I had hernia surgery performed by Dr. Pinnar in Fall 2015. He really put me at ease explaining the procedure in detail and what to expect. The robotic surgery worked out fine and I would not at all hesitate to recommend Dr. Pinnar.

Excellent surgeon! During my recent gallbladder surgery Dr. Pinnar ran into some issues, instead of stopping the robotic surgery and going to a more traditional laparoscopic or worse, open surgery he continued on to successfully remove my gallbladder. This decision directly affected my recovery time and a week later I am feeling GREAT! Thank you for your patience and perseverance!

I did not know what to expect, it was my first surgery and I only had a few hours to take it all in then I met my Surgeon Dr Pinnar he explained every thing to me in detail he had a great bedside manner that when he left I just turned on the TV and really forgot about everything. The day of surgery I felt I had nothing to worry about and I didn"t, Dr Pinnar was unbelievable. At the follow up he showed me all the pics we had a few laughs, I would recommend Dr Pinnar without hesitation

I was referred to Dr. Pinnar for a surgical repair for a hernia. I found him professional, caring, and easy to talk to. He took all the time needed to explain the surgery to me and how I would feel afterwards. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Dr. Pinnar to anyone.

I required abdominal hernia surgery. Dr. Pinnar was extremely comprehensive in explaining the procedure in advance, and did an outstanding job during the surgery, which turned out to be more complex than originally indicated. He thoroughly explained what was done and the protocols I needed to follow to ensure a rapid recovery. I highly recommend him and his staff as competent, courteous, and professional, before during and after the procedure..

Great Doctor. Spends a lot of time discussing and explaining diagnosis and options. Surgery went very well. He will be my go to surgeon.
