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!!

Needed another neck surgery. Tried to hold off but Dr Saiz operated on my neck and my arm feels better, Should have had the surgery sooner. I like the doc...he takes the time and explains what he is gonna do.
