I would never use this doctor again. My daughter came in for tonsil stones and infections. The doctor gave us a choice to remove tonsils completely or get them shaved down. After doing our research we opted for complete removal to prevent the tonsils from growing back. We went back and he said he would only do shaving. We did it and now she has the same issue. He saw her and almost stabbed her in the throat examining her. This was a terrible experience. Now she has to get the surgery again.

I thought the experience was great. Dr. Bortniker was great with explaining what was going on my child. Didn't wanted to talk about surgery until we knew we needed it 100%. He squeezed us in for a followup. Offer to speak after hours if I had any questions or concerns. I thought he was great with my 3.5 year old.

I was able to get an appointment right away. Filled out forms in advance because they have them online which was really convenient. When I arrived I was promptly greeted and there was almost no waiting at all. Dr. Bortniker was very pleasant and able to quickly assess the symptoms to isolate the problem. Then he was generous with explaining causes and treatment plan. It did not take long for me to feel better. I also received follow up care instructions to ensure I was progressing as expected.

The office staff was courteous, polite and efficient - the physician - however, not so! I am truly disappointed in his overall deportment - consequently - I cancelled my next appointment.
