    in El Paso, TX |
    My first visit with Dr. Cortes was very professional, I was happy with his knowledge and the time he took to explain my case. After few months I call his office requesting his opinion on a CPAP machine, he was very rude, did not care to help me, he told me he want it to go home. I was very disappointed with his reaction not for a professional as he is. I will never visit him again and lost all the trust on him.
