Treated me like dirt. Berated me at every turn. Expected me to kiss his feet because he fulfilled his obligation as an on-call surgeon.

Have seen Dr.Trinidad twice and he is a very caring physician. He explains all options thoroughly and I have the utmost trust in him. He is young and trained in all new vascular procedures. I highly recommend him.

He lied to us about the risk involved in my wife's surgery, which left her paralyzed from the waist down. Plus, he was not honest about the steps they could take if something went wrong. He said there were things they could do. In reality, there was only one option and when that didn't work, they were out of options. After the surgery, he did not see my wife for 3 weeks and when he finally did, what he told her about the risk involved was different than what he said before the operation.

My spouse went to have a fistula inserted. Four surgeries later he has terrible pain and his dialysis can still not use the site.
