Always in a hurry never had time to answer questions. Had laminectomy and decompression surgery. Developed a blood clot in the cord and instead of surgery to remove it as protocol states I was left in a hospital bed for a week on steroids and only his PA-C rounded on me I saw dr pinto again at my follow up. Now I have permanent nerve damage from the clot.

Very informative, explained every step to be taken. Easy to converse with. I would definitely see him again if another surgery is warranted.

Extremely distraught. I had an MRI in July 2016 and Dr Pinto reviewed the MRI suggesting that I could perhaps get relief from steriod injection and physical therapy follow up. I had the injection one week ago today 9/29/16. The pain during the procedure was bad enough but no relief to be had afterwards. Pain in my neck has intensified and migrated to my arm. I've made several attempts to find Dr. Pinto with minimal results. My phone calls yesterday and today have not been answered.

Horrible experience. Had 6 appointments first 3 with the assistant that stated I needed surgery and set me up to see dr pinto. He ordered more tests to say my back was to messed up and he did not recommend surgery. Feel very let down drove 3 hours each way per visit plus additional drives for tests. The Discogram made me much worse now can barely walk or move. His recommendation was a pain pump. Extremely unprofessional meeting at a physical therpy office. Alwaya late.
