He does not listen at all, my husband who is the most quiet person in the world was offended by the way he talked to us, He did surgery in December on my lower back.. It hurts everyday!!!!

I was experiencing lots of pain as a result of spinal stenosis. Dr. Arguelles performed corrective surgery and I have had absolutely no pain since the surgery which was nearly two years ago.
