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.
