I had a great experience here. They were incredibly polite and accommodating. I got in, gave my information and was sitting for maybe 2 minutes before they took me in to see the doctor. They had great recommendations for which doctors to see next. Highly recommend.

My consult with Dr. Soldevilla was refreshing and we fealt that all our questions and more were throughly answered. He suggested other practioners for a second oppinion and had excellant bed side manner. Did not feel rushed although it was a very busy day for him.

I will forever hate this man with a passion. My boyfriend went in for a simple procedure. The first appt prior to his surgery was 5 minutes long. Soldevillas office was closing so he rushed through the appt. Didnt tell us what to expect or any risks to the surgery. My boyfriend now has no feeling in his left leg, arthritis in his hip, and severe sciatica. Soldevilla picked up his nerve 20 times during first surgery. Thats 19 additional times !

In April 2016 I went in to have Dr. Soldevilla perform a one hour outpatient implant of a neurostimulator on my spine. During the procedure a hole was punctured in my spinal cord leading to five weeks in the hospital, many months of therapy and incomplete paralysis from the middle of my back down. I am now confined to a wheel chair for all but very short distances. I have little to no feeling in any of my lower extremities. This is a permanent condition.

Many weeks ago, I left a very negative review. That was before I eventually found out that I had a ruptured disc. Dr. Soldevilla performed surgery 12 days ago. Dr. Soldevilla, his staff, and everyone I met through the Meridian Park hospital system were wonderful, caring people, I cannot compliment them enough. My initial anger reflected by agonizing pain, was because of insurance denying an MRI. I felt I was being blown off by the system, ended up in the ER. Dr. Soldevilla and staff: THANK YOU

If you are looking for a doctor that is very knowledgeable, trustworthy and excellent bed side manners Dr. Soldevilla is that doctor. His whole staff is amazing they make you feel appreciated every time you see them. Easy to make appointments, fast response on refill requests and follow up is amazing! During office visits they take there time making sure all your questions and concerns are addressed. After my surgery Dr. Soldevilla checked on me within 2 hours, his PA also checked in on me.
