Dr. Cortazzo and staff are wonderful people.

June 30, 2015

just met Dr.Cortazzo for the first time at this visit, was very satisfied with her concern for my issues and immediately gave me a plan that she thought would be beneficial for me to try. Was very impressed that she took the time to listen to me unlike some others that I have seen for this issue.

April 30, 2015

Dr. Cortazzo listened to my concerns as I believe several of my problems are interrelated. Rather than just focus on one problem, she looked at my body as a whole and how it works together. I've been waiting for a doctor like this, as the only other person to treat me this way has been my physical therapist. I'm looking forward to working with her.

The day following my appointment was the first time I was pain free in 3-4 years and I was able to walk normally, which rarely happens.

I was so impressed with how quickly she grasped my problem. She was incredibly knowledgeable and really enlightened me. She was amazing.

March 03, 2015

I felt informed my condition. She explained the problem and her recommendations to fix it. Kind, caring, and friendly.

February 17, 2015

This was my first visit with Dr. Cortazzo . She was very friendly but would have liked to have spent more time with her instead of her assistant. Will follow up with questions I may have and then take the survey again. Thank You.
