After my cardiologist moved, I became a patient of Ortenberg's. I have a link recorder implanted which is supposed to be connected by Ortenberg. For a year, he never connected with it. It took a year to tell me & laughingly told me he didn't know where recordings were even going. Then still, made no attempt to connect to it. The medicine he prescribed for my heart made me sick, but I was told to stay on it till my next appointment in 3 weeks. I kept calling to tell him I just was too sick on it. He did nothing. When I did see him, he took me off all my heart meds. I fired him. Turns out if you fire one of the groups Drs. You cannot see any other ones. Then, he tried to play the game, you can't fire me, I fire you. The most arrogant man around. Medicine is not his strong suit. I would run if I saw him coming! Ugh! I'm with another Dr. Who is giving me Pacemaker Surgery. During this time with a new Dr. My heart has been stopping several times. Glad I got away from Ortenberg with my life.
If you like a Doctor with a big EGO then this is the Doctor for you. I would not go back to him if he were the only Doctor on earth!! He knows everything and if you do not believe that just ask him. He is insincere and could care less about what your concerns are. Why he even ask you I do not know. He thinks he is way above everyone else. The patients are the little people to him. He needs to get into another line of work!
