He could have been more interested in my well being. Seeming he already had enough for the day, didn’t ask much questions. Didn’t bother to go into detail about my Pryor medical care. It was more like an unwanted visit inhis part. Definitely the most awkward doctor visit I’ve ever had. Will not be recommending him to any family/friends or my viewers.

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 histime, 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.
