Dr. Cortez is very thorough & patient and always has time for questions. You never feel like you are being rushedout of the office. I have never had a problem getting a same day appointment for unanticipated situations. He has even given us his cell phone number to call him on weekends/evenings in case we had questions when our son was ill.
