My mother and I had concerns about Dr. Gorbien at her first appointment. After meeting with her for 5 minutes, he told her and me that she was depressed like most of his elderly patients and put her on a depression medicine. Wrong! After he changed most of her medications, I was watching my mother slowly getting weaker & disoriented over a period of about 6 months. Under his care and his recommended medications, I was told that her immune system had weakened and she developed pneumonia and was rushed to the hospital emergency. She finally has a new doctor who is slowly taking her off of Gorbien's recommended drugs and she is regaining her mind & strength. Most doctors I have come in contact with, I could recommend but not this one.

When I lived in Chicago, I knew Dr. Gorbien was a blessing for which I was always grateful. That level of appreciation has not dissipated in the five+ years since I moved to California. He listens to the patient, perhaps for a hidden clue, and possesses deep analytical skills to see the whole patient picture. I'm saving up to travel back for one last check-up before the final check out.
