Specialties

Dr. Winston R Ortiz has the following 2 specialties

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

Poor doctor

Dr. Ortiz was very arrogant and unwilling to listen to problem. He made me cry in the office. Later at the testing scheduled, I arrived only to find out he had cancelled the appt without any prior notice .

Doctor Patient Medical Relationship

I was referred to Dr. Ortiz to get a neurologist diagnosis about the numbness in my fingers on my right hand. He prescribed medication twice that has not helped. He sent me for blood work that he had not reviewed when talking with me. I feel like a guinea pig and rushed out when he talks to me. I wish he would schedule my visits closer and put me on a medication that works. My fingers has been swollen for six months with no change. He has referred me to rheumatologist whom I won't be able to see until August. I am tire of having a numb hand with swollen fingers. I realize he is busy, but I wish he would make arrangements to monitor my condition and medications closer.
