Arizona Neurosurgery and Spine At The CORE Institute

Neurosurgery

Phoenix, AZ

The reviews listed below were collected independently of Arizona Neurosurgery and Spine At The CORE Institute through rater8. Each review represents an authentic and verified patient experience.

I have never left a negative review on anyone or any place of business before. After waiting for more than 30 min in a room, Dr. Menendez finally came in and spent less than 3 min with me. He seemed annoyed right off the bat. I have never felt like I was more of a waste of someone's time or an inconvenience than I did with Dr. Menendez, and he pretty much told me that I was. Despite having a previous spinal fusion and laminectomy and currently being in excruciating pain for more than a month with limited mobility, I left with no plan or guidance for immediate pain relief of any kind and an appointment 6 weeks from now with his PA in Phoenix to look at an MRI that may or may not happen. I'm sorry I was such a waste of your time Dr. Menendez. The feeling was mutual. Patients, and people in general, should never be treated the way I was treated today. If your family member had been dismissed as I had, I doubt you would have been okay with it. Do better.

Amazingly confident, humble and genuine. Dr. took my case wholehearted and was attentive to the urgency of my needs. God Bless you Dr., the Lord put you in my path today. Please keep your heart open to helping those who lose hope. Thank you! Thank you!

Dr. Menendez is a great neurosurgeon & physician. He performed an ACDF and was kind and patient with all the questions and concerns of procedure. Would recommend to anyone needing a neurosurgeon.

No me gustó la forma que me atendió, no sentí que entendió mi problema cuando en realidad esperaba que fuera más paciente y me escuchara un poco más .

Over one hour of waiting for a 3min review of my MRI. Didn't offer much in terms of details or explanation. And didn’t have my images ready for review. I had to provide the facility name that performed the MRI so that the doctor could retrieve them. Not well prepared and this could've been done by phone call.

I waited over 1hr and 30min before spending about 5min. with the Dr.. I like Dr. Menedez, but he is over booked.
