      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!
      Dr. Ortega is fantastic!!! He never stopped looking for what was wrong with me. (Like a few other doctors have) Dr. Ortega is very knowledgeable, friendly, and funny!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
