Verified Patient Reviews
From the moment I walked in the office, every single person working in the office was polite, courteous, helpful, friendly and kind. Dr. Ortiz was very thoughtful in his assessments. He was a very attentive listener. He was generous with his time, was not in a rush or distracted. I truly appreciated my experience in his office, not only with Dr. Ortiz but also with the five additional staff members that I interacted with. I would give more stars if I could. If possible I will stay with Dr. Ortiz as my primary care doctor for the duration of my life. I appreciated my visit that greatly.
Good man. Very thourough and caring and solution oriented without just jumping to conclusions and doling out meds.
