Very knowledgeable and did a biopsy after suspecting melanoma under the toe nail. His suspicion of melanoma was confirmed and treatment caught it in the early stage. It resulted in a partial amputation but removed the melanoma. Very thankful to Dr Dorfman for his expertise and treatment.

As a first time patient to podiatry, I highly recommend Dr. Dorfman. Office staff is friendly and helpful. My concerns were addressed in a timely manner with the least invasive solution along with follow up plan if necessary. I feel better already.
