“Dr. Llanos has been working with me for several years on my chronic back pain. He is a very caring Doctor who takes time to listen to me, and he goes into detail about our treatment plans. While performing procedures on my back he always talks about precisely what he is doing which I find most helpful and comforting. Recently, I have had some rather severe medical problems unrelated to the back issue, and Dr. Llanos personally contacted me at my home, after office hours, and discussed my health issues at length. You do not find many Doctors taking their valuable personal time to keep up with a patients entire medical issues as he did. That meant a great deal to me and only reinforced my admiration for him as a very caring and professional Doctor. None better.”
