Dr. Nicholas Dorah's Ratings
He knows his stuff, explains clearly and never talks down to me, and is very polite and friendly. He used to lack a bit on his punctuality, but has really improved on this as of late. He is straight up, to the point, very accommodating- nothing more you could ask for. I have nothing but good things to say about him!
Dr Dorah is excellent with my daughter. His one secretary Barb is super nice but the other one is just down right rude about everything. His punctuality is lacking but other then that I find he is good with my child
Dr Dorah is great, he always finds time to squeeze us in if our daughter is sick or we are worried about something. He has always taken his time to answer our questions & is very gentle with our daughter. She might hate needles but she always has a smile for him.
Dr Dorah was by far THE rudest doctor I have ever encountered. He treated all my concerns like I was an idiot. When we brought our son for his first well-baby visit and denied vaccinations, he literally told us he could not be his doctor anymore because he "didn't know how to treat him without vaccinating" .... Uhm, hello? The same way doctors have been treating children for centuries before vaccines were ever around!!?!... He was extremely rude to us, he outright lied to us when we gave him our reasons for not vaccinating, and he was just all around a pompous jerk. No doctor should ever talk down to a parent like they are stupid for voicing their opinions or concerns. If you are planning to not vaccinate, he is definitely the wrong doctor for you. If you have concerns about your child's health, he is probably still the wrong doctor for you.
The worst experience with a doctor ever. He sent my daughter for tests and said to have the results sent to him. He is my sons doctor and said he would take on my daughter as a patient now aswell.The day of her appointment they cancelled after I took the day off to take her. When I rescheduled the appointment they couldn't find her test results so I had to spend hours on the phone tracking them down and having them resent to his office. I then received a call hours later saying he would not see her because she did not have a referral from another doctor. It was him that told us to come see him. Now we have to start this several month process all over again with another doctor. Terrible experience!.
In one word...Awesome. He takes the time to discuss everthing. I always get in same day with a phone call. I understand that sometimes you have to wait a bit more than I would like...(never more than a half an hour) but I have to remember that he does rounds in the morning before coming in and he spends quality time with the kids.... everything I expect with my kids. He is cautious, has no problem referring specialists, yet is not an alarmist. He has young kids of his own which I believe gives him the compassion that makes him special. He's the best, just what my kids deserve!!
He's very sweet and kind. Very thorough and answers all of your questions. He's not quick with the antibiotics either. We really like him; went through a couple of pediatricians until we were comfortable with someone.
I 100% recommend him to anyone with children. He is very knowledgable, careing and concerned. He spends the time answereing all questions and concerns, and will whenever necessary get you in to see him when your child is sick. I believe the wait times are due to the fact he cares enough to fit sick kids in to his schedual, even omitting his own lunch break. I hate the waits, but understand that sometimes, I help create them when he gladly squeezes me in when my child is sick.... and when I ask lots of questions! He is also very busy checking on his pt's that are in the hospital (he does that in the am before coming to the office) and understand that due to more pressing illnesses of other children in hospital sometimes he is late (my daughter was once one of those sick kids in hospital, and I appreciated he was there to check on her in the mornings!!). He is also on call a lot in the ER to look after sick kids coming into the ER, and he does a fantastic job with them!!
