I can recommend her enough! While she is very professional, she is warm and thoughtful. Her advice is always clear and easy to understand. It sounds strange, but I always look forward to seeing her. She is a wonderful doctor.

I have been visiting professor and doctor Dorota Dworakowska frequently for a few months due to my endocrine problems. And I must say that so far she is one of the best doctors I have ever met in my life! I'm very grateful to doctor Dorota. In a few words, she is not only a brilliant specialist with an overwhelming knowledge in her field and the medicine in general but also very supportive and empathetic person, who made me feel easy and in good hands. I can point out that doctor Dorota provides exceptional communication. Every time I had all the information in easy to follow form and during my consultations, I always had an understanding of what is going on and all the next steps and how exactly my endocrine system works. She always gave me complete answers to all my questions. She always was available to contact in case of any extra request from insurance\need of urgent actions. Also, doctor Dorota's communication is beyond amazing in cases of collaborating with specialists in related areas like cardiology, breast specialists and imaging. I find it very important as the endocrine system faults can cause multiple symptoms in other systems. With her fully informative letters and documentation, all other specialists were able to know the situation from the endocrine point of view and it saved a lot of time and, hopefully, helped to find the proper treatment. My case was pretty unusual and complicated and for a few years doctors were not able to find the underlying problem, but doctor Dorota found it very fast. And she communicated with the biggest specialist of the similar disease about my case. So, for sure, I always had the best possible care and the most relevant information. Absolutely recommend!

Professor Dworakowska is an exceptional practitioner in the field of endocrinology. She is highly detailed and methodological in her assessments and conveys diagnostic data in easy-to-understand form. She is an empathetic listener and explores all avenues to reach a definitive diagnosis. Her ongoing care is beyond reproach and she instills complete confidence from start to finish.
