Dr Pinto is rated a 10 in my book. He listens intently. He asks the right questions. He is very thorough. He's is very caring. When I see Dr Pinto he asks about my husband too. His bedside manor is the best. Dr Pinto took excellent care of my husband just after the first of the year. Now he is helping me. He's such a professional yet so personable. Wish he could be my family doctor. Neither of us are ever rushed.

Dr. Pinto has been my GI for 9 years, he is a very kind and understanding doctor. He listens to me and if I make suggestions he tells me if they will work or not and what we should try instead. He is very thorough in his treatment and I do not trust any other GI. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for an amazing GI.

Dr. Pinto is not only an excellent physician but a wonderful man. He fought and advocated for me with the insurance company to get the medication I seriously needed. Thanks to him I'm totally cured, today. HOWEVER, what I am (even!) most grateful for is that Dr. Pinto saved my wife's live. She suffered extreme, severe abdominal for years. Doctors could not find its cause. Dr. Pinto did not stop until he found out that she had cancer. She had surgery: JUST ON TIME for a possible full recovery!

Dr. Amar Pinto is an amazing GI specialist. I have sent about ten pts his way and all have been so grateful and thrilled for his expertise and just how well he treats and takes care of his patients. What a blessing from God. You will not find a better Dr!!!!!
