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. Patino past visits have lacked quality clinical standards. His bedside manner is detrimental and does not do a good job coaching/explaining parents' child's illness/symptom. When asked questions, he gets very defensive and displays lack of compassion. Furthermore, he also does not advocate for his patients and has mediocre employees/staff members in the front office providing incorrect information. I suggest the staff/practice should go through training on quality clinical standards to ensure they are imparting accurate information to patients and follow through in calling patients back when needed. Lastly, obtaining health records from Dr. Patino is a confusing labyrinth & ultimately alarming. When asked for a copy of my daughter's record he advised I should seek a lawyer because he would never give them to me. This is alarming and a direct violation of HIPAA since any release of information consent from the patient or legal guardian is needed. Not sure why he couldn't provide.

Medical Assistants are pointless and do not help patients, Waiting time is ridiculous with and without and appt, The appt is with different providers every time and they do not even ask the parent if they agree, Dr Patino rushed in the appt and do not let parent ask questions throughout the appt, and whenever you are able to ask which usually is at the end explanation is rushed. Customer service is horrible they do not return calls.

We love Dr. Patino. He's been taking care of my family for 15 years. Our little son Bryan, was born very much sick and Dr. Patino right away knew that Bryan needed surgery right away, due to pyloric stenosis , and he also was born with many other problems including mitochondrial disease, laryngomalacia, etcétera. We owe Bryan's life to Dr. Patino. Not only as a Doctor but as a human being, Dr. Patino is very much unconditionally dedicated to his career and the future of our children.

My husband and I are not following the recommended immunization schedule. He said he was ok with that. When discussing hep B shot, he told me she could get help B if someone who was infected was talking to her and spitting while talking! Not true! The other dr in the office is very sweet. However, I had a painful experience breastfeeding in the beginning, so he urged me to use formula. Instead, he could have recommended a lactation specialist. I successfully breastfed for 20 months.

Dr Patino is very good and knowledgeable, but the wait is the deal breaker. It's a 2 hour process at least. If you can deal with the wait, he is extremely competent and great with kids. He always seemed very compassionate.
