He has done two surgeries on me. He is very straight and to the point. Caring but, no candy coating here. I have fully recovered. He is patient and kind. Follow up is clear and concise. I would recommend him to anyone. He has also doe several surgeries on friends of mine. They were also satisfied with the care that they recieved from Dr. Corales.
Dr. Corales is an exceptional physician. I've had surgery for massive puitatary adneoma and L5-S1 lower back surgery. I can not begin to express how much he has helped me over the years and his bedside manner is incredible when you're in the hospital and recovering. Out of the many many visits, 99% of the time I had a max. of a 2 min. wait to see him. I was to have surgery in B.R. maybe 80 miles away and waited to see the neurosurgeon 6 hours for a pre-op visit, walked out and canceled the surgery and found I could drive 60 miles each way, see a much more respected reputable expert and be back home or work 1/2 the time that I was wasting in B.R. And Dr. Corales gives each of his patients VIP treatment in the hospital. He has a huge heart as well.
