No, not likelihood to recommend Dr. Saiz to family and friends. He scheduled me to have cervical spine surgery and knew all of my medical testings I had done prior to my scheduled surgery. He went ahead and did an open large incision on the front of my neck only to close me up and sent me home. He hasn't gotten back to me my calls go unanswered. He also billed my Insurance for $62,0000 for something he didn't do. I am still in extreme pain. Do not call or make appointments with this doctor.

Dr. Paul Saiz has been my doctor Since 2007. I have received excellent care and medical advice from him. I trust him with my health and I know he is a great doctor dealing with spinal issues. Thank you Dr. Saiz Bests, Darrin Sweatt d.sweatt@hotmail.com

Had a 9:00 am appt. and arrived on time, however, there were three people ahead of me, so I did not sign in until 9:03, so my appt. got cancelled because "the doctor is very busy and will not see anyone who is not "on time". If you have an appt. with this doctor I would suggest you be at least 15 minutes early, and then hope he is "on time".

Researched before my wife in for her surgery. Supposedly the best in the area. Maybe, but after care stinks. He never saw my wife after the procedure and after care appointment were very difficult to set up with him. The couple of times we saw him, he would never admit that the problems my wife is still having has anything to do with her back. Guess again, it does. My recommendation is to find someone in El Paso. My wife cannot get proper care in Las Cruces and we are looking else where.

After having major back surgery I was left a cripple. Then when I wanted to see him after about one year he could not take the time to see me. He had his assistant see me with a new injury. He would not have the decency to come and say hello to me or talk to me about my new injury. Not happy with the results of my surgery or the after c are from him. Beware!!
