Thoughtful doc who listened to my concerns, answered my questions, and really helped me understand the long-term issues that various treatment options presented.

awful experience - went for a second opinion: at first the PA and Dr. Rios made me feel they were going to do a much more effective job. only to find out there procedure is extremely invasive. rude office staff as well. untrustworthy is an understatement

I would very much recommend Dr Rios. He has done 2 surgeries on me and has done a great job. Plus he is very easy to talk to. And he cares about his patients.
