Dr. Michael M Dvorkin, MD
What a wonderful doctor!!! Mom was experiencing excruciating pain in right hip, had a scan and diagnosed with a mild fractured hip and arthritis. She was referred to two orthopedic surgeons. We called the 1st doctor and was told she couldn't get an appointment for two weeks. Then we called Dr Dvorkin's office, explained the situation to receptionist, who put us on hold and talked to the Doc. She got back on the phone and said come in now....Wow!!! Mom went to the office, he reviewed the scan and said he could do surgery that Monday, this was on Tuesday. He was willing to rearrange his schedule. Being skeptical, at 80, and never meeting this Dr. before, she said she would wait. We researched Dr D and found he was very reputable. Two weeks later, Dec. 5, 2016 she went under the knife. He did such a great job, she was up the next day, walking on a walker and was released within 2 days. She was off her pain meds within 4 days. Today, Jan 5th was 30 days, our 2nd follow up and she is doing great! Dr. D is so informative (explaining every detail) and he is so caring and understanding. His staff is very remarkable also, attentive and friendly. They went the extra mile initially talking to the doctor and scheduling Mom right away. Mom was under a lot of stress deciding whether to live with the pain or get the surgery. She is thankful she made the right decision, having the surgery and getting the right doctor. You rock Dr. Dvorkin....Thank you!!!

His humor and approach to medicine relieves fears you may have, he is quick to respond to any emergency and keeps his patients informed. If an appointment needs rescheduled, it is done without hesitation. I have found that even if you haven't seen him for several years, he remembers who you are, makes you feel more like a friend instead of patient. And even if you haven't even seen him as a patient yet that day; his hello, will help you relax until you feel better just by saying hello and seeing his smile. RNW

I would like to say this practice is composed of wonderful caring people... For example, Shirley Critzer, Practice Manager, is a thoughtful, altruistic professional who went out of her way [and beyond her job description] to help and inspire my 7-year old daughter's medical career aspirations. This is a perfect example of effective medical practice leadership in the community through inspiration, selfless service and encouragement. Thank you, Shirley!

Tips & Advices
Radiological exams can be either diagnostic or interventional. Diagnostic exams are intended to detect the presence of a certain condition, like a bone fracture or a tumor inside the body. Interventional radiology uses imaging techniques to assist in treating a condition, usually through surgery, but the procedure itself is not intended to have a direct impact on the outcome of the disease.
The exact process of an exam will vary depending on the specific type of imaging procedure and the goal of the test. Patients will usually be situated near a machine that will direct the appropriate form of energy to the part of the body being examined. Technicians help patients perform the necessary steps to complete the process.
Most imaging exams do not have any immediate side effects. The most important side effect of many forms of radiology is the exposure to small doses of radiation. In almost all cases, a single exam will deliver a radiation dose that is too low to have any effect, but over repeated exposure, the risk of developing cancer from this radiation increases. Radiologists take several precautions to limit exposure on behalf of patients as well as themselves and their staff.
Results from an imaging procedure may be available almost instantly (as with X-rays and ultrasound), or might take a few minutes to develop. However, in some cases it will take a radiologist additional time to analyze and report on the images collected, so results may be delayed by a few hours or days.
Radiologists can perform a variety of imaging procedures depending on their specialty. Common examples include:
  • X-rays.
  • Computed tomography (CT scans).
  • Ultrasound.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
  • Positron emission tomography (PET).
  • Interventional radiology: Using specialized imaging techniques to assist with surgery, either immediately before or in the process of a surgical procedure.
