I genuinely did enjoy being cared for by Dr. Ortega! I was a little worried I wouldn't be taken seriously so I always try and get women doctors, but Dr. Ortega was really nice. It was a lot different than my experience with any other doctor, however. He didn't knock before opening the door, and he didn't tell me when he was going to stick me with the needle in my ear. It wasn't until AFTER he stuck the needle In that he said, "you're going to feel a little pinch". Both issues aren't that serious, but it's just not something I've experienced there before.

Dr Ortega listens and takes care of my ears. He has made suggestions for the dryness of my nose and sinus issues. He talked to us about Covid and the vaccines.

Removed lots of wax outta both my ears which helped me hear better. However I thought the Dr would come back into the room and look at my eardrum. Today a day later problem is back. I feel like my ear is plugged again. Dr spent less than10 minutes .. I am now going to find a new dr,

I was a bit concerned to go from no medications to 5 prescriptions in this visit with little explanation about what each would do for me. It was good to know that he didn't intend these to possibly be long term (he stated a month to see what happens).

He did not spend a lot of time with me but he told me what I had, explained that it was not bad, and I felt like he would have taken the time to answer any questions I had.
