DR. Pinero has provided diabetic support to me for over 5 years. I find him to be competent, professional, and dedicated. Having been a insulin dependent diabetic for over 50 years with multiple location physicians providing service I rate DR Pinero as tops in his practices, suggestions, and recommended directions for control, drug interactions, and well being.

being a old guy, 73, and not being in the best of health, I've seen lots of doctors. I cant find a single thing about dr. Pinero that I would say is less that 5 stars. he listens. he explains. he remembers everything we talked about in previous visits. remembering is one of the most important things a good dr. has. everything read or learned in school, keep forever. great dr. knows his stuff. I recommend highly to everyone.

I have auto immune deficiency,Thyroid,and Graves disease. I have been to many Doctors who specialize in the condition and no one has been able to stabilize my condition that swings back and forth. Dr. Pinero came highly recommended to me 4 yrs ago and he has me stabilized with this triple condition I have suffered with. He is very caring and accurate in everything he has done for me. I highly recommend him if you have any issues related to Diabetes, Thyroid. I would not use anyone else at all.

We were referred by our Primary Care to Dr Antonio Pinero-Pilona. Let me start by saying the office staff is dismissive and borderline rude both over the phone and in person. Dr Pinero's incompetence led to complications at the hospital due to his lack of attention to detail in his biopsy and ultrasound results where he did not provide a full report and even missed an entire cancerous area on my wife neck/thyroid which complicated the surgical plan. Terrible doctor in every way possible.

I don't have a problem with Dr Pinero. I like him. What I do have is a problem with his office staff. My appointments have been cancelled 4 times. The reason being didn't get a referral from my Primary. I was told back in June the referral was sent. During my many calls trying to get this resolved Allison in the referral dept said don't worry this is what I do. I will take care of it. Well not taken care of. No follow up nothing. They call 2 days before the appt no Referral. I had to get referr.

I have struggled with high blood sugars for a while and after a few visits with Dr. Pinero he had my A1C level down to 7% which I have not been for years. He understands the struggles diabetics go thru and is very caring. I am very happy with him.
