What People Say About Dr. Jose Cortez, MD

Dr. Cortez is AMAZING!  Not only was he wonderful in explaining my son's hypospadias at previous appointments, he did a great job doing a hypospadias repair today - which is a pretty big surgery. I am a mom, and we worry, so tonight (or early this morning, rather) when my son was inconsolable I called the after hours number and Dr. Cortez called me right back. He walked me through what to do to make him feel better, and for that I am grateful! Amy

Dr Cortez is awesome. Although his staff members could use some customer service classes. This office made me feel so terribly low that at the opportunity to have my son scheduled and appointment I jumped up and made sure I get clearance from my son's lung specialist. The office was aware that I had to run it by my boss and get clearance at 240pm. They never called me to tell me they gave my son's appointment to someone else. So now I may have to wait another month before my son can have surgery
