Overall, all the staff in DR Cortina's office were very professional, courteous, and helpful. They all provided a good atmosphere for an office visit. Wait times throughout the visit were very short, ie for the start of the visit, minimal wait time for DR Cortina, the scheduler and the lab tech. Quite a pleasant appointment!
