Faribault, MN |
After speaking with the person who schedules appointments for Dr.Dorman a couple of times, she told me flat out the he will not see my teenage son and to find someone else to go to. She was cold and rude and did not give me a valid reason for turning me away. I was left dumbfounded when I hung up the phone.

Excellent patient care. He took amazing care of my mom from 2003-2010. It was the first time in 30 years of living with RA that her care was truly carefully managed and she had limited flares ups or pain. We would recommend him, only, to anyone dealing with RA.

Really takes the time at each appointment to listen. Very well informed. I feel comfortable asking questions, and he takes the time to answer them. Great personality. My previous rheumatologist was very dismissive. When I first met with Dr. Dorman I hesitantly brought up some of the concerns the previous doctor dismissed. He listened, told me the specific names/terms of what I described, and explained how they fit into my diagnosis.
