Your trust is our top concern.

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

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

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 do not like Dr. Cortada and I would NEVER recommend him to others. He does not look out for his patients and he is very set in his old fashioned ways. Very disappointed. Good luck getting his receptionist to call you back. You will have to call her back.

I was pleased with Dr. Cortada for several reasons: 1. Short office wait before being seen, not crowded. 2. He spent time with my infant grandson, mother and myself asking questions and explaining things. 3. And instead of just shuffling us out after the first exam and immunization S he put us in a room to watch an educational video - that he had put together - about the care of infants.
