26/06/14 5 5 5 5 Dr.Dorsi was very respectful and attentive right from the beginning. He was patient and took his time to listen to me. I have had a previous back surgery and was still in chronic pain. Dr Dorsi and I decided to go ahead and do a multi level fusion split into two desperate surgeries ,which is no small task, during which he was nothing but caring and professional all wrapped up in human being. Dr. Dorsi is passionate about his career and loves what he does and loves his patients and it shows.His staff is courteous and friendly as well. I am forever greatful to have found him. I am two weeks out after my second surgery with him and I already feel a 100 % than I did before the surgeries !! I have a new hope on life :)

02/07/13 5 5 5 5 AMAZING DOCTOR. I was suffering from low back pain for nearly a decade. I had previous surgery that did not help. He was highly recommended. I felt very comfortable with him immediately. We tried some injections and ultimately lumbar fusion. Now 3 months after surgery I am off of all pain medications and feel great!!!

26/04/13 1 1 1 3 dr.dorsi and his staff are not that great, he was taking personal calls when I was trying to talk to him about my back he most be remodling his house, and his staff never got back to me about follow up appointment regarding my facture , and to read the x-rays that he order, they had over a week to put the order in and when I went in to get them done they did not know anything about it and the sad part is they are a floor down from them, the lady at the x-ray place was a little up set..I'm trying to get my mri report and they can't find it.  Respond

31/12/12 5 5 5 5 Dr. Dorsi Surgically fix my sisters VP Shunt. For those that don't know, it's a valve hooked to the brain area. She had always been seen for neurological issues/procedures @ UCLA time was a luxury we did not have as her symptoms grew incredibly worse by the sec. Skeptical & worried, due to her complicated anatomy & health history we were hesitant her surgery be done here until Dr. Dorsi explained what needed to be done with such detail, patience and respect. He assured us he would send us to UCLA immediately if something worsened or didn't go as he suspected her surgery was a success. God put us in the right hands she was home the next day and now will he will be her local neurologist. Thank you Dr. Dorsi.  Respond
