Specialties

Dr. Dennis V Worthington has the following 2 specialties

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

Quality Worth Wating For

Dr. Worthington is very caring and compassionate. I never had to wait inordinate amounts of time for my appointments; but I do understand the nature of the business and know that sometimes people, appointments, surgeries, etc. take more time than allotted. I also know that if it was my case that required more time, I wouldn't want my doctor to be rushed into cutting corners. So....all you self-important people who just cant wait for quality health care...sit down, wait your turn politely, and shut up.

The waiting time was extensive, I did however go see him. I was not too happy with waiting for such a long time each time I had gone though.

Very long wait time

Twice I had to wait over an hour to see him with no notification from his staff that he was running so far behind. Terrible waste of my time sitting in his office waiting. One other time I had to wait for approximately 35 minutes. So, over 3 visits I had nearly 2:45 of waiting.
