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!!!
