What People Say About Dr. Ruben Diaz, MD

I went to Dr Diaz because I injured my shoulder. He immediately sent me for an MRI to determine the extent of my injury. The MRI indicated I need surgery so he sent me to a surgeon. I have to say Dr Diaz is probably the nicest and most competent doctor I have ever been to. His staff is equally superb. My only complaint is that Dr Diaz did not offer ANYTHING for pains relief on the initial visit. Then two weeks later, after MRI , he was still did not offer ANYTHING for pain,

One of the kindest doctors I have ever seen. He takes a great amount of time making sure to address your every need. He then assesses everything that can be done to get you feeling better. His staff is sweet, upbeat and positive.

My husband has had chronic pain for over 15 years since an injury in the military. After visiting many doctors seeking help, we were finally beginning to resign ourselves to the idea that there was no hope for him to live a life without debilitating spinal pain. The only other option he was given was to turn to narcotic meds, which did not help him at all. Dr. Diaz is the first doctor ever to devise a treatment plan that is actually alleviating the pain that he has lived with daily.

My family doctor of almost 9 years, of whom I trust, recommended me to Dr. Diaz. I am currently being treated for osteoarthritis. Through the initial consult and the ongoing treatment, Dr. Diaz, the receptionists and the assistants involved have shown professionalism, patience with this patient and pride in there work and facility. From only one procedure my pain has improved. And with further treatment I trust it will improve even more. The Conservative Spine and Joint Center is trustworthy.

Dr. Diaz is a wonderful doctor. He is understanding, compassionate and thorough, but most importantly he listens and educates me (the patient) about my conditions.

Dr. Diaz was incredibly unprofessional and disrespectful to my husband at his appointment. He accused him of being an opiate abuser because he had used pain pills after a painful shoulder surgery a year ago. And then several months ago he had a cyst in both eyes, one which became infected (very rare). My husband made no mention of wanting pain pills for his back that he injured a month ago. We were only there to hopefully get a diagnosis and a treatment plan. It was a horrible experience!!!
