      Dr. Pineless has been taking care of me for over 10 years, and this is one of the few offices in town where I know I can count on the staff to follow through, whether it's with questions to be answered, prescription refills or returning my calls. The doctor and the PA are helpful and knowledgeable, and it gives me peace of mind knowing that I can count on them.

      Abandon me, an ill patient, with MG, after my refusal of a procedure he recommended. Also refused to cover me after being on a three plus week medical leave, after saying, and I quote I'm in no hurry to return you to work, in your condition REALLY??? His office manager Edie , is pure evil, and the staff totally incompetent, regarding most any patient matters. I'm an older retiree, unfortunately, with much experience with doctors, in my life. This is by far the worst medical experience.
      in Oviedo, FL |
      The doctor did not listen to my concerns at ALL. He did not address the reason I was in the office. He told me that I was wrong numerous times. After this, it was 3 calls to his office and a month later my prescription still has not been refilled correctly. The office staff is horrible and condescending. I would not recommend this practice to ANYONE. This lights in the office are not conducive to those with migraines, nor are the air freshers.

      never got to see the doctor only a nurse not very professional very old fashioned practice waisting your time and money to go there a very disappointing experience they wanted to send me to a specific xray place where they get kick back ? i refused and chose my own
      in Winter Park, FL |
      I have met with Dr. Pineless 2 times. He was analytical about my symptoms taking time to evaluate them. And he put a plan together so we could eliminate causes. Dr. Pineless is focused & serious. I appreciate this in a doctor! He also took time to explain test results, get my input, & give me his professional opinion.
      in Orlando, FL |
      Went to this doctor with headaches and muscle pain. He blamed my symptoms on my weight and stated I was the poster child for sleep apnea even though I did not have any symptoms. He also made some comments that I should have stayed on a certain med because it would help me lose weight, and what woman doesn't want that? When I showed him an order for blood work that another neurologist recommended, he told me he wouldn't bother doing the blood tests. He was wrong. I have lupus.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
