I previously had a bad experience with a previous provider who had poor bedside manners. I almost didn’t come back but saw I had an appointment with a different provider. Dr. Soto was empathetic of my situation with my MVA. He listened to what I had to say about my pain and we discussed the plan of action together. I definitely recommend him as a physician.

Finally, after a month and half from my ER visit for excruciating back/leg pain, I’ve finally found a doctor who took the time to explain to me, in words I could understand, the results of my MRI and the epidural procedure that will hopefully get me back to my usual lifestyle. Dr. Soto made sure I understood what he was telling me, and he was very detailed about the procedure and what I can expect so I can prepare accordingly. It’s truly a nice change to see a specialty doctor who gives his patients much more than 10 minutes of his time!

Dr. Soto gave me my life back! I have a genetic disorder that affects joints and connective tissue. It is a very painful disorder. I spent biggest part of the day in bed, couldn't go shopping or even out to a movie! Had seen multiple pain specialist and over several years was prescribed a lot of different meds. He took the time to listen and to hear Me! Two years later and I'm out of bed, I can walk around with no assistance! He literally gave me my life back!

At this point I have only had a first visit with Dr. Soto. His professionalism, personality, and spot-on recommendation for my future care was amazing. Looks like there may actually be hope for a pain free future after 40 years of pill pushers and ... I don't even know the right word for the others. . If you have chronic severe pain, you've got nothing to lose and a future to gain. I would recommend him without hesitation.

Dr. Soto has been very attentive during office visits to what I am saying. He has been great about diagnosing and treating my post-spinal cord surgery arachnoiditis and bulging disc pain. His office staff has very pleasant and prompt about addressing requests. I am very satisfied with the care I receive from Dr. Soto and his staff. I would highly recommend him to anyone with pain uncontrolled by a primary care provider or specialist!
