San Antonio, TX |
Would NOT recommend this doctor! His receptionist/assistant Monica is VERY RUDE not only on the phone but in person too. She does not know how to be pleasant with patients and has NO knowledge in billing. Highly recommend finding another doctor if you can.

Monica is very rude, unprofessional and a liar. Does not know how to treat patients and code billing correctly.

Professionalism, expertise, experience and guidance describes Dr. Rincon and his staff. Dr. Rincon's skills and experience as a surgeon, along with Monica's dedication, determination and expertise to coordinate and schedule my surgical procedure, has me now recovering safely and comfortable at home.

Dr. Rincon did my mastectomy. I was so nervous as you can imagine after getting news of cancer. He was very respectful toward me and explained the whole procedure. All my questions were answered. He was direct and to the point which I appreciated. when I started my physical therapy, several therapists were all impressed with my scars and asked who did my surgery because typically they were not as meticulous as Dr. Rincon's. I have healed well and am grateful for his excellent care.

Office environment is pretty horrible , waiting room is small and cramped, very unwelcoming, dr rincon does not explain much and I felt very rushed to get in and out.. After my nerve conduction study a I was told I would receive results but never did , only thing I got was a bill. Would never go back or recommend to anyone.
