Staff was efficient and professional. Dr. Lopez was thorough and answered all my questions. A positive experience during an awful injury
He’s an excellent doctor very very experienced wonderful wonderful bedside manner
Fantastic professional care from Dr. Lopez and staff at his Little Silver office. I set up an appointment for severe shoulder pain. XRays were taken onsite and it was determined that I had bone spurs and a possible pinched nerve in my right shoulder. Dr. Lopez was thorough in establishing his prognosis.
I was given a shot to alleviate the pain, prescriptions for muscle relaxers and physical therapy and a follow up appointment in several weeks.
The experience was well managed. The team seems organized and efficient. I had been receiving treatment for an existing condition and the transition was smooth. Covid protocol was thorough.
My surgery experience was amazing. I would highly recommend!
