Patient Testimonials – San Antonio, TX

Here are a few small snippets from some of the thousands of patients who’ve found true relief from their back, neck and spine pain at Neurosurgery & Spine Consultants.

 

“Awesome place!! Dr. Zavala is down to earth and very knowledgeable.”

– MV, patient

 

“Dr. Zavala is a life-saver. He saved my quality of life. He is very professional and has a great bedside manner. Dr. Zavala has been an advocate for me in the healthcare system as well. At the office when I call I always receive a call back or speak to someone right away. I was having terrible pain — so much so that I could not stand or walk. I explained this to the staff and they made sure as soon as I arrived for my appointment that I had a place to lay down. I have never had a doctor’s office provide me with that level of service. Emergency on call is also great. I have called a few times and I always received a call back in less than 30 minutes. I will not go to another neurosurgeon. In my opinion, Dr. Zavala is the best.”

“Dr. Osama Ahmed is an excellent doctor. He took the time to explain every procedure that was available for me. Several diagnostic tests were ordered to enable him to give me a good treatment plan. Dr. Ahmed told me my case was a very difficult case. He gave me examples of two ways my surgery could be done and left the option to me. He has a genuine concern for his patients. I love the fact that he talked to me, not at me.”

– VM, patient

 

“In 2012, I fell a couple of times and messed up my lower back. The doctor I visited in Germany told me my surgery was out of the question, as it would be too dangerous. Got a second opinion a few months later here in San Antonio while visiting my daughters and was told the same. The doctor in San Antonio fitted me with a back brace. Now in 2016 I went to an orthopedic surgeon because when I walked I had that pain going down my leg and it was getting worse by the month. I thought my artificial hip was causing the pain. To my surprise, it was not my hip, it was my spine causing that pain and the orthopedist referred me to Dr. Albert, the best referral I ever got, because Dr. Albert told me that he could help and he did so on 25 Aug 2016. I’m still wearing a heavy duty brace but now I have no more pain when walking and I hope to stay pain free for the rest of my life. Going to this clinic is always a good experience, the staff is very nice and helpful.”

– EB, patient

“Dr. Zavala II is amazing. I’ve been under his care for years, and he really lets me be in control of my care plan and recommends different options. I would recommend him to anyone.”

– AL, patient

 

“I am very impressed with this group. I have only had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Ahmed for a consultation and he has accepted me as a patient. He is very caring and interested in helping me with my brain injury. I have already been set up for a new brain scan, so I am very hopeful that they can help me with my damage to improve my wellbeing.”

“Excellent place. Dr. Zavala is an excellent doctor with a wonderful bedside manner. He performed my spine surgery with great results, when other doctors didn’t give me much hope. He also performed my husband’s carpal tunnel surgery with great results. I HIGHLY recommend them.”
