Dr. Ortiz is outstanding! Her positive energy and drive to find a solution that works for her patients is unparalleled. I have a complicated prescription and tinnitus. She listens and encourages real-time feedback of how each hearing aid works for me. She’s honest, caring, and exceptionally knowledgeable. So glad i found Dr. Ortiz!

Dr. Lovitt is thorough in what she does and in the way that she explains the hearing evaluation and what could be disorders of the ear. The whole process is a bit stressful but she does her best to put the patient on a path to improving their hearing.
