Dr. Ortega knows how to explain the neuro pathology in a way that is easy to follow and understand. He lets one know when a procedure will be uncomfortable

It's almost impossible to get an appointment. Mom could barely walk when she started seeing Dr. Ortega. The office took 3 months to see her, and another 3 months to do an MRI! Now they want her to wait another 3 months for Dr. Ortega to go over the results! Avoid this Dr. at all costs!
