Dr. Rios performed suturring on my breast after his partner removed my skin cancer. His bedside manner was overly casual and a bit arrogant. He apparently spent 11 years or so specializing in breast augmentation etc. He stiched me up in 1 minute flat. Enough to make me nervous. My removal was scheduled 9 days out with a PA. They appear to be very fresh but she removed them anyway and told me to be careful because the wound my open. Sure enough it opened over an inch long qnd a 1/2 inch wide. I went back qnd was only allowed to see the same PA qnd no doctor or surgeon. I was told I would just have a bad scar. Meanwhile my flesh is hanging out and they left no solution but a future of reconstructive surgey out of pocket! His practice was a cattle call of sorts with obvious focus on money and not the patient. I feel mutilated.

Dr. Rios' treatment left a large unsightly scar on my forearm that is not correctable. I am very sad/hurt having to live with this ugly scar and and when I revisited him his only acknowledgement was to refer me to other doctors. I have no choice except to cover it with a tattoo.

I recently had a breast enhancement from Dr. Rios, I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a surgeon. Very nice and professional, he makes you feel comfortable. If you have questions or concerns he does not mind helping. The procedure itself only hurt the first two days and then virtually no pain, so no pain pills he actually doesn't even prescribe you them. If I could give 10 stars I would. His staff is also very nice, Beanie is awesome and helpful.

First, I had to wait 45 minutes in the waiting room. Then, Dr. Rios walked in and greeted me very unprofessionally with "let's talk about boobs". He was dressed very casually, jeans and a polo, and yawned/rubbed his eyes several times during my consultation. When asked what my goals of surgery were, I explained that I wanted to make my breast enhancement look as natural as possible. He laughed at me and said that wouldn't happen. Very rude and arrogant. Main concern is money, not patient.

A very easy person to work with. I had to have a cancerous area removed from my face and am very satisfied with what resulted from the surgery.

From the instant I met Dr. Rios, I knew he was the surgeon I wanted to work with. His operation technique is amazing! He told me I would not be in any pain but I didn't believe it until I experienced it for myself. I had Absolutely NO PAIN & didn't need anything more than Ibuprofen, No drains, No narcotics, No compression bras. It's been about 2 months now & I couldn't be happier with my results! IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR AN EXCEPTIONAL SURGEON, DR. RIOS IS THE ANSWER. He & his staff are AMAZING!
