    I had always been hearing that one's body started to "fall apart " after turning 40 . For me , it was true ! The only good part about this reality is that I found a great, caring and precise surgeon. Hernia & Hemorrhoid behind me ( so to speak ), I am in awe at how accurately and professionally I was treated . The evaluation , treatment and actual procedures were quite painless. Dr. Quinteros (by reputation and from my experience), asserts a high priority & passion for patients.

    I had an appointment to See Dr. Quinteros on Tuesday, February 7, 2017, at 4:30 PM. After being told that the drive I had was for work, but that they could look at my imaging, his assistant put a BitLocker Drive Encryption on my 32gb Scandisk Cruzer Glide, and their Medical Assistant, Maria Hernandez essentially called me a liar when I told her about it, and I was never called back about it. They will never be trusted by me again and I'm reporting this matter to the proper people.

    I am more likely to recommend Dr. Quinteros to my family and friends because he's an expert of what he does. I had my ileostomy reversed last Dec. 19th. Although, we waited for more than 4 hours, it was still worth it. It was expected because I know from the get go that his schedule was extra hectic. I thought his staff Maria was very kind to squeeze me in with his busy schedule. I recovered quickly because two weeks later I'm back at work. No more pain and my wound looking just fine.

    December of last year I was diagnosed with stage 3 rectal cancer and Dr. Quinteros was my surgeon to do low anterior resection. I was very afraid of having ileostomy but he rest assured me that it?s going to be okay. What I like about Dr. Quinteros is the way he made me feel comfortable about the situation. My husband noticed that his positive personality made us feel secured that he can make me better. He really took care of me. He answered every concerns we had before and after the procedure.
    thank you for the kind words and we will see you soon! FQ

    I was in a lot of pain and called Dr.'s office to see when Dr. can see me, he squeezed me in the next day. When I arrived for my visit his office is located in a brand new building so it was nice and clean. I was first seen by a resident then Dr. followed. He explained my condition and gave me many options to relieve my pain and to treat my pain so that it would not return in the future. I felt very comfortable with his treatment plan and scheduled surgery. I am doing great now! No more pain!
    Thanks so much for the kind words! FQ

    Once he has billed your insurance,you're on your own. Does not explain procedures very well to patients and does not care about follow-up.
    We strive to be better. Please let me know what the issue was so we can improve our service for other patients. I'd love if you could leave a message with the staff and I'll call you back. FQ
