Prairie Lea, TX |
Awesome doctor and staff, very friendly! Made it their top priority to get you feeling 100%!

Dr. Aquino is a fantastic MD, and his staff is top-notch. From the nurses to office administration everyone is personable, friendly and they're doing business right. I was treated with the utmost privacy, dignity and respect by their entire staff from the first day through post-procedure. I am very pleased with how well the staff helped me with everything during recovery. ColoProctology Associates provide their patients with the highest level of healthcare services.

I'm a cash paying patient and i came in to get my hernia fixed. I went in for my consultation and was scheduled very soon after for my surgery. It was very reasonable the price and I feel so much better now. Thanks Dr Aquino for giving me my life back.

He takes his time with you and explains and will even draw you pictures until you understand what is going on. His staff goes out of their way to make things easy for you. Its a very relaxing atmosphere and its very clean.
in La Porte, TX |
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!
in Seabrook, TX |
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.

Dr. Aquino's Care Philosophy

As a board certified sub-specialty practice, we offer a superior level of care for problems of the colon, rectum and anus along with complex hernia repair. Over the last 25 years, we have achieved a reputation for high levels of patient satisfaction. Our service is tailored to the individual patient and is delivered with both competence and humor.

Dr. Aquino says...

In addition to performing complex abdominal and pelvic surgery in local hospitals, we have a high quality office operating room at our unique facility in Seabrook, where Ano-Rectal surgeries, groin hernia repairs and colonoscopies can be done efficiently and inexpensively.

This is a very popular option for our patients who find the hospital/facility costs for these procedures very high.  

In this age of high deductible policies, we are finding more and more of our patients choosing this option.

Patients who have no insurance are especially welcome as we can offer high quality care at reasonable "drive out" prices.

Specialist anesthesia and long acting blocks are provided at our office surgery.

Dr. Aquino says...

We are one of the very few offices that specialize in the treatment of fecal incontinence or accidental loss of bowels.

Please call for a consultation to further discuss treatment options of this very common and embarrassing problem.  There is really no need for anyone to spend the rest of their lives shut away from normal social activities because of this problem.

We also offer high grade colonic hydrotherapy for chronic constipation, usually associated with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).
