Always a good experience with Dr. Ortel.
have referred several people to Dr Ortell
dr. ortel is very comprehensive in his exam and assures the patient about the results and explains things easily understood by the patient.
Straight talker, ever to the point.
The doctor was very responsive to the issues I mentioned regarding the photo dynamic therapy I had received earlier. I was not satisfied with the PDT, I let Dr. Ortel know the problems
Dr Ortel Is a very professional and detail oriented practitioner
My only reason for not recommending the care provider is because of going through the central phone system to make an appointment or reach the doctor's office. This is a terrible and frustrating system -- keeping patients away from the caregivers.
I have one huge complaint and it isn't aimed at the dr, but your computer system. I have an allergy to epinephrine and forgot to mention it as I didn't plan on getting a shot that day. It is on the sheet but no where where someone would look so thankfully I it wasn't life threatening. How are doctors supposed to know to look out for things if it isn't somewhere noticeable on the chart? it printed out on my sheet before I left, but what good does that do if the staff can't see it. What is the point of having it there at all? I had to also mention that I am allergic to the tape and need paper tape, since it is no where t be found. this could have turned out very badly. Again, I don't blame the dr, they can only work with what they have in front of them.
dr Ortel is an excellent dermatologist. he actually saved my life by finding a melanoma on my neck when he was treating me for another condition. he did an excellent surgery on it. he is always on time and has an excellent staff of nurses. I have the greatest respect for dr ortel. I could not be happier with him for all the times I see him. thank you dr ortel.
It was a most excellent first appointment, and I look forward to continuing this relationship in the coming years because I feel confident in the doctor's ability to treat any dermatological conditions that would arise.
