Dr Diaz is an excellent communicator. Dr Diaz evaluated my mother and explained the evaluation and the differential diagnosis. His office scheduled an injection for her. Dr Diaz ‘s office was very polite. The office had oil paintings that were created by Dr Diaz’s wife. This added to the calmness of the office.

Dr. Diaz has been just wonderful to me; warm and caring in addition to being extremely knowledgeable and helpful to my specific conditions. I will continue seeing him, for the original reasons, but also, Dr. Diaz’s expertise has shown that he has knowledge in other areas that have been of benefit to me. I want to add that Marvin, his P.A., is also extremely competent, friendly and pleasant, and has been another great medical asset to me. Great team, Dr. Diaz and Marvin!

I've been having right shoulder pain for about 5 years now. I've had 4 vertebrae in my neck fused which didn't help 5 years ago. All other doctors I have seen have always focused on my spine or just prescribed narcotics to cover up the pain. 1 visit with Dr. Diaz and a few physical tests in his office and he sent me for an MRI of my shoulder. This is the first out of many doctors that actually listened to me. Turns out I have a ligament torn 95% of the way in my shoulder. It took 1 visit for him

Dr. Diaz was one of my worst doctor experiences ever! My mother even refers to him as someone you would see working out of a truck; a medicine man. He did not want to listen to me about my problem in my neck, back, and shoulder and how much pain it was giving me. Instead of fixing the existing problem, he made it worse. I am 22 and have been living with this pain for 2 years and he didn't even show compassion when I said I couldn't sleep at night I was in so much pain

I have been with Dr Diaz for 13 years now. He has treated me for a problem a lot of doctors don't know much about and I am so greatful that I found him. He is very caring of his patients and takes his time to listen and to explain the situation. If I had to drive a hundred miles to continue with him I would have no problem with that. I feel that he is not just my doctor but also a good friend.
