Our Story

The Past

BLISS Health was founded in 2015 with the goal of providing comprehensive medical care to patients living with or at risk of HIV, STDs, and Hepatitis.

The visionary leader behind the practice, Dr. Roberto Ortiz, brings more than 40 years of experience in sexual health. Specifically, the testing, treatment, prevention and research of HIV and STDs.

Dr. Ortiz opened the practice with just five employees, and a mission of providing quality care in a welcoming, non-judgmental environment. This commitment to compassionate care helped Dr. Ortiz and the team establish a trusted reputation throughout Orlando and Central Florida.

The Present

BLISS Health provides a one-stop destination for sexually active people who want to protect their health and the health of their partners. The team –– which now consists of more than 30 individuals –– believes that sex should be fun and stress-free, but that requires education, testing, treatment and prevention.

BLISS Health provides a full-suite of sexual health offerings ––both in person and via telemedicine –– including routine doctor’s visits, laboratory testing, prescription medication, and mental health support like counseling.

In addition, the team offers a Care Management program for individuals who are uninsured or underinsured. The Care Management program has a dedicated team of case managers who help patients receive assistance with housing, transportation, food, and medication.

Currently, BLISS Health serves people living in Orlando and throughout Central Florida, but the team intends to expand its services nationwide.

The Future

BLISS Health is experiencing a period of unprecedented growth. The practice is in the process of moving into a new building that’s currently under construction. Once completed, the new facility will allow the team to expand their offerings. What’s more, the team estimates that the new location will allow them to double the number of patients treated in just six months.

BLISS Health’s new building is conveniently located and much larger than the current practice location. Once completed, the facility will feature a:

  • Commercial laboratory
  • In-house pharmacy
  • Urgent care clinic
  • Dentist office
  • Fitness center

In addition, the team will offer medically-tailored meal plans, nutritional counseling, and other services. By providing a one-stop destination for health and wellness, BLISS Health hopes to holistically serve a diverse community of people seeking to maintain or improve their health, relationships, and quality of life.
