Not a good doctor. He doesn't even listen to what people say. He isn't happy with his profession because he doesnt act like a doctor.

Too few characters: He said my 18mo baby was overweight, needed to eat veg. and be active w/o asking. FYI She is very active and eats veg. a lot. When I said she was built like her dad, he said she needed to eat better so she didn't end up like her dad. I meant bone structure. Rude. My baby was scared and crying the whole time and he never talked to her. His tone was accusatory, the visit brief, uninformative, disheartening. My 2nd time w/ him never again. Yelp for WVMC for more on Ortega.

Dr. Ortega treated my autistic son inhumanely, distancing himself & never speaking directly to him, but asking me to do so for him. He diagnosed him as soon as he walked in. He had never met my son. "Kids with this diagnosis have behaviors. This is a behavior." He was ready to leave the room without even examining my son. I asked many questions - he did a very brief exam. He asked me to help, as not to touch my son anymore than necessary. No child or adult EVER deserves this type of treatment.

As a patient of Dr. Ortega's for about 10 years, I've been very pleased by his ability to listen, his thoroughness and his professionalism. He seems to me to be a very good GP and completely meets my expectations. Receptionists are generally young and not too experienced so it is up to the patients to determine for themselves how urgently you need to see a doctor, which is not always clear when it is something between a routine visit and calling 911.
