Fantastic doctor with a great attention to detail. Dr. Pinzone takes the time to get to know each one of his patients, how they are feeling and how he can improve the treatment plan. I felt very safe with him and knew that he was actually helping me with my care.

The first visit I had with him, he spent some time with me trying to listen because I wasn't feeling the same even though my thyroid hormones are within the normal range. He tried to put me on a different medication one time and then after that he just said to return it to the one I was taking before because there really isn't anything else that can be done. I will always feel this way which was a terrible thing to say. The staff was very terrible!(in Gonzales Rd) Unprofessional!
