Patient Comments (1)

in Martinez, CA |
Dr. Cortez is excellent when working with my son. Always listens to any concerns we have and acknowledges our beliefs and desires. He is very patient and caring. When my son first began having issues with asthma was extremely helpful and reassuring. I strongly recommend him.
