Ratings for Dr. Jose O. Ortega
Don't waste your time. I figured he would be good because he is part of the Andrews practice, but I spent two hours waiting just for him to tell me what I already know and offer no solution, no prognosis, no diagnosis even. I'm looking for another doctor.
He was 2 and 1/2 hours late seeing us with no explanation. He doesn't do surgery, so that would'nt be an explanation. After waiting 2 and 1/2 hours, he was in the room for 5 minutes (I timed him). He examined my kid and then mumbled something I couldn't even understand. I said, "Pardon me?" He responded, "Your kid had growing pains - nothing wrong with him." I asked, "What is the grinding we're hearing in the joint?" and he goes, "I don't know, but if its still bothering him in six months, bring him back." That was it - he walked out of the room! Never asked if we had any additional questions or anything. When I opened the door to tell the nurse I had more questions, she was standing beside him and she looked at him really fast and said "sssshhh." What did she need to tell him to be quiet about? I took my kid to a real orthopedist a week later and he had all kinds of torn ligaments when an MRI was done. I don't recommend this doctor to anyone - even your dog.
