Dr Saldua was up front with me about my upcoming procedure. I feel extremely comfortable about him do the surgery!

very thorough explanation and easily assessible

I have only had the initial consultation but felt very comfortable with Dr Saldua. He went over xrays and MRI and it was very obvious I had a problem area that surgery may help. We are going forward so we'll see.

No mention about driving after the surgery. I assume there is no medical reason that would prevent me from driving after surgery. I also assume then that the post surgery treatment plan or Dr orders will not restrict me from driving. Please confirm this.

I was very satisfied with my consultation with Dr. Saldua. His explanation of my current problems related to my spine was thorough and understandable. The main point of the discussion was that surgery is a last choice option and should not be rushed into. For that I was most grateful. I am thankful to have Dr. Saldua as my care provider.
