My back-injury in a car-accident, and work-related injury forced me to see many different Chiropractors, Some of them consider them self "Specialists" In last 40 Years I went trough many of them, with poor results, One of those "Specialists" actually injured me, where I needed treatments for his "treatment" I had to give up on chiropractic treatments all together for 6 years, When I found Dr. Patrick Dorman (last year) my first visit showed me that he is a different bread of chiropractors, my search is over. Dr. Dorman is qualified, accommodating, and very professional, I would recommend him to my family, and friends.

World class! When I went to him for the first time, it was after seeing tons of chiropractors sometimes twice a week. The drugs that I was prescribed either made me dizzy, nauseous, or otherwise not myself. I had no alternative in my mind than to spend money on massages and chiropractors. One doctor, who saw me several times a week, actually said "It sucks to be you." He was at the bottom of his profession. Dr. Dorman is at the top. I was referred to Dr. Dorman by a fabulous massage therapist. Dr. Dorman literally made my kundalini energy flow again. In other words, he connected my upper body with my lower body on a physical level. This connection, over time, has made me think clearer and my facialist says that my skin is "sufficiently hydrated." In my thirties no one ever said that! I have definitely slowed down the aging that had been in progress. His referrals have also been top notch. I pray that he stays sane and healthy to continue taking care of all his clients in the manner that Ricardo and the others have described. A rare find who continues to get better by improving himself.

Dr. Dorman is super. He is the end of my search for a San Diego Chiropractor. Bam! My very discerning (and I might mean picky) friend recommended him. I'm very picky too and Dr. Dorman is a really great chiropractor. He gives you a massage at the start of each session. The massage breaks up adhesions and prepares you for the adjustment. The adjustments are thorough. He's not the guy who has 5 minutes to say hi, adjust you and eject you from the table. You can go anywhere in town for that. He is the guy who spends the time it takes to relax the body and nervous system. His hands are gold! Also, he's affordable and he sees kids as well. Yay!
