My first visit with Dr. Bortz was in 2006 for a cancerous thing on my right ear. Fantastic job. Now, I have just completed my fourth (hope) and final trip this year for four spots on my upper & lower lip (opposite sides), my left ear and a spot in the crease of my left nostril. Even though I was in a panic situation (for me), he calmed my fears, explained everything to me, did his best to make me feel as comfortable as possible, and answered any and all questions. I would definitely recommend he and his staff to anyone.
