Dr Lopez was very rude and wouldn’t even let me talk! He said my two page MRI results said everything was normal! Told me if he had seen me in the ER he would have sent me home with nothing! I will never go back here, I was in tears when I left!

He did my back surgery and after being released from recovery I walked to my room and sat for 5 minutes and walked and walked with no discomfort. I walked out of hospital same day. This is day 7 and still feeling GREAT haven't used any pain medication for 6 days.

I would never refer anyone to go here. His bedside manner is atrocious. His accent makes it very hard to undertand him, which is fine if he took the time to slow down and explain things when you ask, but he doesn't. Not only does he take offense to you asking him to explain, he gets very angry. He rolls his eyes when ask a question and walks away from you. He leaves the operatory without a clear diagnosis and solution. Everything about this experience was awful. I would give 0 stars if I could.

I had read some reviews stating that Dr. Lopez was rude to patients. That was an understatement, I could have dealt with rudeness alone. He denied a previous diagnosis made by another professional in his own practice. After which he did not offer his own opinion on a diagnosis or offer help for my pain. He didn't even give me any direction. It was as though he was refusing to help me or lacked the knowledge to do so. He left the exam room without a word. I was extremely disappointed.
