In 1993, Dr. Corales did a back surgery which corrected my problem that orthopedic doctors had treated me for over a year without any success.

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.
