My experience here was very good. The doctor was ber knowledgeable and thoroughly explained what is going on with my back and offered several options to work with the issue. He was also patient and kind offering his opinions and answering my questions

Dr. Saldua took time to carefully explain the cause of my condition using MRI images then fully described treatment options and risks. When I decided it was time for surgery, he repeated that information to ensure I was comfortable proceeding and understood the recovery process. The treatment was successful, the staff helped arrange therapy to speed recovery, and I couldn't be happier.

Exception care, explained all facets of treatment. Truly cares for patients well being and recovery process. Would definitely recommend to all needing care of this nature.

Orca health was very helpful in providing useful information regarding my condition and the treatment. I am feeling much more confident regarding the outcome of my surgery.

My experience with Dr. Saldua was nothing but one of the best that I have had with any doctor patient relationship. He is very professional and the nurses and other staff, I have nothing but good things to say about them My spine surgery went better than I expected and have been pain free for the last 7 months. I would highly recommend him and his staff. Mark Ritter
