I saw him for a C2-C3 facet join issue. He takes great care in explaining what the problem is and how he'd treat it. I'd definitely recommend him.

I have a very old neck injury combined with a long career in law enforcement. Dr. Assil took time to examine and connect symptoms in my arm to my neck and created a path to health I have looked for for years. Great office staff and prompt, caring assistants make it the whole package.

I have extreme lower back/buttock pain and to make matters worse I recently fell. So I drove from LA to visit Assil at Los Robles and I presented spine mri,ct, and x-rays from 7-8 months back. The facility said they could take x-rays there on spot as well. I requested to get x-rays taken because I am covered for this but most importantly so I could compare with previous images to see if there was any damages from when I fell. Common sense, right? Assil said this would not be necessary and within a few minutes he diagnosed me with sciatica. He seemed busy and eager to see his next appointments and the whole process was rushed. His cure was to get a steroid injection at a different location a month later, which is a long wait when you're in pain. I was given a script for pain pills for a month. I went to a different doctor and presented new imaging that Assil refused to give. It turns out I had a fractured tailbone. Although the staff was friendly I did not feel the same from him.

I was in soooo much pain from my sciatica. Dr Assil recommended an epidural. I can’t tell you how awesome I feel after the procedure! My only regret is that I didn't do this sooner! Yes sometimes you might wait a while before the doctor comes into the room, but it is definitely worth the wait.

First of all, Dr. Assil is the greatest. During my initial visit, he listened so attentively (something not readily found these days). He explained everything to me. His staff took all my time and lifestyle restraints into consideration and arranged the procedure that he recommended. I have tremendous respect and faith in his work. In addition, his office staff and the nursing staff at the Saxon Surgery Center are great at their jobs, made me feel very comfortable, and couldn't have been more helpful.

Over the course of many years of back and leg pains which had progressed to a point where it was affecting my quality of life, my primary physician referred me to Dr. Kaymar Assil. After his examination, etc. he ultimately suggested the Superior Vertiflex Spacer procedure. That being said I walked into the outpatient clinic where in Dr. Assil implanted two spacers. About 2 hours later, I walked out of the clinic. It was an amazing difference and so easy. That was in late October 2018 and now, six months later I have a 90% improvement in my pain level. For me it was an amazing difference and so easy. Prior to the procedure I could not be on my feet more that an hour or two without having to sit down. Today, I can go all day with virtually no issues. Sure a few aches and pains but at age 80 that is expected. Many thanks to Dr. Assil and the procedure he recommended and performed. I highly recommend you meet with Dr. Assil and avail yourself of his extensive medical experience.

I could not be happier with my results. I was diagnosed with spinal stenosis and had severe back and leg pain, with numbness and tingling in my legs and feet.Dr. Assil was a real life saver. He inserted the Superion implant and the relief was immediate. Dr. Assil was very kind, easy to talk to and answered all my questions the office staff and the staff at the Saxon Surgery center are amazing If you are experiencing pain like I was I urge you to go see Dr.Assil.

Dr Assil is kind and patient and gentle. It is easy to get an appointment, and if you need a procedure, you never have to wait more than two weeks. He has done one epidural injection, which worked when another Dr had said it wouldn’t. I am now scheduled for an injection in another spot in my messed up back.
