A year ago, Dr. Jimenez was able to see me and performed surgery that if not treated could have affected my vision. He was very professional when giving his diagnosis, but was also very sympathetic and positive. His attitude and kind words helped me feel confident going into the surgery. I am very grateful for his help and thankful that he is in El Paso helping others.

Stephanie C. – May 19, 2021
I was very scared and concerned almost lost when Lucas was born. Dr. Jimenez and his team made us feel better and guided us by our hand throughout the process step by step and explained the process ans made us feel more at ease with everything I am very grateful and forever in debt with him and his team because without him my baby would never be and look the way he does. I would definitely recommend anyone that has a similar situation to come even if it far away from home to see him. I can assured that as soon as you meet with him your anxiety and worries will if not go away but will decrease by a lot. This was the best decision I ever made I would do it all over again.

Dr Jimenez and his staff made me feel very comfortable through this serious procedure. I wasn't afraid. I felt no pain and Dr. Jimenez was very kind and caring. He explained exactly what was happening and what he was going to do. It put me at ease. Made this experience not so scary. Best of all he doesn't shave heads!

Jane P. – Mar 15, 2021
Our family traveled from Dallas to see Dr Jimenez. At Gia's 4 mos check up is when we learned she may have a condition called Craniosynostosis. The same week the city shut down for Covid-19 and we were quarantined at home for 2 months. I researched what we could expect from the specialists and i learned that a unique endoscopic procedure could be done and typically only betweeen babies in ages 4-6 months. We consulted 3 specialists before meeting Dr Jimenez and all denied the endo procedure immediately. Dr Jimenez was willing able to do the surgery the very next day! Gia was officially 7.5 at the time of her surgery. We are now 9 months post op and doing amazing! Thank God for Dr Jimenez and his loving hands, our baby will never know the pain and scars of CVR.

Dr. Jimenez did my carpal tunnel surgery about 6 years ago. I have no visible scar and no issues. He is always so kind and seems truly concerned with how I am doing. I highly recommend him. Thank you Dr. J.

Erica, I am sorry that you had this experience....Read More
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.

Ginger Ramirez in San Antonio, TX – Jun 13, 2017
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!!
