Professional Statement
Early in life, Carmel Dorsey was taught TO BE OF SERVICE. She decided there was no better way to manifest that motto than to work in the field of medicine. Her journey began as a Physician Assistant in 1998 and has yet to end. Carmel's alma mater's mission statement embraces serving the ill and underserved. Her profession has allowed her to do just that and has brought her great satisfaction. The field of Family Medicine has allowed Carmel to form relationships with patients of all age ranges and has given her a sense of balance as a practitioner. Her approach to practicing medicine is simple:listen to your patient, treat them with respect, apply your knowledge to their complaint as best you can, and then listen to the patient again. It is a recipe for success that has worked for many years. Carmel is married and loves spending time with her husband and two children. She is a native Californian and looks forward to finishing out her career with the Providence/Axminster family.

Upset that [...] my daughter had a 9:15 appointment time and I a 9:30 with Dorsey & the 10:00 o'clock patient was seen 1st & when I inquired after he was called in @ 9:30 why she hadn't been seen yet I was told "they were waiting for a room to open". She wasn't called in until 9:45 & by approx. 9:55 I had to ask myself if they were going to call me. Secondly, I was moved into another exam room away from my daughter which has never been done because I am her medical representative so I wasn't in the room with her and this is in her charts. Thirdly, I've seen troubling lab results in my "MYChart" [...] and I'm not getting any response to my inquires about these particular results. Furthermore, I have been trying for months, along with my pharmacy, to receive a 90 day supply of my [...] however, though I'm constantly told a 90 day supply has been sent to the pharmacy [...] they still receive a 30 day prescription with refills.

I thought that I was seen by the X-ray technologist very quickly. However, I felt like there was no closure after the X-rays and the lab work had been completed. I wanted to know what my X-ray revealed.
