My office visit, was my first follow up, post hand surgery. First impressions are always important, the receptionist(Janelly), was pleasant, understanding, and efficient. I arrived early for my appointment, and was taken to the room on time. Dr. Balaguer was on time, answered all my questions, and put me at ease. Unlike some other surgeons that I have dealt with in my life, Dr. Balaguer's soft skills were excellent. Most import his skills as a hand surgeon are incredible. It was clear that the office staff worked as a team, with positive energy , and a goal to make the patients visit as positive as possible.

I had surgery with Dr.Pino, the whole experience was better then expected. He even called me the day after surgery to see how I was doing. His assistant was always available to answer all of my questions or concerns, now a days that kind of attention is unheard of.

I suffered from a bulging disc into the spinal canal and it caused intense pain. I was fortunate enough to find Dr. Amar but I still feared surgery. He understood my feelings and sent me to physical therapy. After four additional weeks of pain, an atrophied leg and the affects it caused to my life and career, I decided to have surgery. In the recovery room I realized my pain was gone and the nightmare was over. Dr. Amar is an exceptional health care person. He is not only a skilled Doctor but also a caring and compassionate person. I knew from the moment I met him that I was with the right Doctor. He helped me understand my condition, showed he cared and had concern for what I was dealing with and how it affected my life and then he had the skills to fix it. He gave me my life back! Thank you Dr. Amar!

Dr Rajadhyaksha is an amazing Doctor! He came highly recommended to me by my own Doctor, which was already enough to know he was very good in his field. This was further confirmed when I met him. His professionalism and dedication were obvious in how he was able to explain the problem of my cracked disc in simple, easy to understand way that settled my nerves and made me confident that surgery was absolutely the best course of action to fix the problem. I highly recommend Dr Amar to everyone!
