Terrible experience. He could not wait to do surgery, but after the fact... He was not helpful and seemed to care less about my recovery experience and return to work. Can I put zero stars?

best doctor that I've ever seen!!! support staff has a lot to be desired!!! Call for prescription to be refilled and they are not taking care of!!!! each time I am giving a different version of what should happen. and this don't seem to be a problem with just me.. have been in office waiting room and seen numerous patients come in with the same problem. not a good situation for the patients.

Without you I would be lost, you gave me my life back ,You are the best doctor who had operated me, not even the German doctors can so well operate,you are unaffordable, normally nobody can pay what you do.Thank you for the surgery ....your Christine Cofer

He absolutely obliterated my husband's back and ruined his future. We now have teams of specialists trying to correct the damage that he had done. Please, try another doctor! Save yourselves!

While friendly andcknowledgable Dr Roybal frequently leaves you waiting for up to 2 hours - often then his PA shows up - and she is nice but often cannot answer all questions. The office staff is unfriendly and unhelpful. You - the patient are not treated well here
