After 2 life threatening blood clots, we got to Dr Ortel. He was miraculous. He explained every step of a year long treatment clearly. When that was complete, he then discussed at length my goals and gave me options taking those goals and my quality of life into the mix. His recommendations were spot on, and my family and I couldn't be more grateful. He is an excellent, caring physician who demonstrated genuine concern for me far beyond prescribing a pill.
