|Dr. Neftali Ortiz - left scene of accident
She was able to find out who the plates on the car were registered to and they came back to DR NEFTALI ORTIZ - who, according to the latest information, is a Psychiatrist who practices in Newtown at Life Stages Counseling & Therapy: 660 Newtown Yardley Rd # 101 · (215) 860-7730
and there is also a Dr. Neftali Ortiz Dr. Neftali Ortiz,
listed at 7226 Castor Ave · (215) 742-7810
According to records, he graduated medical school from Univ Of Pr Sch Of Med, San Juan Pr 00936.
Ms. Madden shared the information on her facebook account hoping that Dr. Ortiz will come forward and share his insurance information. So far, almost 4,000 people have shared her pictures and her posts.
I would hope that, if indeed, Dr. Ortiz is a practicing psychiatrist, he will be investigated by the proper authorities. If he can't accept responsibility for his actions, what kind of treatment is he giving to patients?

So yesterday 2/3/16 at around 3:30pm I was driving on I95 north and was exiting the Newtown exit ramp. I was stopped at the red light when I was rear ended. I got out of my truck and confront the guy by making sure he was ok. He ignored me and I proceeded to ask for insurance and license. He was rolling his eyes and ignoring me. I took photos of everything because it was clear he was not going to cooperate. I asked him if he spoke English and he said yes. So I asked do you have insurance. He responded again yes. I asked to see it. He said no. I called the police. Since it was raining I sat in my truck and spoke to the officer and he informed someone would be on their way. I asked the guy again for insurance and he just put his hand up and ignored me. The guy seemed very arrogant and just didn't want to give me the time of day. I sat in my truck and waited for the police. The guy backed up, slammed into my truck again and fled the scene. I once again called the cops and they arrived very quickly. The cop and state trooper were very helpful and nice. I am 4 months pregnant. I went to the hospital to check to see if the baby is ok. Thank God the heartbeat is still strong! I do have muscle ache in my back. Due to the pregnancy there is not much to do about that. I am writing this to make other drivers aware. This is DR NEFTALI ORTIZ who hit a 4 month pregnant woman twice with his be vehicle and fled the scene of an accident. Thanks to google it wasn't to hard to identify him! Please be aware and drive safely! FOX 29 ABC News

The Quick Facts:
Officer Matt Hickey was a K9 handler with Marietta Ohio police department. He retired after 30 years because of slow to heal injuries. He stopped working in the summer of 2015 and his K9 partner Ajax has not worked since then either.
Hickey retired in January of 2016 after the police chief Rodney Hupp assured Hickey he could keep K9 Ajax if he paid for him - but if he did not pay for K9 Ajax - Hupp would send another officer to confiscate the dog.
Hickey arrived with the money and Chief Hupp changed his mind and said K9 Ajax now cost more, saying it was against the law to allow Officer Hickey to keep his dog, however, the Chief told Hickey he could keep his dog if Hickey still kept working for free as a volunteer (auxiliary).
I wrote a detailed story on it here: Officer Matt Hickey Speaks Out
Even with incredible pressure from animal lovers, police, police supporters, and good hearted people everywhere - the "leadership" of Marietta Ohio is still refusing to allow K9 Ajax to remain with Hickey and still plans on announcing the auction date for 'sealed' bids on Thursday night. The Mayor and the Chief are furious that the public is putting pressure on them - yet still refuse to do what is right and logical.
The story hit the media and there was a tremendous response but then the leadership of Marietta told the media the situation was resolved when it wasn't - so the story lost it's traction. And now on facebook the FALSE story that Officer Hickey accepted the offer to work for free is "trending" (which leads me to wonder if there is a way to pay to have stories "trend" at the top on Facebook the way you can pay Twitter to publicize a story).
Please help - you can make a difference (or at the very least say you tried!)!
