Reviews And Testimonials From Our Patients

  • I've been to Doc Diaz before and would recommend her to anyone. Her staff is awesome, too. It is a very pleasant experience to visit their office. I trust Dr. Diaz completely.

    Lousie L. July 26, 2020
  • Dr. Diaz performed a Laterjet procedure on my shoulder in February of this year. I've had other surgeries in the past and can say that Dr. Diaz is the best I've ever worked with. She called me several times in the days after surgery to make sure I was doing okay, and still makes herself available to answer any questions I may have. She's been in direct contact with my physical therapist throughout the whole process (something I've never seen before). On top of that, my shoulder is recovering faster than anticipated, which speaks to her skill as a surgeon. I would highly recommend Dr. Diaz to anyone in need of a shoulder surgeon.

  • Thank you Dr. Diaz! I game down from Upstate NY for an evaluation on my hand for Dupuytren,'s contraction. Not only could you help me you were able to do it that same day. You and your staff were very accommodating, efficient, and personable. I loved your bedside manner Dr. Diaz and the way I was treated with respect and made to feel comfortable. You set me up with a hand therapist for the next day, I was fitted for a splint, and was on a plane home a day later. Procedure was awesome and I have full use of my hand for the first time in years. Best thing is I can throw and catch with my granddaughter! Thank you for helping me Dr. Diaz and for making my experience so rewarding. You are the best!

  • Dr. Diaz has relieved my Dupuytren's contracture on both hands, most recently on April 2, 2020, taking extra precautions to provide a sterile environment during the pandemic. Dr. Diaz is simply the best in her profession in all respects. She and her staff are to be commended for their care and dedication.

  • I saw Dr Diaz a while ago for elbow issue, and she was extremely knowledgeable and thorough. However, I am commenting about a different issue. I just got off the phone with whoever does her scheduling, and she was extremely nice, informative, and helpful. You need to know that she represents your office very well!
