Dr. Ozuna is the best in his field of expertise, equaled only by his truly caring for his patients. Dr, Ozuna can truly feel his patient's pain and is able to eliminate most of his patients pain completely or, at the very least, lessens it significantly. Patients come from all over the world to see Dr, Ozuna. We are very fortunate to have him available to us. May he be blessed in direct proportion to his 'second to none' ability to diagnose and prescribe the perfect medical solution.

Dr. Ozuna treated my mother who had been brushed off by several other doctors. He examined her, read her MRIs, explained her condition and how he would fix it. While spine surgery is very scary, Dr. Ozuna was confident and expected a very good outcome - which he provided. He answers all questions and is kind, realistic, and extremely competent. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Ozuna or go to him myself.

This was an awful experience. I would not call Ozuna a doctor. I went to him with sever pain and he did not know what I have. I went to a physiatrist after he failed to diagnose me and the physiatrist knew immediately that I need rotator cuff surgery. Not only Ozuna was completely ignorant but dismissive and down right rude. He should not hold the title doctor or director. Michael Hoda

I had a limp with bulging discs in my lower back and Dr.Ozuna was my savior . It brought me back to life and everything since was been fine (knock on wood) =)
