Doctor Ortman has become a lazy Dr. Who don't visit patients in hospital, gives out prescription not related to your condition. Doctor is just a lazy doctor Much more to be said but it's not worth it. Moved to a new doctor who really cares.

At first Dr. Ortman showed true interest in my mother who came in for a routine checkup along with some other symptoms. However, after seeing Dr. Ortman several times when she was having difficulty sleeping and other symptoms he disregarded her symptoms and didn't seem concerned and did not follow up with any research to diagnose her. Ultimately we moved to another doctor who was very attentive and finally discovered my mother was having temporal lobe seizures. She is now doing very well.

Dr. Ortman never breezes in and quickly leaves before your questions are answered completely. He is an teacher to his patients and makes sure that the patient knows exactly what they need to and not do to regain their health. Dr. Ortman's staff is friendly, competent, and caring.
