October, 2021

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.
