C.V. tells Google reviews: “Dr. Orbegozo takes his time to listen to me. He genuinely cares. I’m glad I’m in his care. I wouldn’t change him at all. That’s why I drive from Winter Haven, because he is the best. This is excellent patient care at its best.”
J.L. writes: “A wonderful doctor. He gets a 10 in every area!”
D.S. writes: “One of the best doctors visits I have ever had. He took his time, listened to my concerns and answered all my questions. Very satisfied.”
