Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. Peinado had been my husband and my doctor since 2013. Doctors like him are hard to find. When he is talking to you, you have his full attention and he makes you feel like you are the only one that matters. He has been so patient and caring. I would change insurance if he were to quit taking my insurance. Finding him was a true gem.

I have been going to Dr. Peinado for about 20 years. He takes the time he needs to answer questions and hear any concerns you have. You do not feel like you are being rushed through a cattle line. If he feels that you should see a specialist, the referral goes out quickly. The only way I will leave his practice is if my insurance changes where I have no choice.
