Rafael is absolutely incredible!! He is very efficient and effective with his approach. Unbelievably easy to talk to and he has changed my view of my self and the way I see and relate to the people around me for the better. Rafael goes above and beyond the call of duty you expect to receive when you see a counselor. He showed amazing compassion and insights in helping me sort through my issues. I truly feel that he has a special gift he helped me acknowledge my sadness and find my own  answers to heal my emotional wounds.

His technique in therapy is so unique and different from ordinary therapy. Rafael has a way of helping you understand your inner-workings without telling you how to live your life. He has helped me discover how to live a full life. Now looking back, his point of view was so rational and straight forward but during crisis, one needs help in seeing it.

I learned so much every week when I saw Rafael I do recommend him to anybody who needs anything. He is so different from all the others and one will learn so much from his wisdom and techniques.

This review is for the therapist Rafael J. Cortina. I have had great experiences with the secretaries and Dr. Cox. I contacted Rafael Cortina through email to cancel my upcoming and future appointments. He didn't understand why and asked if it was because I had binge-drank recently. I took offense because I don't feel I should be judged by my therapist,, let alone accused of cutting off communication to him because I was a defective person. He then proceeded to provoke me when I called him on this. He is at least 10-15 minutes late to every single appointment. The past few times, I would be leaving for the office and I was told my appointment would be rescheduled 45 minutes later. The last contact that I had with him was me asking him regarding some advice he gave me about being passive in a certain situation. He refused to answer why he provided this advice even though he was willing to provoke me further. He has proven himself extremely immature, and will turn around and judge you regarding information that you provide him. I have never felt so betrayed by a therapist, let alone a person that I have gone in week after week and expressed myself truthfully to. I would be wary of talking to him, expecting him not to judge you or being a decent person in any way. I sincerely wonder why there are people like this trying to "help" people in this field. He reflects very poorly on Crownview Medical Group.
