Dr. Carlos was always a pleasure to speak with at our parish. We first met during a men’s retreat several years ago, and I was fortunate to have been able to continue seeing him at events from time to time ever since. He always made sure to check in and never let me leave without un saludo for my wife. God bless.

My dad, Dr Don Durrett , and Dr Ordonez we’re partners avd friends for more than 35 years. Dad and Karin loved to spend time with Cecelia and Carlos , and watched each other’s families grown up through the years. Dr Ordonez was a great favorite of mine and encouraged me along my medical pursuits as well. He was so much fun to be around , “a real charmer” as Karin would say , and I especially loved dancing with him at all our family weddings ! He has been so kind to keep visiting Dad this last year , during his own health issues, and his friendship will be greatly missed.

When I joined the South Fulton Hospital radiology practice in January 1980, Carlos immediately welcomed me into the group. That was the beginning of a life long partnership and friendship. We collaborated in diagnosing difficult cases and Carlos supported me in performing interventional procedures which I always found stressful and uncomfortable. The relationship developed into a strong friendship and brotherhood where our families spent time together outside work. When I decided to slow down in 2001 and work at a more leisurely pace at the VA, Carlos decided to join me there, where we had 6 more years of collaboration and work together. There we were joined by two more radiology friends and colleagues, Jeffrey Lichtman and John Wong, and we became known as "the One Bagel Gang" so named by the vendor at Goldberg's Bagels, where the four of us would go, each ordering a single bagel following either a walk in the park or a bike ride. There we would sit outside and discuss the major and minor problems of the world. Those memories are ingrained in me and I will forever miss those times.
