Patient Comments (2)
in Surprise, AZ |
Should have written this in Jan 2007 after Dr. Albuquerque saved my life. I had a ruptured brain aneurysm in Wickenburg AZ. Was helicoptered to Barrows on a Sunday evening where Dr. Albuquerque inserted a titanium coil into my brain. Recovery was very rapid. I am lucky to have no after effects. At my age now, 79, I do lose nouns but attribute it to age. I have not met him or visited his office so can't address that but have had multiple brain scans since 2007 with no further problems.

He did a wonderful job, but I had to ask to meet him. I did not meet him pre-op for either surgery. I trusted Dr. Nakaji's referral. I never met with him at the office., only hi Fellow.
