Patient Comments (4)

Waist of time. Did nothing, except inform me that the issue is permanent. The chronic pain is permanent. Not myself but my 6 year old. They are the worst Orthopedic office that I've felt with. And I've felt with Orthopedic surgeon's in Denver, NY, and Massachusetts.

Dr. Ortiz is excellent! Very kind and knows what he's doing. Had surgery for tennis elbow 6 months ago and feel 90% better! (Healing could take a year) I will be having surgery on my left elbow this week and can now rest easy knowing I'm in good hands! Highly recommend!

My experience with Dr. Ortiz has always been a positive one. I had shoulder surgery. I had experience pain in my left shoulder. He was very thorough as well as professional with my care and treatment afterwards. Dr. Ortiz is highly recommended in my book!
