Showed up at 9:26 for a 9:30am appointment. Insurance was verified at 10am, sent through to Dr. Cortes's assistant shortly after, answered a few identity and medical history questions, went to get an x-ray, answered a few identity questions,finished x-ray at 10:45, saw Dr. Cortes at 10:50am. Very warm and knowledgeable doctor who projected calm confidence; made me feel like I was in very good hands with regards to my hand injury. It didn't feel like we rushed through anything, but we ran through the injury and previous treatment, did and explained some quick checks for things like tendonitis, looked at a new x-ray and a previous CT scan / x-ray I had brought, and recommended and decided on a course of action in ~15m. Very happy with the overall experience and will certainly be coming back for future checkins.

Dr. Cortes is an excellent doctor who is incredibly knowledgable and passionate. He took the time to explain my diagnosis and solution thoroughly and clearly and was so incredibly patient while I peppered him with questions regarding my thumbinjury. I also want to note that he is a fabulous plastic surgeon as well as he treated my grade school son with a severe laceration to the shin. I can't imagine having any other doctor during this very traumatic time in our lives. He was there every step of the way and went out of his way for our family. Highly highly recommend!

My experience with Dr. Cortes has been excellent. I don't normally write reviews, but my experience with Dr. Cortes has prompted me to do so. I have been seeing Dr. Cortes for a simple botox procedure to treat my hyperhidrosis fornearly two years. The procedure is painless and my results have been great. Dr. Cortes is an thorough, kind and honest physician. I highly recommend him.

I really like Dr Cortes, but I think the office staff was more interested in their own conversations then getting me in to see him. After waiting 45 minutes, I asked "How much longer?" and they looked surprised. I think Igot lost in their operations somehow. But Dr Cortes? Top notch.

What an amazing experience. I was afraid it was going to be horrible. But what an amazing experience. He answered all questions, he followed up all my concerns and also gave me knowledge. I felt emotional inside because someone knew whatI was going thru and didn't rush or deny me but yet accept and encourage me. What a great person. Thank you so much

Dr. Cortes is the best hand doctor out there! His bedside manner is impeccable. I have seen him several times, and for each appointment I felt as if I was both his patient and his student as he educated me aboutmy particular injuries, issues that may arise with all parts of the hand, and best treatment options. He takes the time to thoroughly explain everything and answer questions, you can tell he truly cares. Do yourself a favor and book with him!

Dr. Cortes was extremely thorough in examining my arm and the various nerves impacted. He carefully explained to me what he was doing and used the internet to show me diagrams of what he was examining. He offered a course ofaction and alternatives. He clarified what I might expect from the procedure, if we decided to do it, and he recommended several places to get an MRI (as well as where not to go.) Finally, he arranged the nerve testing to happened right then, right there. Well done!
