This was my first time meeting with Dr. Cortina about an issue discovered after a biopsy. He was very kind and informative about my condition and the steps that were available to proceed with my healthcare. I appreciated his thorough explanation of my condition and the steps involved. I was less stressed leaving his office due to our conversation and now understand the steps that will be taken to deal with my health.

This doctor was one of the best doctors I've seen in my lifetime. I never once felt like a "number"; he spent ample amount of time with me. He made me leave with such relief knowing that I got the best care possible and that there was no questions left unanswered. He is an incredible doctor and I feel extremely lucky that I had the opportunity to be under his care.

this doctor had up to the minute, a month or less, results of a 20 to 25 years study breast health as it relates to LCIS. This information was critical, is very important to me going forward as I make decisions, prophylactic decisions, about by breast health care.

The Second Opinion staff were very professional, polite and prompt. I had an appointment scheduled within less then a week and they were thorough in explaining everything. I immediately felt at ease with Dr. Cortina. He was professional, showed compassion for my situation and also a great sense of humor. The nurses were also professional and kind. I felt like they really cared about my health and helping me. I'm so glad that I came here for a second opinion because I know I've found the place where I will receive the best care.
