What People Say About Dr. Gabriel Garcia-Diaz, MD

Dr Garcia-Diaz has an outstanding bedside manner which is especially important when a patient is in pain. I have a procedure tomorrow with Dr Garcia-Diaz and expect outstanding results as he has performed a successful procedure for me previously. I especially want to thank Dr Garcia-Diaz for the selection of his staff, they have been so kind, courteous and professional. Ivana, surgery scheduler, has gone above and beyond in being kind and understanding. I have made several calls to her and she has never acted rushed or impatient and always answered my questions to my satisfaction. If she’s unable to answer my call she always returns the call in a timely manner. Kindness and expertise is especially important to patients in pain, so thank you Dr Garcia-Diaz and staff!!

Let me start off by saying Dr Garcia Diaz is a wonderful Doctor and has made my life so much better with almost no pain after my procedure. His staff is also very friendly and the environment is so nice and refreshing and the cleanest I’ve seen. I also would like to mention Ivana who I probably kept asking many questions everyday and she always was friendly, she made me feel very comfortable and at ease. I can say I am for the most part pain free and appreciate so much how above and beyond this office goes for patient care.

Dr. Garcia-Diaz is an exceptional spine surgeon specialist. He is very helpful and kind every time I come in and out, which is greatly supported by the surgery scheduler Ivana. She is the sweetest and kindest person and makes scheduling a breeze not only for me but for everyone who needs her service.

I would like to say how professional and helpful this office is , they have been very patient with me because I have some complicated issues. I would like to thank and point out miss ivana I did not know what to do on a couple issues I had and she worked things out so I did not worry about anything and that took a lot of me. Drs are great too they seem genuinely concerned and make feel relaxed.

Dr. Garcia Diaz did my surgery as an emergency patient. I was scared but he made me feel at ease and confident that i would be OK. He did an amazing job with the surgery and my back hasn't felt this good in the last 10 years!!

Great Dr and staff! The team dynamic works very well, Garcia Diaz is very understanding and explains things in ways that make it easy to follow along. Does not fluff things, tell you in reality how things would be and doesn't push things onto you.
