I had been to many dermatologists to try to figure out what i had and he nailed it right away. He is so smart. My mother also had MOHS with him and it was a great experience from the get go. He explained the procedure to us. During the procedure he explained what to expect. HES AMAZING!!!!

I would never recommend Dr Pinto to anyone. Was seen by him in early July for MOHs surgery did not like him during procedure didn't explain anything felt as though he was not interested in being there. Left aftercare instructions to nurse 15 stitches later sent me home with a bandaid . That night wound opened up and had to be seen by another Dr who sewed me back up was amazed that DR Pinto would send me home in the manner Dr Pinto did. No antibiotics nothing. Do not go to him for anything.

As another reviewer here said, Dr. Pinto lacks a thoughtful bedside manner. He acts like you are bothering him and wasting his time when trying to discuss your reason for visiting the office. Personally, I think his demeanor is rude and condescending and left me feeling defeated. Sure, he treated me, but the next time I need a dermatologist, I shall employ someone else.

Terrible. he doesn't know his way around lasers and to make matters worse, he lacks a thoughtful bedside manner.

Went to get an abcess drained. He was kind and gentle. I was terrified of the procedure and Dr Pinto got it done quickly but was sure to throurouly numb the area as best he could. I am due back to see him for follow up next week.
