How likely are you to recommend Dr. Dorchak?

(Select your rating)
Over a 5-year period, numbness, tingling, & pain spread from my feet, up my legs, and into my hips (mainly my left side). After a year of back injections, physical therapy, and pilates, I pursued a surgical solution. I met with 4 surgeons--all talented specialists--and chose Dr. Dorchak: his approach seemed the most appropriate for my situation. Hip & leg pain was gone when I awoke from surgery. Ankle pain decreased 95% within 2 weeks. Foot discomfort down only 10%, but nerves need time.
