I waited a month to see her, then she canceled the day before my appointment. Then she took off on a month long vacation with no one to cover for her. After three months, today I finally had an MRI done through another healthcare network to see if I have pancreatic cancer. Hope you enjoyed your vacation!

Upon calling for first appointment, the lady scheduling was rude. I didn't understand the referral process. Some doctors will schedule even if they haven't received referral others need paper copy in the office. The lady acted like she didn't want to explain the process. When she finally did schedule me, the earliest appointment was 2 1/2 months out! Three weeks after I scheduled I received 2 texts, 2 emails and a phone call telling me the appointment needed to be canceled and someone would call

Dr. Bortuzzo displayed the most unprofessional behavior I have ever seen in a physician. She made an initial examination sound like my patient was in serious trouble and told us to take my client to the hospital outpatient lab for a blood draw and then page her overhead if there was a problem. She never answered our pages and then had a temper tantrum IN FRONT OF THE PATIENT when she came to see her and said that my client should NOT have been admitted and stormed out without writing orders.

I would recommend Dr. Bortuzzo without reservation. She is thorough in her history and physical. Her communication skills are concise and direct.

I took my daughter to her on a referral from our PC. HORRIBLE experience from beginning to end. Wouldn't allow me to go back with my daughter, then did. Accused my daughter of eating after midnight and smoking pot because she was combative when they put her under for her endoscopy and there was food in her stomach after 12 hours. Isn't it possible that if there is food in your stomach after that long, that THERE IS A PROBLEM? When I asked for the test results, we were discharged as patients

Dr. Bortuzzo was wonderful. She was patient while listening and didn't jump to conclusions or push pills on me. I appreciate a doctor with good bedside manner and who searches for the problem causing symptoms, not just the band aid to cover the symptoms up. One of the best doctors I have ever been to see.

She was kind but to the point with no fluffing what she thinks is the problem/cause. Scheduled colonoscopy, my only interaction with her besides initial appt but was wonderful and caring. Made me feel comfortable and explained all results to my husband and answered all questions . The whole office staff at both facilities were super nice and I would definitely return to see her if needed. Don't let her forwardness scare you, I found it refreshing!
