Dr. Sorchik explained that patients can expect to feel welcome and comfortable and be thoroughly involved in their treatment.
“It is my intention to ensure none of my patients feel pushed along or dismissed when they bring up a concern. I will always do my best to listen entirely and explain my thoughts. It is my goal to build a long term, trusting relationship with every patient as it is extremely important that my patient’s feel comfortable asking me anything,” said Dr. Sorchik.
