“I am totally pleased with the primary care I'm getting here at NW Neurosurgical Associates your health is monitored, concerns addressed and you are listened to. The whole staff is polite and welcoming. Dr. Soldevilla is a gem.”
“If you are looking for a doctor that is very knowledgeable, trustworthy and excellent bedside manners Dr. Soldevilla is that doctor. His whole staff is amazing they make you feel appreciated every time you see them. Easy to make appointments, fast response on refill requests and follow up is amazing! During office visits, they take their time making sure all your questions and concerns are addressed. After my surgery Dr. Soldevilla checked on me within two hours, his PA also checked in on me.”
“Dr. Soldevilla is a very skilled physician and extremely competent in his field. I felt very comfortable going "under the knife" for my brain surgery, a brain shunt placement with him as the surgeon. He made me feel confident in his knowledge and skills. Meridian Park Hospital is an excellent Medical Facility and I was very pleased beyond my expectations with the care I received.”
“Dr. Soldevilla is very thorough and was very conservative in exploring options to surgery. Once we determined surgery was the best option, Dr. Soldevilla was able to schedule the surgery very quickly. The surgery to fuse two cervical vertebras went very well and I had less pain post-surgery than pre-surgery. Due to the care he exercised in surgery, I was able to return to work within two weeks. During the entire process, Dr. Soldevilla explained the treatment path, options, risks, and recovery process. He returned calls timely to answer additional questions. I would highly recommend him.”
“What can I say after being blown off by six other surgeons and in 24/7, level ten pain for 13 months, I was at the end of my rope. Last chance before giving up, I had a visit with Dr. Soldevilla and he was the only one with compassion for human suffering. He performed emergency surgery on a Saturday (his day off). It took two surgeries but he saved my life! I can't say enough good things about his caring, and ability to help when no one else would....”
“Absolutely the best in this state. Warm, clean, friendly, caring doctor, nurse, and front desk.”
“Best doctor I have seen in two years of constant doctors and tests. Courteous, compassionate and extremely knowledgeable and helpful!”

“Dr. Soldevilla is kind and caring. He makes you feel like he genuinely cares about your health. Would definitely recommend!"
