      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

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
