Dr Ortega has been my primary care doc for 4 years. She has never been rude or condescending in any way. I believe she is an excellent doc, always takes time to discuss any topics I ask about.

Dr. Ortega was incredibly condescending, demeaning and rude. Never once during my physical did she ask if I had any concerns to discuss. She didn't even allow me to talk - She talked AT me for an hour. I am 15 lbs over ideal weight for my height. She literally said to me I want you to journal every thing you eat so at the end of the week you can see every chocolate bar and cookie you ate and reflect on why you are obese. Never once asking about my diet or exercise level.

I am new to the area, I chose to make an appointment b/c ratings were ok . Since day 1 she had been very insensitive with me. The last few times I had to see her, were just awful experiences! She was very rude I felt rushed out. Never had I been made to feel like less of a person. I cannot comprehend why she would be this way with me. Her body language just read, Ugh I don't like you let's hurry this up. Twice I had left the office in tears having an anxiety attack. She was awful to me!
