– Farrell J.
“I broke my wrist in early March, 2016. After going to the emergency room at Harris Methodist HEB to put my arm in a splint, I was referred to Dr. Briseno. I was able to get into see Dr. Briseno almost immediately, and, at that initial visit, Dr. Briseno recommended surgery (apparently it was a pretty bad break), which he subsequently performed the NEXT DAY! The surgery went very smoothly, and between Dr. Briseno and his staff, coupled with the amazing work of my occupational therapist, Ms. Kandy Khobar (who is also with North Texas Orthopedics), I was able to regain full use of my hand and wrist much more quickly than anticipated, and I was able to return to work without restriction. Even my company nurse was impressed with how quickly I was able to return to work considering the extent of the injury. I heartily recommend North Texas Orthopedics to anyone and everyone.”
– John M.
“Dr. Briseño and his staff have always been professional and super caring. It's hard to find a team that I feel truly cares, but I have found it with this team.

This has been a long process, but I am greatful it has been with Dr. Bresiño and his team.”

“I returned and received a second steroid injection in each knee. I was told if this did not solve the problem I would need to return for an MRI. I have toughed it out and whatever was causing the clicking and pain has been beat into submission. Minor pain lingers but am going to the gym and will start cycling and kayaking when the weather cools down.”
– Roy G.
“I felt very comfortable with the doctor. He allowed me to be at ease and did not overwhelm me with technical words; yet, he explained what he would do in surgery. I have questions for the PA when I see her on Sept 23rd. Questions which I didn't think of until after the original appointment on Aug 1st. Everyone is nice and helpful, but also, professional.”

Between he and his PA, Rachel Acosta, they have taken exceptional care of me and immediately after the surgery I felt better than I've felt in 15 years. I am very grateful to Dr. Briseno and his Staff for the care I have received.”

“I had my first appointment at North Texas Orthopedic. Description as one enters front doors: automatic doors allow for wheelchair patients to enter easily. The reception room is large, well appointed with comfortable chairs and even study desks are there – plus coffee, the cure for your mind. I have cervical stenosis and needed a surgeon’s evaluation of my condition to know what my choices are. I got that with Dr. Briseno who had studied my X-rays and MRI. He explained surgery is contraindicated for my problem. Now, however, there is a plan. I can have steroid shots in my spinal canal to alleviate the major pain in my shoulders and wrists. I look forward to that and have an appointment soon with Dr. Tucker, Pain Management Specialist Extraordinaire (according to his patients). He doesn’t know it, but he is my guy to keep me functioning, using my arms and wrists to write another book and pick up my coffee cup without pain.”

“Dr Briseno is truly a hard working man who didn't press me to do anything I didn't feel good about he offered his help and left it in my hands and when I said go he went above and beyond putting aside his own life to help improve mine on a dime very few people in life have that quality or even care and he didn't even know me! He went above and beyond and the staff treated my family and me first class truly a one of a kind staff and Dr who is a good person and a good doctor a real win and a great example of people helping people!”

“Dr. Briseno was my 2nd opinion doc for major back surgery. He knew and was friends with my 1st opinion doc, but his philosophies and procedures were different in five important areas. Most of all, he was sweet, gracious, non-rushing, willing and able to answer all my questions to my satisfaction, and had concern and compassion. All this plus the many sterling reviews made me know he was the one.”
– Debbie S.
“When Dr. Briseno came in he sat down and listen to everything that I had been through the last three weeks trying to find a diagnosis. He was very compassionate and caring and truly wanted to help me get better and he assured me that he would make that happen. He was confident in his diagnosis and treatment plan and he understood my urgency to get my problem fixed due to the pain that I am in and acted swiftly to push everything through to insurance as soon as possible. I’m looking forward to working with Dr. Briseno during my surgery and on the road to recovery.”
