One of the worst experiences I ever had with a doctor. First all pack a lunch you will be in the waiting room for hours. Then when I finally was taken to an exam room I was left there forever before he finally cane in . He was the most arrogant rudest doctors I ever met. Having an autoimmune disease I have seen a lot of doctors over the years and my experience with this doctor was the worse. I left in tears he spoke to me badly even having raised in voice at me.

Dr. Ordonez had my best interests in mind. He ordered the appropriate tests to determine the best treatment for me. He thoroughly explained my options, risks associated with the treatments, and expected result of the treatment.

Dr. Ordonez has a wonderful calming influence as he sits & talks you through everything. He has operated 2x on my son in 15 years and we would never choose another neurosurgeon .

After having my spine punctured by another dr in Norfolk I saw Joe & with just 1 appt he knew exactly what needed to be done he scheduled 3 other tests that he does on all canidates for surgery because he is very thorough &found that I also needed neck surgery that the other dr blew off as oh it's the beginning symptoms of carpal tunnel and w/the extra care Joe did he found it wasn't the case & did my neck surgery first & then my back even though he had torn his acl that am tripping on a toy

Best Neurosugeon in the world. Dr Ordonez has performed two sugeries on me. The first in September 2015 was Cervical Fusion of the C5-C6. The second in November 2015 was to remove a tumor from my spinal cord and fusion of the L3-L4. Both surgeries were auccessful thanks to the skills and knowledge Dr. Orsonez posses. He absolutely has the best bed side manner of any doctor i have ever been to. He genuinely cares about his patienta and there well being. He will be my dr as long as he is pra
