About Me

I believe that as healers and physicians, we should treat every patient as if they were part of our own family. Treat them as if we were being treated ourselves. Provide the care, compassion and treatment that one would expect for oneself.

Dr. Jimenez and his staff are amazing. Very helpful and willing to spend time with you to address all questions and concerns. Surgery was a success and the 6" scare is barley noticeable! Recovery was difficult but expected as he and his staff explained in advance what I'd experience. Hope I dont need his services in the future but if I do he'll definitely be the one I go to.

I am a 22 year old challenged with Von Hippel Lindau syndrome. I had an unexpected tumor and cyst invade my head with crazy severe headaches at age 16. Dr. Jimenez was my mom's trusted neurosurgeon. I went to him without question. Dr. Jimenez gave me confidence and comfort that he knew what he was dealing with inside my head. My surgery and follow ups were and have been successful since then up to the present. I was blessed at the right time and the right place with the right man and his team.

Dr. David Jimenez is absolutely an amazing neurosurgeon!! I went to see Dr. Jimenez for a Chiari 1 Malformation. I had a successful decompression surgery in October 2015. Dr. Jimenez saved my life. If you have been diagnosed with a Chiari Malformation, he is the surgeon to see. He has a lot of knowledge on the condition and he actually listens to you. I saw a surgeon prior to going to Dr. Jimenez who ignored me. I can not express how thankful I am for this compassionate and wonderful surgeon!!

Dr. Jimenez and his team are the BEST. We are forever grateful for the comfort they provided me and my wife during what will surely turn out to be one of the hardest times of our lives. His level of patience and willingness to spend as much time as was needed to answer ALL of our questions is so hard to find with any medical professional today. His level of knowledge, continued research and support for his patients and parents is unparalleled.
