VERY FORTUNATE TO HAVE HER IN CNY!

Dr Tovar Spinoza is not only an incredible compassionate person but also a great brain surgeon that is not only updated on the latest treatments but she CREATES the latest technologies. She used the new laser on my son's brainstem tumor when he was not responding to chemotherapy anymore and we had no more options. Thanks to her he is alive and the tumor is gone! She is always available for us, she never rests. God bless her forever and allow us to keep her in CNY. She is so famous abroad that probably someone will offer her a better job. Thank you Dr Spinoza!

Amazing Dr.

We recently had twins and one had a sacral dimple, which in some cases can cause serious problems. Of course I was terrified. Dr Spinoza not only took time to explain all that had to be done but she also took the time to comfort me and she showed true sincere compassion towards us. She hugged me when I cried, she explained things so that I could understand what to expect, she showed great affection towards our baby. She is amazing and we are so thankful she was our babies Dr.

She's a Rock Star!

My son was diagnosed with a brain tumor that needed immediate removal. We found out Jan 11 and had surgery Jan 14th. Dr. Tovar-Spinoza answered all of our questions and put us at ease. (as much as one can be) I highly reccommend her to anyone requiring pediatric neuro.
