Testimonials What Clients Say

“I’m now able to go shopping and for long walks with my husband! I have my old life back! Thank you!”

“Because of Dr. Martinez and his competent and caring staff, I have been able to live a full and enjoyable life despite my disabilities.”

“It’s because of you that I am walking today. We will be forever grateful to you and your dream team.”

“It’s 30 days post-op and I seem to be walking much better. It’s really amazing what these people do to give you your life back.”

Why a Second Medical Opinion with SBS?

Sometimes patients question their Physician’s diagnosis or treatment protocol, i.e., choosing conservative therapy that may not be effective, or maybe being offered surgery when it isn’t medically indicated. Or maybe the patient has questions or concerns that aren’t being adequately addressed. It is reasonable and many times prudent to seek a second opinion from a respected physician, to agree or disagree with the original physician’s assessment.
