Dr Pineda is an amazing surgeon and doctor. Corona virus kept me away from my mother while she was in the hospital. Dr Pineda was the only physician who took the time to call me every single day in order to update me and my family. My mother had an emergency surgery and the outcome could have not been better. We felt cared for under his guidance. I could have not asked for a better outcome.

He was very approachable and easy to talk to, he took the time to call my husband and talk to him about the treatment. Dr Pineda gave me all the options for the surgery, and gave me choices whether to live with the discomfort or have the surgery. I chose the surgery and he was attentive and very very good. The outcome was better than expected and I have already recommended him to one of my close friends. If you need a surgeon Dr Pineda comes highly recommended.

Dr Pineda was a God send for my wife and family. Last month she had a major stomach surgery that was life changing for us. She is doing so much better now. She was in an incredible amount of pain before the surgery and that pain has now been alleviated. My wife and family really liked Dr Pineda - he was very friendly and easy to communicate with. I am so thankful we found him! He even called home to make sure we were doing well after surgery. If I needed to have any surgeries, I would go to him.

Dr. Pineda came to us at a time of need . We are very new to Dallas with not one family member here . We started at a stand alone ED and transferred to Presbyterian Plano where I met Dr. Pineda . Right away I felt at ease his calm voice , attention to detail and reassuring medical advice gave me clear indication that I was at the right place with the right Dr. the course of our week long hospital stay Dr. Pineda was there every step of the way , he made sure his patient was doing well and needed nothing ! He made sure I was okay and comfortable and all my questions and concerns were always addressed. Dr. Pineda walked us to through every step of all his procedures which included various pre procedures and a discharge and readmission for surgery ! With all of this being said I keep going on and on about this Dr. but what I will say is this : as working medical professional myself I’m most impressed with the time he takes with his patients and their families! IMPRESSIVE & THANKFUL

Dr Pineda not only took the time to call my family and update them on the need for surgery but he also sat down and prayed for me! This was a first for me and I can’t thank him enough for his compassionate care. I was sent to several doctors for my belly pain but unfortunately ended up having an emergency surgery, I’m glad he was my surgeon. Dr Pineda, you are an angel and a gift.

Dr Pineda operated on my mother, he is an amazing surgeon and incredible human being. His compassion goes beyond any other other doctor I have ever seen. He prayed for my mom before going into the operating room. I am thankful Dr. Pineda and my mother crossed paths, he is a true jewel.

I usually do not bother with reviews but I had a great experience here. I was sick and in need of surgery, my anxiety through the roof. Dr Pineda was called in by the emergency doctor at the hospital who said he was the best surgeon there. I can't thank enough Dr Pineda for all the work he has done. The outcome was better than expected and he put my family at ease. I would recommend him to anyone in need of surgery, he was an angel sent from heaven.

Dr. Pineda saved my life! As a healthy person I never thought I would find myself admitted to the hospital in need of emergency surgery. I was at the hospital for several days after the surgery and he came in to see me every day to make sure I was well taken care of. He is sweet, caring, knowledgeable, and capable. I felt safe under his care. I highly recommend him.

I have been in pain for 10 years, multiple doctor visits and hundreds of dollars spent. Dr Pineda sat down and LISTENED to my story and concerns. Although nervous about the procedure he was kind and empathetic, I felt he really cared about my wellbeing. Surgery was successful and all my issues have gone away. He will be my family doctor from now on.

I liked that he wasn’t in a rush to get me out of the office like a lot of doctors I’ve seen. He, genuinely, was trying to figure out what was wrong, and listened to my concerns. His recommended treatment worked to relieve my symptoms & pain. It doesn’t hurt that he is easy on the eyes. I would recommend him to my family members

I have never met any doctor that was more competent in both medical skills and excellent bedside manner. He truly has a gift for putting your mind at ease about the procedure and answering your questions without feeling rushed. I was very fortunate to have Dr. Pineda as my doctor and surgeon in my recent colon surgery. I recommend him without any hesitation and feel anyone would be blessed to have Dr. Pineda for their surgeon.
