Was assigned to Dr. Dorfman. Had high blood pressure problems. Was given medications. None worked. He continued medication although not working. Blood pressure matters became serious with reading in the lower 200s. He became frustrated and assigned me to a Physician Assistant. She could not help either. Was told to keep trying medication. Had to leave him and seek solution elsewhere which I did with great success. Taken off the medication Dr. Dorfman prescribed as dangerous. When you have serious blood pressure issued seek others.

I encountered Dr. Dorfman while an in patient at the hospital seven years ago for a non-cardiac issue. As fortune would have it, while in the hospital, I went in to an arrhythmia and Dr. Dorfman came to assist me. Subsequently, I have seen Dr. Dorfman for testing and follow-up. Dr. Dorfman has performed two stenting procedures for me and helped manage my hypertension and arrhythmia. Dr. Dorfman is knowledgeable and explains things well. Dr. Dorfman understands how my other medical situations impact my heart health and explains that to me. I feel at peace with him. I will let no other cardiologist work with me. Dr. Dorfman also takes time to get to know my family and answer their questions. I moved from the Hermitage area four years ago but I still travel back to Hermitage to see Dr. Dorfman. My heart health concerns me and often stresses me but Dr. Dorfman has a way of calming me down and relaxing me. Highly Recommended. -Paul Adams, Gallatin, TN

Extremely disappointed in this doctor. Very unprofessional attitude and behavior towards patient and family. Without even seeing patient, refused treatment and instead started berating family. Turned very condescending when questioned about medical opinion.
