Norwood, NJ |
Dr. Steven Dorsky literally gave me back my life with his expert diagnosis and surgery. His experience and precise explanation of my treatment options allowed me to make a life altering decision with confidence and clarity.
in Cedar Knolls, NJ |
Dr. Dorsky confirmed a diagnosis I previously got. He was very knowledgeable and thoroughly explained my condition and gave me the pros and cons of the recommended surgery. I had the operation and very glad I did. After 6 months recuperation, I am 90% free of pain and feel like my old self again. His staff very helpful, polite and do their best to make you comfortable.
in Dover NJ |
Very knowledgeable man. Takes the time to answer your questions and help determine what's right for you.
