      My and my husband's experiences with Dr. Aquino have been extremely positive. He doesn't put on airs, but is personal, relaxed but very knowledgeable, listens and then explains in laymen terms, never rushes us in or out. I highly dislike huge medical groups where you jump through a bunch of hoops to try to get appointments, information, contact a nurse or doctor; that is not a problem with Dr. Aquino!

      Dr. Aquino is great to deal with. He makes me feel very comfortable no matter what part of me he is dealing with. I know that I can always count on him. He will never give up on a problem. He stays up to date on all the new techniques. He is also a good guy to just talk to.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
