It took forever to get an appointment. The receptionist placed me on hold for 15 minutes. When I called back she again placed me on hold. She was rude, condescending, insensitive, and then laughed at me when I told her that I was in pain. She had no work ethics, she cut me off and told me that now it was her lunch brake and I should call her tomorrow. I have never experienced such a horrible experience with a receptionist in my life. Where do they find these people?! I won't even get started as to when I finally went to the office and the treatment I received from the staff. Dr. Dorsi ordered more tests, will give an updated as to treatment .
I was diagnosed with GBM (Glioblastoma Multiforme, a high-grade and rather deadly form of brain cancer) last June. The good news is I have a truly amazing neurosurgeon right here in Ventura, Dr. Michael Dorsi, as well as a veritable team of wonderful and caring medical and alternative folks. While I was recovering my husband's back went out and Dr. Dorsi performed an XLIF and he has been pain free since!!!
The tumor began to recur and in March I had a second surgery with Dr. Dorsi. This time he implanted Gliadel wafers, nickel-sized discs that emit Carmustine, a chemo agent, directly into the tumor cavity - so no systemic chemo effects.These little gems are biodegradable, so depending on potential (and expected) tumor regrowth, my plan is to work with Dr. Dorsi to keep shaving down that tumor as needed.
My current quality of life is excellent, I am still walking 3 to 4 miles most days to keep the cobwebs at bay.
Dr. Dorsi has that gift of being among the best in his specialty AND people skills - excellent communication with both patient and family, "bedside manner", the whole package. A dear friend underwent a 10-hour surgery to repair years of lumbar abuse - he's a contractor, so a very physical job. I heard from the family that it meant so much to them when they received a phone call from the doctor at half time to report that things were going well.
He will be my guy for any further brain work, as well, should it be necessary. I guess you could say I trust him;)
Feel so much better after cervical disc replacement 2 months ago!!! Only surgeon I could find in Ventura county that offers this state of the art technology and is actually takes insurance, a wonderful person very caring and attentive
Dr Dorsi was wonderful! He successfully removed a HUGE schwannoma nerve tumor from my husbands chest with out any nerve damage or complications. He went out of his way to explain everything to us in detail, he was very patient with all our questions and rallied to get my husbands surgery done ASAP, when the hospital wasn't able to schedule him during the week. He was able to get a staff together to get the surgery scheduled on a Saturday morning. 6 weeks post op and my husband is back to his normal self ready to go on a backpacking trip with his son! Thank you Dr Dorsi!
Dr. Dorsi is the best. After being misdiagnosed by two Drs. I ended up not being able to
walk or move and ended up in the emergency room. Lucky me, he was the neurosurgeon on
call. Don't let his young good looks fool you, he is so competent, pleasant and knowledgable.
I woke up from surgery without feeling sick, a little sore but no serious pain and was able
to get up and go home the next day a completely new person. Truly a miracle man. I
can't find enough words to express how great a Dr. he is.
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 :)
Dr Dorsi is the BOMB!! My husband has suffered from back problems, it seems like forever (1965 +). Dr. is a very kind and gentle person - he has made my husband have hope's for a better future and quaility of life...... he is a blessing to us. He is a Dr.s that listens to his patients and cares, really cares about you ......May the sun always shine on you Dr. Lots of Hugs,The Wirsings!
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!!!
