Thorough and down to earth. Makes you feel very comfortable. I was able to have 3 consultations with him to make sure that I was making the right decision.

Im in my 50's so after having 3 kids in my life time and gaining over 100 lbs after my pregnancies my body was left ravaged. I managed to loose the weight thru diet and exercise but my mid section skin never got even close to what it used to be. It was embarrassing to have to tuck in skin every time I got dressed. I finally decided that getting a tummy tuck was my only option so I started looking for a doctor. I met Dr. Ortega at Spectrum Aesthetics and I was very impressed by his tummy tuck after photos. He is a very kind surgeon and I am extremely happy with my results.

I found out about Dr. Ortega through Google. I had my liposuction procedure performed by Dr. Ortega 4 months ago. He did a spectacular job in explaining to me how much fat he would be able to remove and how my body shape would end up looking after. I also got a great price on the procedure. I'm super happy with my results.

I love my new breasts. 400cc saline. I have no children, my breast were just small and lifeless. Now they are amazing! The procedure was very fast, and I was back to normal activities in about 5 days, except for working out. Love you Dr. Ortega!

Excellent! Provided lots of info that I didn't think to ask. Has pretty good specials that include massages and 2 garments! Staff was great and made me feel comfortable. Easy to reach by phone and great follow ups. If I get something else I will definitely go to him again

When I went in for my consultation, I felt more of like an assembly line than an individual. Also, the staff forgot to mention some important things, like a bra for post op that needs to open to the front. The one they gave me was way too small and was cutting into my skin, even after leaving the bottom two hooks unhooked. Also, my post op appointments went alright, they weren't with my Dr, but I could have used some better directions than just quickly rambled off, and trying to remember while all drugged up. The Dr was very good, explained things very well, and made sure to answer all my questions. I'm very happy with the job he has done. And I feel like a new person :)

I called and talked to Denia and she was the one who made me interested in being a client of Spectrum Aesthetics. I drove from Atlanta to Miami and went to meet Dr. Ortega. As soon I met him, I liked him right away because of his friendly and personable demeanor.
