Dr Gilbert Ortega is extremely knowledgable in his field of orthopedics. I had a broken shoulder and patella. His mannerism was a blessing as I was in alot of pain and discomfort. Dr. Ortega went through every step that I would have to do for my 2 injuries without having surgery. This was wonderful news to my ears. I trusted him and have great respect for Dr. Ortega. It's tough when you are going through injuries with all the down time and recooperation period. Having a doctor like Dr. Gilbert Ortega give you that feeling of belief that you will be whole again is more than words could ever explain. I thank God every day for putting me in his path for him to be my physcian and will never forget his kindness and understanding. I am grateful and would like to share this with everyone and say I an walking again and my shoulder healed I owe a great deal to Dr. Gilbert Ortega and his amazing team! Thank you Dr. Gilbert Ortega~

My concern after knowing that I was needing a hip replacement was to find the right orthopedic surgeon, and after a while, I found Him, and from the first time I meet Dr. Gilbert Ortega I knew that He was the surgeon I was looking for; He did my surgery successfully, and I feel great from the first day of getting my new hip and I feel it like my original hip. Dr. Ortega is a great surgeon with a very professional and compassionate attitude, and He helps his patients with respect and efficiency
