      Everyone in the office was pleasant and accommodating. Dr. Ortiz took his time to go over my test results and explain the diagnosis. I could not have asked for a better experience.

      Dr. Ortiz is an excellent doctor and a down to earth person It is obvious from the minute you meet him that he truly cares for his patients. He was very good to me and worked with me through my claustrophobia with regard to sleep apnea. However his sleep study department had a lot to be desired. I had an issue with the flow of air during a sleep study and it sent me into a panic and I was UNABLE to complete the test due to excessive sweating and horrible pressure coming into my lungs. It was never explained to me that this would occur especially since I had a previous sleep study and did well and was able to wear the mask with no problem. No one should have to suffer like I did and I told the girl I couldn't do it with that type of air pressure and she truly didn't care. When my wife talked to Christine about the bill she was very rude and had a completely different story. However she was not there to see what I went through and now expect me to pay for a No Show visit.

      Wonderful experience. The office girl was nice and accommodating. I didn’t have my insurance card and she made she I was seen. Dr Ortiz was great. He answered all questions and informed me of things I didn’t know. He showed concern and was willing to fight my insurance company if they denied my procedure. Awesome Dr. felt heard and I was important. Feel hope.

      Dr. Ortiz is a fine doctor but he has serious problems with his front office staff. They are rude, incompetent and not truthful. I almost had a very bad medical situation that could have been make critical due to the front desk girl not communicating with the doctor and dispensing medical advise when she has NO medical training whatsoever. I will continue to go to Dr. Ortiz because I really like and respect him. But if I continue to have difficulties with the office staff I may have to change Dr

      I really like Dr. Ortiz but the front office staff, especially the person who usually answers the phone, is rude and very poor at relaying messages. And judging from other reviews I am not the only one who feels that way about the front desk personnel. I will recommend Dr. Ortiz to friends but the office staff really leaves a sour taste in my mouth. Dr Ortiz is 5* but the problems with staff brings him down some. That's to bad.

      Does not respond to patient. We have tried for over 10 days to get a response on chest Xray. No luck! Asked for a prescription refill to Wal-Mart at beginning of week and receptionist said she would give it to nurse. Called Wal-Mart on Sunday. No prescription called in by nurse. We are disgusted. Don't know what to do!

      Dr. Ortiz has proven to be a good choice as he is thorough. He explains my condition in terms that I understand. He is attentive and answers my questions. When I leave his office I feel confident that I have the proper information and medication to treat my condition. However, the front office staff is EXTREMELY RUDE. I force myself to look past that because Dr. Ortiz is such a good doctor. If I should have occasion to recommend Dr. Ortiz to a friend, I will warn them of this rudeness.
