Dr. Jaime Nieto conducted surgery on my mother due to Lumbar Herniated Disc Symptoms My mother had complained about pain symptoms for many years. she described pains like: Leg pain (sciatica), numbness, weakness and tingling in the leg, she also had lower back pain and pain in the buttock. Dr. Nieto treatment and attention to my mother has been impressive. My mother overall health improved a lot and her motivation to continue on with her daily activities has peak. Dr. Nieto, Thank you.
I think his bedside manner is not good at all. If he feels you are not worthy of surgery, he will easily dismiss your issues as if they are not important. And, he will have his NP only examine you. Not impressed at all.
