Ratings for Dr. Jason Dorfman
Terrible human being and awful doctor. Saw him 5 years ago for visual symptoms (which I later found out through being investigated by other doctors, were harmless & related to migraine and can be controlled by medication), and he had the audacity, despite me being in obvious tearful distress, told me calmly, even matter-of-factly that "you know migraines can sometimes even make people lose their vision completely, and to go blind"! When I started questioning him about that, he didn't discuss want to discuss this further. Wow! It was really reassuring to hear at the time! Also he did not put the proper amount of anesthetic drops in my eyes to measure the eye pressure, so when he tried to measure my eye pressure I winced away from the machine (since I could feel it touch my eye), and he was like, "yeah, you're not going to let me do it, so you probably won't let me for the other eye as well". Then I had some questions for him, and he was like, "No, its 5 o'clock, end of the day." What kind of person treats people like that??!!! At least his secretary was nice.
I'm asian male. visited dr. dorfman on advice of my family dr. I found him ok, not rude, nor condescending. he checked eye and cornea. gave me a few free eye wash solutions. But I knew that fleas, lice, mites, had gotten in my eyes and damaged the fibers in my eyes, causing floaters and blurred vision. He did not accept my studied 3rd medical sciences opinion, and scars over my arms and legs as evidence. Rather he said it is a symptom of age, and left it at that. So I probably won't be getting any ODSP financial disability impairment, nor insurance support from his HELPFUL ADVICE?!.
I read all the reviews on here. You are going to get a checkup done. Who cares if he did not talk to you. You are seeing him for a reason. Let him do the tests he needs to do and go home. His job is not to be a friend to you. His job is to help you. He helped me, and I am very happy with him. In the end, I may not have made a friend, but my vision is fine. If you want to make small talk, call friend. If you need help with your eyes, see Dr. Jason dorfman.
Unfortunately you can't give 0's and the staff definitely does not deserve a 1, but if I give them more, it will skew his overall result to over 1 and I can't have that. Condescending to say the very least. When I asked to clarify a few things, he said he had already went over everything and ushered me out the door. As a Dr, and a specialist at that, people come to you for your expertise and it doesn't matter if you think you've explained it well - if the patient doesn't understand and just wants to clarify, it's a simple request. I was surprised afterwards by the amount of people who attend his clinic so I thought it was a one-off. But based on all these comments below and the sheer volume of them, he is not worth the trouble. I'm going to request my family Dr to refer me to someone else and stop sending people over to him. His staff was courteous though and I feel sorry for them to have to work with someone like him.
Ophthalmologist Jason K. Dorfman is the biggest jerk ever. Today is the second time I see this Doctor. After waiting for an hour and a half delay, all I got was one of the most condecendant persons I have ever dealt with. Dorfman' attitude towards his patients is horrible. A good doctor help people and do not treat them like just a way to make money. With this idiot you can tell from miles away that he just look at his patients from a money perspective . He suggests a bunch of tests that are not necessary, even if you had it done recently. This office is all about making money. They have all these tests which are not covered at all for OHIP or health insurance companies. Dorfman says things like: "You need to do this test... well if you can't afford it". He asks questions and interrupt you in the middle the your answer just to look that you don't know what you are talking about. He is rude and arrogant to the core. I'm pretty sure he is not as brilliant as he think he is. The staff is terrified of him. You can tell he is a bully and mistreats everybody. He thinks he is better and know more than the rest. He suggested my family Doctor didn't know nothing and asked where was he from based on his last name. Please go to somebody else. Somebody as ignorant and disrespectful shouldn't be your Doctor. He clearly is racist and makes judgments on people based on accents, last names or their on the color of their skin. You are paying for good health care and you are supposed to get it.
The rudest dr I have ever experienced, I actually left the office in tears. Extremely condending and accused me of not wanting to cooperate when I was naturally reacting to something being stuck in my eye when he didn't warn me. I haven't been spoken to in that manner since I was a teenager. Absolutely disgusting. There was a mixup with scheduling and I felt guilt after for telling him, I can only imagine how he treats his staff if that's how he treats patients. I felt scared to be in the room with him by the end of the appointment. Shouldn't be licensed.
