Very disappointing! Superficial and rushed interaction! He comes in, checks you and talks to you 2-3 minutes , and just leaves! did not have time to raise other concerns I had. highly unprofessional! and his clinic in Stamford is badly run down. Bad experience! would not go back to him.

I've been to Dr Pinto for many years. He is very responsive and quick to find what needs treatment. I recently had dry and swollen lower lip. He immediately asked if I had eaten exotic fruits of any kind. At the time I could not recall such, but by the time I got home I realized that I had picked up over a month ago Jackfruit from the Phillippines. I hope he reads this. I'd recommend Dr.Pinto to anyone who is concerned about dermis conditions. Br. Lawrence Lussier, CSC

My dermatologist retired and CT Dermatology Group bought the practice. I saw one other doctor in the group twice in 2015 and wasn't too happy with the services, but I would rate the first doctor a "3 1/2". I saw Dr. Pinto once in the fall of 2016 and again in 2018. I wasn't too happy on the first visit and thought I would give the group and Dr. Pinto a second try and once again I was not happy. Dr. Pinto is abrupt and seems very uncaring. He acts like the patient is putting him out.

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.

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.
