Dr. Ortega has serious weight bias. He never touched my knee, looked at 1 x-ray and said my pain was 100% due to my weight even though I reported that I fell which caused the injury.

Dr. Ortega was so quick to send me out of the room. I’ve been in pain for a while and he told me it wasn’t a ligament, so I was good. I went to a different doctor and it turns out I have a torn meniscus. I felt like a number. I had so many questions and he didn’t care to answer any of them. I was also over charged by $100 and getting that fixed took a long time because they kept telling me to call back.

On Nov 09, 2018 I had an appointment with Dr. Jose Ortega at 11:45am office at his Palm Beach, due to traffic problems I arrived 10 minutes late. He did wait for me, even though previous appointments I waited 1/2hr to 40 minutes to be called in. I drive all the way from Delray Beach. I found this behavior unprofessional and careless. Nobody from his office called me to let me know they're closing the office for lunch. Furthermore, why give and appointment close to lunch time.

The main problem an disappointment I have is there Diagnostic Imaging Division (same group) in my opinion the staff needs several hours of customer service skills training. The Staff at Dr. Ortega’s Office was great

I wish i wouldve read previous reviews before scheduling an appt. with Dr. Ortega. You know that feeling of just feeling like a number ,thats exactly how i felt. Everytime i even tried explaining the pain in my knee i was cut off and he rushed to a conclusion , he was literally out the door as im almost pleading wait wait i have a couple of concerns. I cried on the phone to my mother when i left the office , i felt as if my problem wasnt even addressed and i didnt even matter .

Should have walked away after the first appointment. I arrived promptly but waited 45 minutes in the waiting room. At that point, a technician took me from the waiting room straight into x-ray. Keep in mind, I haven't even met or spoken to the doctor yet. No physical exam either. Then I'm put in a room. Doctor comes in, doesn't even let me tell him how injury occurred or what is going on. Decided to give me a cortisone shot and send me along. $400 later and no improvement. Never returns calls.
