The staff is fast in answering a question and with good treatment.

SHC Patient, Jun 2015

From a pt.'s perspective Dr. Dorigo is one of the most outstanding physicians I've been treated by (and I'm a nurse). I was afraid I was going to be given a devastating diagnosis, and he was not only clinically stellar, but kindly and professionally demonstrated that he understood the stress I was feeling, and really moved the treatment along quickly! I was most grateful!!!

SHC Patient, Jun 2015

Very happy with Dr. Dorigo. He seems like he really cares about you as a person.

SHC Patient, May 2015

Good.

SHC Patient, May 2015

Dr. Dorigo is excellent. Very happy to be his patient.

SHC Patient, May 2015

This was a second opinion, the entire staff was very helpful and considerate. I was VERY pleased with the visit.

SHC Patient, May 2015

Everything was perfect.

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

Lab results where not given to me until I e-mailed thru "Myhealth". So my concern level was heightened.

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

Dr. Dorigo is the most caring and intelligent doctor I have ever had! Thank you Dr. Dorigo.

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

Dr. Dorigo is an amazing doctor, very caring, knowledgeable and friendly!

SHC Patient, Jan 2015

Follow through post appt. has been disappointing. No one has done what they said other than order tests but leaving coordination to me when told otherwise.

SHC Patient, Nov 2014

Dr. Dorigo is an excellent doctor. I like the way he treats me as a patient.

SHC Patient, Oct 2014

I love him.

SHC Patient, Oct 2014

I liked that both Dr. Dorigo and his nurse called the next day after surgery to check on my well-being.

SHC Patient, Sep 2014

Dr. Dorigo is the most caring and intelligent doctor I encountered throughout my cancer journey. He is the biggest blessing to me throughout this journey!

SHC Patient, May 2014

Dr. Oliver Dorigo went above and beyond with patience and understanding with me as I completely emotionally, fell apart after my diagnosis. He took more time than he should have.

SHC Patient, Apr 2014

Good experience.

SHC Patient, Mar 2014

I did my "homework" on Dr. Dorigo before my appointment and was impressed but once I met him - I knew I was in excellent "hands".

SHC Patient, Feb 2014

He is always attentive and willing to listen & help.

SHC Patient, Jan 2014

Utmost respect for Dr. Dorigo! Knowledgeable, caring, shows concern, genuine & thorough.
