Maryland Heights, MO |
I felt that he was always in a hurry. After having a colonoscopy with him, I was diagnosed with T3 colorectal cancer by another GI doctor, 14 months after my original colonoscopy with Dr. Cort.

Not interested in listening to symptoms he deemed "didn't pertain to this", so I went undiagnosed with hiatal hernia for another year. Especially after he did not look for it during an upper GI; even with family history.

Three of my family members have been to Dr. Cort ( myself included). He is a compassionate and wonderfully talented physician. He diagnosed colon cancer in a family member and quickly provided us answers and assistance. He saved the life of my family member. He does not treat patients like a "number" but rather a human being with emotions. I have known countless physicians through the years due to my career and Dr. Cort is by far the most caring, compassionate and excellent doctor I have met.

I have been a patient of Dr. Cort for over 20 years. I find him to be an outstanding doctor. He has treat my family members and has always been very responsive.
St Charles, MO |
Dr. Cort is very knowledgeable; but I almost left his office before he came in, as I had sat there for nearly 50 minutes without anyone even coming in to check on me! Some of my concerns were minimized and glossed over, or met with a very short response. This is not typical of Dr. Cort in the past; he is just way over-booked with patients. I was disappointed in my visit with him. Also, one of the nurses was rude. I may be looking for another dr.
