Review of Dr. Saldua

- in Vancouver, WA |

Dr. Saldua was exceptionally thorough in using MRI images to help me understand the cause of my condition and his proposed treatment. As a result I was very comfortable eventually making the decision to undergo surgery. After a period of recovery, I could not be happier with outcome.

Review of Dr. Saldua

- in Woodland, WA |

My results have been fantastic! I'm nearly 6 months post-op from C5-7 ACDF, pain free, numbness and tingling gone. Dr. Saldua is a very nice man who will tell it to you straight. He took the necessary time to answer all of my questions and most importantly I consider my surgery a complete success!

Review of Dr. Saldua

- in Vancouver , WA |

My experience with a neck injury has been a nightmare. I was in constant pain, my fingers were numb and I had weird nerve shocks going down my arm. After 2 years of doctors, physical therapy, I met Dr Saldua. He explained exactly what was going on with nerve damage occurring in my cervical spine. It was only going to get worse. Dr Saldua’s team and physician’s assistant helped with this complicated insurance claim, and I was able to successfully get 2nd surgical ACDF repair 3 months ago.

I already have recommended him! Dr. Saldua was very professional, knowledgeable and conveyed information on a level appropriate for us to understand. Plus he listened to what I had to say and included that in my care plan. I feel very fortunate to have him as my doctor.

Review of Dr. Saldua

- in Woodland, WA |

Before visiting Dr. Saldua I had constant pain in my left arm along with tingling and numbness in my left hand. I was told I had 3 herniated discs in my neck and after some physical therapy, it was decided I would undergo discectomy with fusion. My surgery was a complete success and I have never felt better. I didn't realize how limited my movement was, but now I have full movement again and no pain, tingling or numbness! Having this procedure done was definitely the best option for me.

I had with a lumbar disc that was worked on by OHSU prior to my introduction with Dr. Saldua… I told Dr. Saldua that experiencing this disc issue again, I would like to get surgery for it as soon as possible... I did not believe that pain management or physical therapy was going to help, unless I got my prior surgery re-done. He made that happen and agreed after getting my MRI! At the six week checkup after surgery, I currently have NO pain! Need I say more... Thank you Dr. Saldua

I liked how Dr DSaldua explained things with visuals on his i pad. It really helped me understand the procedure and make a better decision. He also said take your time think the options over and lets talk This summer.

Review of Dr. Saldua

- in Vancouver WA |

I’m sure he is an excellent surgeon, but he is very rude. He showed little to no compassion or kindness and was condescending in answering a question. He responded to one of my as “How would I know?” and it was a question on the success rate of a procedure he was recommending before surgery. It was clear he had done the surgery many times, but I haven’t; I was more upset when I left then when I arrived. He was clear on the risks, which I appreciated but again, no compassion. Very irrogant
