What People Say About Dr. Anthony Ortegon, MD
Reply
I was getting recurring pneu-monias over a 10 year period; the most recent last April resulted in sepsis. I had taken several pneu-monia vaccines, flu shots every year but the doctors did not know what was causing it. Finally Dr. Ortegon saw me in ICU and diagnosed me with swallowing disorder. It's a complex problem and I'm still working on it. But I am grateful to Dr. O for finally figuring it out. The admin, however, and other clinics could work on more effective communication and followup.

I have been a patient of Dr. Ortegon for near bout 3 yrs. He is a great physician, great listener, diagnostics very good, BUT - the clinker in the whole thing is the office staff. They are non-responsive, make plenty of errors, do not return phone calls, do not answer e-mails. Therefore, I am switching groups and hoping for the better.
