Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

The most wonderful, thorough physician you could ever hope for. The staff are a family and they treat you like family too. No question is laughed at, but well explained and time is taken with each patient to make sure you understand everything that is going on. Often explained in a simple analogy that anyone can understand. Dr Pineda and his staff are SAINTS everyone should be so lucky to have a Doctor like this.

Dr. Pineda diagnosed my low ferritin level in 2013. I had been plagued with anemia since I was very young. At times could hardly walk around. He ordered an iron infusion and I have been getting them since when my level drops low. Most doctors won't order a ferritin level or recognize how important it is. I am now 76 years old, I simply do not absorb enough iron.
