Bad office experience. Excellent doctor.

Pinched nerve in neck and had agonizing pain down arm and into hand. Was sent to him by orthopedic surgeon for an epidural. Office is in a poor neighborhood and though many people people have legitimate problems I'm sure a lot are just trying to get drugs. Your crammed in a room with not the finest people with the line out the door and down the hall. Front desk woman very abrupt and not nice. Probably because she's use to taking a lot of crap from people. After a 2 hour wait I saw the doctor. After getting what I felt was a short shift he gave me an injection in the neck and had me schedule for an epidural. The woman doing the scheduling was nice. Was very unhappy about the office experience, looked up these reviews and was very unsure about continuing my treatment but the next morning my pain was cut down by 2/3s and I no longer needed my pain meds. Got the epidural, was told to expect results in 3-4 days but woke up the next morning pain free, this after being in a great deal of pain for over 2 months. The office experience is not going to be nice. Expect an incredibly unpleasant and long wait. But the end results were ideal and that's really all that matters in the end.

BUTCHER

He is the worse doctor that I have ever seen. I came a hair away from loosing my life because of this doctor,and I use the word doctor sparingly. He is a butcher and it is about the money with him. He does not care what he does to his patients,Someone MUST shut him down...

Terrible. Don't go.

Most unprofessional doctor I have ever seen. Seems very sketchy. Quick to take our copay with little to no examination. Gave us two bogus perscriptions the pharmacy could not fill.

Worst experience with a Doctor in my entire life

The office in Mercy Fitzgerald is the dirtiest office I've ever been in, so much so that we actually had to leave. The staff wears plain cloths (instead of scrubs) and are unprofessional looking and look unkept and disheveled. Dr. Dworkin is rude and abrupt and it seems like he get's people hooked on prescription drugs so they have to keep coming back and are at his mercy..and believe me, he KNOW'S it, too. He get's more people hooked on drugs than he does actually curing them and I personally feel he needs to be investigated by the Medical Association as I feel he has no morals or concerns for human beings. The lines are out in the halls with people addicted to drugs just waiting for their prescriptions and the workers have to walk by them and get harassed on the way into the office. He wanted to do surgery on my neck to "go in there and look around", and when I told him my mom died from anastesia he smiled and said "maybe she died of something else". Personally, he's the biggest piece of bleep I ever met in my life and wouldn't go back to him if he was the last Dr. on earth.

Turned completely off

I was first turned off by the receptionist who after finishing her personal conversation, looked at me and said, "Name?" I was only there as a referral to get tested for surgery. After about an hour, I was taken to a room where I waited another 40 minutes. That's pretty typical with busy doctors. However, when he came to the room, he asked a few questions about my pain. I was brief thinking he already got my MRI results and referral. He didn't even know why I was there and was offering me medicine and creams. I asked about the test. He was surprised, and said he'd be back. He left for about 20 minutes as my results came in. He did however, thoroughly explain what to expect during the test and noted that the pain would be extreme. He's a very fast mover. Some other reviews describe him as pushy, which I can see. He must have millions of patients as I am researching just how many office locations there are or were. This doctor is not for me. I was extremely turned off by my experience. I am not searching for drugs but rather an end to pain. Overall, he's a nice guy and charismatic. He offered me food and beverages while I waited.
