While I have seen SO many 5 Star Reviews of Dr. Antonio Paz, I had a very different experience. I do not recommend him and suggest that one avoid him. I was referred by my Neurosurgeon, Dr. Sanderson, for severe lower back pain. I arrived early at Dr. Paz's office. Amanda, a NP attended to me initially, asking the usual questions and history. She then said that Dr. Paz would be doing a Nerve Block. (I had not had an MRI yet). Then another PA came and said some other sort of block. I told him that Amanda just saw me and said a "nerve block". He said "sorry" and left. A few minutes later, Dr Paz saw me. It was obvious to me that he wanted to minimize his time with me. Dr. Paz wanted to do an epidural. He stated that I "had spent an hour with Amanda". (it was actually 15 to 30 minutes. When I said that I had specific questions about the procedure, he handed me a brochure and said "I don't have time for that". Based on this experience, I have chosen another pain management s

So very happy to have been recommended to Dr Paz. My previous pain management group had basically tuned me out, not really listening to me when I spoke of new symptoms, and telling me my issues were “more of the same”. Dr Paz and his entire staff listened carefully as I spewed out as much information as I could, and they could not have been nicer about it. I didn’t get the impression at all that they were trying to rope me into expensive, unnecessary treatments or trying to sign me up with every doctor in the group. So my first impression is very positive!
