If you are looking for the best surgeon who cares about you and is passionate about the best care possible... look no further..!! I had my gallbladder/appendix removed and was over the top impressed with Dr. Ortega's bedside manor and expertise ... Would refer all my close friends and family...!

Dr. Ortega recently performed laparoscopic surgery to repair two inguinal hernias for me, one of which was fairly large and longstanding. I was quite apprehensive about the procedure, due to a few horror stories I had heard from acquaintances who had had the same procedure. Dr. Ortega was very thorough in explaining what the procedure entailed and quelled most of my concerns. I could not have been more pleased with the surgery and have had only minimal recovery pain. Excellent surgeon!
