What People Say About Dr. Alex Ortega, MD
Reply
Horrible experience, Dr. Ortega is non-existent in the office. If you ask to speak to the doctor the horrible staff tries to answer your question instead of the doctor! It's a horrible place and they show minimal concern at best. They do not want to help you. If you have issues they could care less about helping you. I doubt they actually understand the term 'health care'. The operative word being 'care'.
