Horrible Dr, the nurse took a heart test when he came in I asked if I was ok his answer was “no your going to die”! He gave me pills and said to come back in 1 wk, I went back he schedule me for surgery to have a fibulator put in my chest, It didn't feel right so went to another Dr he told me that if he had put in a fibulator I would have died in 2 wks, my heart was weak and it would have over worked it, i stayed with the new Dr and my heart is well, stay away from Dr Orr if you value your life

I can not believe how bad this doctor was. With his arrogant, condescending attitude and horrible demeanor I had no confidence in him or his recommendations. He tried to unwind everything that my primary doctor was doing(that is working). I would steer clear of this doctor and his other 1 star reviews as it could save your life!

He wasn't interested in answering my questions and was vague with his response. He stood next to the door and hurried me along and then wanted me to schedule surgery. I didn't have a good vibe. I felt like I was a patient algorithm and not a person.

My one and only meeting with Dr. Orr was satisfactory. He seemed professional. My testing was not done by him but by Dr Vargas in the same office who I liked very much. My follow up was cancelled when I got to the office. I was told Dr. Orr was called away on a last minute emergency & I was annoyed but ok with it. My next appointment was also cancelled at the last hour. One call telling me he had an emergency. 5 minutes later another call, different employee, telling me he was ill. No confidence
