My husband was seen as a new pt. yesterday. Needless to say we were very impressed. Dr Krishnamoorthy was so respectful, kind, engaging and very knowledgeable. He took so much time to examine and get to know my husband’s complicated health hx. I might add the whole staff was very kind and thorough.

Yes I would recommend Dr. Winston Ortiz to family and friends. He has been my doctor through numerous neurological situations and always I've experienced him to be attentive and kind, and above all, competent. He gets to the source of problems quickly and his referrals, when needed, are excellent.

I have been to eleven doctors in the past fifteen years but got relief for my pain. One visit and I was actually listened to. Within two weeks, I felt like a new person. My husband said he has his old wife back. I cannot thank Dr. Castro enough for her help.

I feel like I’m on the perfect path to the future. Based on my status relative to an appointment, I am appropriately guided to the next step (test) or remain in a holding status until physical changes occur that warrant a path to another test! Very excellent guidance and monitoring by Dr. Bavikati!

Decent guy , had no problems with him personally but not a good doctor at all in my opinion. Got an MRI done for severe headaches and he refused to call me with the results, instead made me do a pricey in person visit almost an entire month later to tell me MRI found nothing.

Dr. Kelch was the best doctor I've ever had, she was my physician and my son's for approximately 10 years, until we relocated out of state. She listened intently, cared, and was always very thorough.
