I have had Dr. Ortiz since I had my thyroid removed in April of 2010. So at the seven year mark, I am still with him and give him 5 out of 5 stars. I would rate him higher if possible. He listens and cares, while also flexible once a week coming south of Providence to Warwick, RI right next to the mall in the Warwick Medical Building. I was able to reschedule quite easily when needed

Dr. Ortiz has been very personable, understanding, and obviously knowledgeable about all the things I'm going through with my thyroid. I would hope anyone who is dealing with similar issues would be able to have him as their doctor.
