Dr. Dorfman is at the top of his game which has been a bonus for helping me through some difficult health issues. At my last appointment in May Dr. Dorfman said I was looking better than he had ever seen me. Well that would be due to his expert care and treatment and he was right I feel better than I have in years.

Dr. Dorfman guided me through a critically necessary aortic replacement process. He was both funny and kind in helping me come to grips with a very scary diagnosis. I am more than a year out and feeling great and grateful.

I am a new patient with Dr Dorfman. I had my first visit with him about 3 weeks ago. I was impressed by the time he took with me and my wife. He explained my condition and his treatment plans in a way my wife and I were able to understand. He explained throughly the results of my recent test and the purpose of future testing. After having an echo, his office called the following day and went over the results. Thus far I have been impressed with Dr Dorfman’s and his staff.

I have been seeing Dr Dorfman for over 3 years. When my elderly father needed to see a cardiologist I asked for him to me refereed to Dr Dorfman. In my onion he is the best!!! He explains everything in detail and always listens to my concerns. After test he calls himself to give us the results. After one test he called at 7 pm on a Friday to give us the results and said he wanted us to know the results before the weekend so we were not stressed and could enjoy our weekend.

I have only the highest regard for Dr Dorfman and his team of caring professionals at TriStar Summit. I met Dr Dorfman within an hour of having a heart attack on Christmas and I am confident that his decisive actions saved my life. Admission, evaluation and testing was accomplished quickly and smoothly followed by scheduling for bypass surgery the following day. Two months later, I am enrolled in cardiac rehab, feeling strong and doing great. Dr Dorfman gets ten stars from me.

Absolutely love Dr. Dorfman. He always answers any/all questions, he never makes me feel stupid or old. He never rushes me thru our visit and is always positive, caring and supportive. He tells me - straight out - what is going on and how 'we' need to handle it. And I feel like we are a team, working together for my benefit! The staff is the same! Always friendly, supportive and never gets cross with questions I am sure they have answered a million times. Two thumbs up - from the heart! truly

I have moderate to severe aortic stenosis. My first echocardiogram was in 2007. When I moved to TN in 2013, Dr Kreth began monitoring my condition. Both he and Dr Dorfman have said my echocardiogram in June may show this Summer to be our best window of opportunity to use the less invasive TAVR to replace my valve. Dr Dorfman understands my situation and is taking over where Dr Kreth left off. I am pleased with his knowledge and compassion. I feel confident that I’m in good hands.

I had a very positive experience when I visited Dr. Dorfman for an initial visit. He is a good listener and answered my questions so that I could understand him. I highly recommend him to others seeking cardiac care. I was scheduled for an appointment in a reasonable length of time. In the office, the waiting time to see the doctor was short enough to suit me. The staff was friendly and courteous and listened to my history and recorded necessary information for my records.

I never met or heard of Dr. Dorfman until I had a heart attack. He came to the ER to help me. I have now known him and been his patient since April 20014. Through a stint and medication he has gotten my life back to better than normal. He is one of the nicest Doctors I've ever met, treats me like a friend not a medical illiterate. I recommend him to anyone who needs the best. Roy G. Tobler
