Dr Ortega is caring and smart. I highly recommend him
in Phoenix, AZ |
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!
