I met Dr. Mortens during my hospital stay at Lutheran. He was professional, friendly, happy to work with me to help me get better. I saw him in the clinic a few days later and he continued to help me do well. All in all, he is a great person to see for your medical needs. My wife and children also switched to him recently so we all get our exams at the same time!

I met Dr. Mortens when he delivered my niece at Lutheran Hospital. He was very professional and yet had a charming demeanor that is hard to find in a physician. Being a male, I wanted to have a male provider for my physical exams. I ended up having a complete physical with him a few weeks later and he remembered me like it was yesterday. He seemed to truly care about my health and wanted to see me succeed in my health goals that we set together. I am happy to call him my physician.

I recently took my teenage daughter to see him and he was very good with her and he got her to understand what she needs to do to stay healthy in a non judgemental way.

I saw Dr. Mortens when my primary doctor retired this past summer. I had some newly diagnosed health problems that I was not taking my medication like I was supposed to. Dr. Mortens helped me realize that I need to be more accountable for my health. He explained my problems in a language that made sense to me. His office staff were polite and friendly. Plus the newly remodeled clinic is amazing!
Caring person who seems to genuinely care about my families health.
