Dr. Cortes has been my personal physician for many years and during that period we?ve always had a very good doctor/ patient relationship. He?s always concerned about my complaints and listens to me. Then he tells me what treatment should be prescribed and I usually listen to him. He hasn?t steered me wrong so far. I think Dr. Cortes is an exceptional doctor.
Dr Cotes is well educated up to date on all my health related issues. I plan to continue keeping him as my primary. He stays up to date and communicates with all specialists related to my rare case. He?'s the best, he cares!
Very good experience

Excellent experience. Dr Cortes and his staff are the best.
Very informative visit, I hope Dr. Cortes remembers to get me the research on shoulder injection....
Dr. Cortes works very hard to clear up my health issues. He spends a lot of time discussing my health & listens to me. I never feel rushed or uncomfortable in his office. He gets 10 stars from me & I highly recommend him. He?s been my Doctor at Southcoast for about 20 years. I also am well cared for by his nurses, Katina & Lakesha.
Dr. Cortes is amazing!
