What People Say About Dr. Andrew Cortez, DO

Dr. Cortez became my mother's nephrologist after she moved to the area. Her kidneys were at stage 5 Kidney failure and she was put on dialysis. Before seeing her in the hospital, Dr. Cortez took the time to read ALL her records from other hospitals. My mother's previous nephrologist (in another state) had said that kidney stents are not proven to work, etc. and wouldn't recommend them. Dr. Cortez did recommend the stents and now NO dialysis! He is a problem solver and a lifesaver for my mom.

This man is an excellent Nephrologist. Plain and simple. After being diagnosed with acute renal failure due to a severe allergic reaction to clindamycin. He did everything going he could and finally managed to get me kidneys to bounce back along with my sodium levels. I was quite literally on my death bed when admitted to the hospital and he took great care of me. From a creatinine score of 10.9 on admittance too 3.1 and a sodium level of 102 to 146. He totally changed my disposition.
