    I had to have a herniated disc in my neck replace and the vertebrae fused. Dr. Diaz is excellent at what he does. I would trust him with life again and would recommend him to anyone who needs to neurosurgery done.

    Dr Diaz saved my life 15 years ago and for that I will always be grateful. At the time I had a vascular malformation that nobody in GR wanted to operate on. Dr Diaz took one look at the MRI and said, I think I can get that. He did successfully resect the malformation and I have done very well as a result. In addition to a skillful surgeon he is also a great man.
    Thank you for taking the time to review Dr. Diaz! Dr. Diaz is so grateful for his patients and we are so happy to hear you are doing very well!

    Very disappointing experience. He tells you how he can help you and solve your issues then when you go back it's like he never said it. Don't know why he's considered top doc. I know three people that have gone to him with the same outcome as stated.
