    Dr Orta is a great doctor. She listens to my concerns and treats me as a partner in my care. She's an outstanding caregiver.

  • Dec 14, 2023

    Doctor Nieves is an outstanding specialist. I feel that my concerns regarding drugs for OP were heard. She made it clear that medical treatment was recommended but didn't push me to start right away.
