Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I have been a patient for almost 20 years. My treatments have alleviated pain from numerous whiplash injuries, S.I. joint pain, knees and ligaments and tendons in the shoulder girdle. Dr Tortland is always very accurate with his diagnoses and takes care to administer injections that are minimally painfully if at all. I trust him completely and would never consider going anywhere else for treatments.

Great listener, my favorite doctor ever! His innovative regenerative orthopedic medicine treatment protocols have restored strength and stability to my back ligaments, tendons and facet capsules. I had severe osteoarthritic degeneration of my facet joints, quadratus lumborum tendon strains, and an iliolumbar ligament strain, all related to spinal scoliosis from a leg length inequality. Last 2 years, at age 70 plus, I've been able to do an amazing amount of hard work on our cottage in Maine and on a wooden sailboat. He's helped me to enjoy the active retirement I wanted to have. Thank you!

Dr. Tortland is a lifesaver. Not only did he accurately diagnose my issues, but he recommended treatments that helped me to the point of it being life-changing. I wouldn't trust anyone else in my medical decision-making. Thank you, Dr. Tortland and his wonderful staff!

I WAS DIAGNOSIED WITH OSTEOARTHRITIS IN BOTH SHOULDERS. I HAD LIMITED RANGE OF MOTION AND PAIN TO THE EXTENT THAT I COULD NOT BRING MY ARMS AROUND MY NECK OR WASH UNDER MY ARMS. DRESSING WAS A PROBLEM WHEN LOOPING A BELT ABOUND MY PANTS OR PULING A SHIRT OVER MY HEAD OR REACHING OVER MY SHOULDERS. SLEEPING WAS PROBLEMATIC SINCE I WOULD WAKE UP DUE TO PAIN. I TRIED INJECTIONS AND PRECRIPTION ANTI INFLAMMATORY MEDICATION WHICH PROVIDE LIMITED TEMPORARY RELIEF. I HAD THREE SEPARATE ORTHOPEDIC OPINIONS. . ALL REQUIRED GENERAL ANESTHESIA, SURGERY 6 MONTHS TO ONE YEAR RECOVERY FOR EACH SHOULDER WITH RISKS, 2 YEARS OUT OF MY LIFE. I OPTED FOR STEM CELL THERAPY SIMULTANEOUSLY FOR BOTH SHOULDERS WITH DR. TORTLAND. THERE WAS NO GENERAL ANESTHESIA OR SCARING. BOTH SHOULDERS WERE FULLY FUNCTIONING WITHIN ONE YEAR WITH NO DOWN TIME DURING THE HEALING PROCESS. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND STEM CELL THERAPY OVER SURGERY WITH ITS ACCOMPANYING RISKS. IT IS YOUR OWN BODY HEALING ITSELF.

Worth the Wait!
It takes forever to see Dr. Tortland (my wait was 4 mos. 8/21-it may be even longer now) but it is so worth the wait! Dr. Tortland immediately put me at ease, going straight to my neck and asking about what hurt and what didn’t before looking at the radiology reports-just the opposite of every other specialist I had been to. He explained every action as well, saying he wanted to know exactly what bothered ME, not what a third person had to report, which turned out to be extremely beneficial in my case. Although my radiology reports indicated worsening DDD, he told me my pain had nothing to do with that! That’s what I had been saying all along, but no one would listen to me… now he was explaining how that could be after I had already given up asking how a chronic condition could lead from an extended period without pain to the most excruciating pain of my life in 1 day… He had the answers! Prolotherapy brought me tremendous relief;staff is awesome;equipment top notch; clean offices;HR!

Everyone in the immaculate office was pleasant and most concerned about my comfort level. Both doctor and staff knowledgeably explained the process. Dr.Tortland listened to my concerns with patience was able to pinpoint my problem area and treat it quickly and efficiently with minimal pain. Such sensitivity and empathy is rare these days and most appreciated.
