    Dr. Cortes is exactly as a doctor should be- professional, caring, pleasant and extremely easy to talk to. My exam was very thorough. He answered all of my questions and explained everything in a language I could understand. Almost every other doctor I have seen in the city seems to be in a rush but Dr. Cortes took his time and I appreciate that greatly. It is very difficult to find a great doctor in the city but I'm extremely happy to have found Dr. Cortes! I highly recommend him.

    I was referred to Dr.Cortes for a chronic condition I have. Dr.Cortes is extremely considerate, and truly and genuinely cares about his patients. Apart from simple questions, he helped me feel more comfortable with the diagnosis and the direction we are going by explaining the science and rationale behind the diagnosis; including explaining medical terminology, going over individual lab test results, etc. Also, Dr.Cortes's office has online portals to make accessing your records online easy.
