Extremely satisfied with all aspects of this visit and the level of professionalism shown by the doctor and all supporting staff.

I am very pleased with both the staff and the physician in Dr. Cortina's office. With the one exception of getting no feedback on the results of my x-rays after my hip replacement surgery, I feel that Dr. Cortina did an excellent on both the surgery and the follow-up visits, which is what this last visit was.

I am completely satisfied with the care I get from Dr. Cortina. In October 2013 he removed a small tumor from my right leg and probably saved my leg and my life. He is the best!
