Conditions & Procedures
Skin Cancer Surveillance
Dr. Ortel inspires confidence and allows me to relax. He is wonderfully skilled at recognizing and explaining the variety of skin conditions and options for treatment.
Dr. ORTEL is one of my favorite North Shore Health doctors; caring, professional and very knowledgeable.
I'm sorry I do not make medical recommendations
My first visit with this doctor. First impression: not very friendly (poor bedside manner), defensive about me questioning his recommendations and perception is that I was actually "bothering" him with the visit. His body language proved this - had his arms crossed alot. I came in for two items the first of which he told me right off the bat he could not help me because we had to make sure my insurance covered it. I asked if we could contact my ins company while I was there and he said that was not a possibility...was it really not possible or he just did not want to deal with it? Anyway....my issues are minor however if I came to him for something detrimental I would have been totally put off and would not go back. We will see how he is if I am able to return to him for the item pending insurance approval. Not necessarily looking forward to it....
the doctor and the team were very professional and compassionate
Dr Ortel is the BEST, Thank You .
Dr. Ortell could see my problem immediately and gave me suggestions on how to handle at home and some prescriptions.
Dr Ortel has always been great. Very competent and personable.
the Dr is good
Dr Ortel listens well. He also examined my scalp which was not the reason for my visit. I'm glad he did because he found some growths.
