It has been a pleasure to be treated by Dr. Dieguez and his staff. I first consulted him after my chronic pain exacerbated significantly, limiting all my activities of daily living. I has severe shooting pains in my hips, legs and joints which appeared to be musculoskeletal in nature. I returned to my orthopedist, who tried a number of treatment modalities, including rest, PT and various medications. While this pain subsided and I improved marginally, the improvements quickly disappeared when I resumed my normal daily activities. My orthopedist couldn’t find any structural issues or any other reason for the pain. He recommended that I consult either a neurologist or pain management specialist. A neighbor of mine, who had very similar symptoms and issues was treated by Dr. Dieguez and had a very positive outcome. He highly recommended and encouraged me to consult Dr. Dieguez, which I did shortly thereafter.
I was really impressed from the outset with Dr. Dieguez, his staff and his practice environment. His staff is friendly, courteous, helpful, informative, and professional. They are truly committed to patient care. The handled all of the insurance issues, scheduling and referrals for further tests efficiently and cheerfully, thereby minimizing patient stress and inconvenience. His staff is very positive, supportive and encouraging, which creates a very welcoming, comfortable and therapeutic environment. The single most impressive attribute of Dr. Dieguez and his staff is their timeliness and punctuality. My appointments almost always start on time and I don’t ever remember waiting more than 5 minutes for any appointment.
Dr. Dieguez is a dedicated, gifted and talented physician who truly understands and cares about his patient’s needs, concerns and well being. I was initially struck by his thoroughness, attention to detail and interest in my medical history.
He actually read the extensive medical history forms that I had been given to fill out, asked pertinent questions, and addressed my concerns. He was able to quickly evaluate and diagnose my condition with a minimum of additional tests, and begin a treatment regimen to control and alleviate the intensity of my chronic pain symptoms. The treatment of my spinal stenosis with cortisone epidural injections produced a quick and dramatic positive effect, alleviating and minimizing 90% of my pain and symptoms. I have been able to resume almost all of my activities of daily living with a minimum of discomfort.
