He received a bachelor’s degree from the State University of New York at Stony Brook, and a Doctorate of Osteopathy from the New England College of Osteopathic Medicine. Osteopathic medical schools (D.O. degree) train students in all aspects of medicine that are taught in allopathic schools (M.D. degree). Additionally, Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine are trained to use their hands as diagnostic and treatment tools for: enhancing the immune system, improving lymphatic drainage of inflammatory conditions, and alleviating most musculoskeletal conditions.
After graduation from medical school, Dr. Dornfeld became board certified by the American College of Osteopathic Family Physicians. He also has additional training in Travel Medicine, Emergency Medicine and has been certified by DAN (Divers Alert Network) in Diving Medicine. Throughout his medical career, he has been dedicated to diagnosing, treating and helping people by combining traditional with holistic medicine and natural therapies. Dr. Dornfelds expertise in OMT (Osteopathic Manipulative Therapy) speeds his patient’s recovery from most musculoskeletal ailments and makes them feel better.
In 1994 Dr. Dornfeld became Board certified by ACAM (the American College for the Advancement in Medicine). He continues to advance his knowledge and skills in alternative and traditional therapies, and tailors their use to the specific needs of each patient.

Dr. Dornfeld has received, and continues training in courses by DAN! - Defeat Autism Now. Dr Dornfeld recently completed his Fellowship in Autism Spectrum Disorders through The Medical Academy of Pediatric Special Needs (MAPS) and is now on the clinical training faculty training specialists worldwide. His desire for improving children and adults afflicted with Autism Spectrum Disorders, (i.e. Autism ADHD, ADD, Aspergers Syndrome) led him to incorporating Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy into his practice. HBOT has been shown to be of great benefit in many other neurological disorders as well. Family Wellness Center is an approved Provider by the International Hyperbaric Association.
In addition to his dynamic medical practice, Dr. Dornfeld is also a Clinical Instructor of Family Medicine for the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey-School of Osteopathic Medicine. He shares his experience and skills with medical students, who are invited to learn in his office. Among his favorite lessons for his students and patients is that the term "doctor" means "teacher". To this end he always tries to teach his patients proper eating habits, combined with proper exercise. This, plus reducing or correcting heavy metal and environmental pollutant accumulation, combine to help preserve his patient’s ability to fight the aging process, while reducing their risks of developing cardiovascular problems or cancer.
