What People Say About Dr. Ricky Medel, MD

Dr. Medel performed deep brain stimulation surgery on my husband and we were 100% satisfied with every step of the process. Although DSB surgery has become fairly common, it is a multi-step process that includes coordination with the surgeon, neurologist and the neuropsychologist. Dr. Medel and his staff were friendly, professional, informative, and extremely cooperative each step of the way. I would highly recommend Dr. Medel

Medel was chosen through the VA to treat a service connected injury I had sustained. Medel is very reluctant in explaining his diagnosis with patiences & gives the impression that you are a waste of his time. My appointments with him have been frequently cut short & even cancelled by his office at the last minute because of other calls. And even after him performing surgery, my symptoms have only increased and I am currently looking for another Dr to correct what the VA already paid him to fix.
