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.

Ordered an MRI which showed that I had nodules on my thyroid. Recommended that I see an Endocrionologist. They will biopsy nodes on 9/21/2016. I would not have found out about te nodules except for the MRI.

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.

I have been looking for the longest time for a great physician and finally found him. Most considerate, awesome bed manners and really old school. You will NOT find any other physician like him. I have already referred my whole family to him. He staff is all extremely nice and helpful. This people really care about their patients!!!
in Atlanta, GA |
Excellent. Look for all possible treatment alternatives. Provided a realistic goal for my problems. Helped me avoid surgery. Highly recommended.
in Winder, GA |
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!!!
This comment was not from the patient. Second the patient was not acussed of anything. He became upset that I mentioned the results of the GPDMP showing he had multiple schedule 2 prescriptions in the last year from different providers, information which he did not provide in our initial patient questionnaire, nor when asked which pain medications he has been given in the last year. I informed the patient that we were an Interventional clinic and not a chronic opiate medication management clinic
