Patient Comments (9)

I had a case of C6 radiculopathy. Dr Pires explained everything to me very thoroughly, was very friendly, and really spent the time to answer my questions thoroughly. He even gave me some exercises to help prevent any issues in the future. Definitely the best doctor I've seen in the last few weeks...more

I was referred to Dr. Pires my my neurosurgeon in Los Angeles. He reviewed my MRI with me in our consult and discussed the game plan in detail. 2 months later after the minimally invasive surgery he performed on my low back, I am standing upright and back to running daily.

Having had back pain for years, Dr Pires has set me on the path to pain-free living. Dr Pires' bedside manor, his willingness to take time to discuss and answer any questions thoroughly is outstanding! I can't say enough about my experience
