Dr. Dornfeld was very professional and performed a quick analysis and recommended a treatment plan, including paying attention to diet (which I think was important as well) .Overall, a great experience and I feel better after visiting him.

The office was very run down, old, and not that clean-feeling, but Dr. Dornfeld was very nice and personable.
