Dr. Margaret J Dorfman has the following 2 specialties
A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.
A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

I had been misdiagnosed for many, many years and was miserable. I was referred to Dr. Dorfman and within a few sessions she corrected my diagnosis and gave me the first treatment plan that truly began to work. It takes time to fine tune medications, therapy, self help styles but I am so much happier now. I have been able to contact her several different ways. Depending on my needs, along with her schedule of other patients, she has done an extraordinary job of helping me. She has gone out of her way to provide alternative and very real solutions to some difficult problems. I have never felt neglected by her or Mr. Chandler. They truly care and patience....they have a lot. Dr. Dorfman has brought the sunshine back into my life, why would I go anywhere else??? I would send my closest friend to Dr. Dorfman, knowing that she would be in great hands.
I have been to Triangle Psychiatric Services for the last three months. Dr. Dorfman does not feel a need to add a secretary to her staff. As a result, the lack of basic communication between herself and her patients is appalling. She and her husband/therapist are quite slow to return phone calls. Forget about ever having someone actually answer the phone when trying to make an appt. Husband Stephen can't quite navigate the billing system. There again, if you should have questions about charges to your account good luck getting a response. I found Dr. Dorfman to be aloof and somewhat of a snob. I went to see her help relieve stress and to feel better. She failed on both counts to be of any help.
Dr. Dorman is one of the best MDs I have ever worked with, as either a patient or as a practitioner. Excellant follow up and monitoring of both specific problems and overall health and well-being. Excellant skills with anxiety & depression related problems Exceptionally knowledgable about medications- especially about potential interactions with other perscribed. medications, specific foods, and with herbal suppliments.Very honest.
