Worse doctor ever! Went for possible Cushing's Disease (rare and deadly metabolic? disease). At first visit, he reviewed my CT's and MRI's and insisted I didn't have Cushing's even without ordering any labs. After seeing him 8-9 mo's and getting sicker, I asked if there was any medication to ease the discomfort. He handed me a card to see a Psychiatrist. Instead, I called NIH in Maryland?, they reviewed my CT's, MRI'S & records, told me to fly up asap and determined I had full blown Cushing's.

I have been a patient of Dr. Sainz for over 15 years. He has ALWAYS listened to me and taken extra time with me when I needed it. He thinks outside of the box.. and provides information on new healing modalities and techniques. He's very thoughtful and understanding. I hold him in high regard!

Dr. Sainz de la Pena has been my treating endocrinologist for 26 years. He has been extremely proactive in my care and has literally saved my life. He has been way ahead of the curve in terms of medical research and current standard(s)of care. He is very strict and tough in terms of patient responsibility. Sometimes this is not very pleasant but certainly necessary in long term health results. I have a huge respect for Dr. Sainz de la Pena and could not imagine going to another endo.
