Very appreciative of Dr. Cortina for his helpful and timely concern for my well-being! He is simply awesome!!
Excellent provider / excellent staff
Everyone I came in contact with was courteous and explained everything so that I completely understood.
My Froedert experience has been & continues to be outstanding! I have never been treated better by a medical group (all involved parties)!
Both my husb & I were impressed with Dr Cortina. His nurse, & any staff during our visit. We calmed down since learning my diagnosis with Dr Cortina's showing us in drawings and eaay to understand explanation of what was ahead for the surgery. His nurse was also very knowledgeable and friendly in her interactions eith us.
Dr Cortina and his team were outstanding from my beginning stages of pre surgery a year ago until now.! I would highly recommend Freodert.
This was a second opinion for breast cancer. It was an outstanding experience. Dr. Cortina and his nurse were wonderful, compassionate, and very detailed in their explanations. I'm having my surgery at Froedtert.
I have never had such an amazing experience at the doctor. They used my correct name and asked for my pronouns. I felt very cared about and extremely happy with my visit.
Dr Cortina is a fantastic doctor, never seems like he is in a hurry. Listens to any concerns I may have.
Dr. Cortina is very personable and I feel very at ease and comfortable with him. I appreciate that he remembers me and carries on in general conversations about life and nonmedical stuff. It makes me feel valued and more like a friend that really cares about me rather than just another number or patient.
Dr cortina as always is kind, compassionate and he really listens to me. He is a wonderful doctor and I enjoy working with h him
