Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

BILLING NIGHTMARE
I had back surgery back in November of 2019 with great success and I feel so much better but I will never recommend Dr. Salinas to anyone. Dr. Salinas ended up using Doctors that were out of my network without my authorization. So I ended up having doctors coming after me for almost $15.000 dollars BECAUSE OF THAT DR. SALINAS DID. DOCTORS CAN NOT TREAT YOU OUTSIDE YOUR NETWORK WITH OUT YOUR AUTHORIZATION AND HE HAD 3 DOCTORS TREAT ME WITHOUT MY AUTHORIZATION. At the date of my surgery they told me what my portion was. I setup a payment plan and even paid if off early. Then his billing department calls me Feb 2022 to tell me that there was a billing mistake and my insurance did not cover it all and I owe them another $600!!! So please be careful with this Dr. and his billing. Also Dr. Salinas has awful bed side manner and he hasn't even called me one time to check on how I'm doing after a L5S1 360 fusion.

I highly recommend Dr. Salinas. I had 360 lumbar fusion in mid-December 2020. My sciatic nerve pain was gone instantly. I was up and walking the day of the surgery. I only had to stay in the hospital 1 night. I was concerned with needing to have spine surgery and did a lot of research and reading reviews. Dr. Salinas stood out in the reviews--higher number of positive reviews, higher number of surgeries performed, higher number of hospital affiliations than any other neurosurgeon in the Frisco, Tx area. The staff at Frisco Spine are all very caring and personable. Before, Dr. Salinas ordered physical therapy and steroid injections, but those did little to relieve my sciatic nerve pain in my right leg. The recovery after surgery was not as bad as I had anticipated. I only needed 1 night of the morphine IV pump in the hospital, and just a couple of nights of hydrocodone once I was home. Acetaminophen was my primary pain reliever for a few weeks afterward, slowly reducing the dosage.

I’ve been going to Dr Salinas for 3 years now and I couldn’t love it anymore!!!!! He is awesome and so is his staff! Regardless the time of day I call they always call me right back and tell me exactly what to do! (Granted it most of the time results me to going to the hospital and a surgery following) He eases all of my concerns and worries! I wouldn’t pick anyone else to do it brain surgeries ??
