I would highly recommend Dr. Gortner except that he retired last year. It was a crushing blow to me, as he was the most caring, compassionate, is easy to talk to, a very patient-centered doctor of my 71 years. The best doc for me!
Dr. Gortner is amazing! Our family has been under his care for 40 years.His personal interest & care of his patients goes beyond the office. He calls, visits, & takes time to see that his patients are healthy & well. When a family member went to the hospital, Dr. Gortner came on personal time to see them & assure family that they would be given the best of care. It will be a sad day when he retires his name & career. Blessings to you, Dr. Gortner, and God Bless you! Shirley & all family.

My mom has been seeing him for 3 or 4 years. The last year she had been telling him she had an upset stomach with no energy..... He basically dismissed it and gave her an anti nausea medication. Yeaterday ibecame increasing concern so i took her to the emergency. she had gallstones! The removed her gallbladder removed! DVortner had NEVERED EXPRESSED A CONCERN OR ANYTHING for that! The surgeon said that most likely this has been her affliction the entire year! What a Quack !!!
