My experience with Dr. Aquino was amazing. I was scheduled for hernia surgery on a certain date. Angie found out that my insurance was going to change before my scheduled date and worked tirelessly to get me into surgery within 2-days to ensure my procedure was complete. She did all of the necessary communicating with my insurance. All I had to do was show up on time. I've never had an easier medical experience than with Dr. Aquino and his team. I also enjoyed feeling welcome in their offices. Everyone knew my name as soon as I walked in the door (which is amazing) and treated me as if I was a guest in their home rather than a patient. Dr. Aquino is extremely easy to speak with and took the time to answer all of my questions in detail. I never felt rushed, even when I walked back to his office unannounced to ask him a follow-up question after he had seen me. I would definitely recommend Dr. Aquino and his team to anyone who needs his services.

If I could leave minus stars I would. This office is DISGUSTING like something died in the walls staff said it was a mouse same thing they said last time I asked . There are dead Insects & dirt throughout the office. It hasn’t been cleaned in a very long time & considering he performs surgery in there ,I grew concerned for my mom,we will not be returning and I felt compelled to warn others. Dr. Aquino himself is not what the reviews lead us to believe. He is always more than an hour late with no reason or explanation frankly it’s rude and unprofessional. Especially since there are plenty of outstanding, attentive punctual surgeons who actually believe their time isn’t more valuable to that of his patients . As we sat an additional 45 min after seeing him walk in the door Already 45 min past our appt. for the second time he drank a cup of coffee went outside and started messing with gardening stuff while his poor office girl was left to make excuses for him. Not worth it BEWARE

For years I have been suffering with a condition which I mistakenly thought was nervousness, IBS, or something else, making me constantly have the urge to use the bathroom. This was causing me to go multiple times a day even though there wasn't anything to expel. This was impairing my ability to live comfortably and feel normal. Turns out I had massive hemorrhoids, which Dr. Aquino quickly diagnosed and treated. After having them removed I feel like I have my life back. I cannot stress enough how much a simple treatment changed my life. He and his office staff were courteous and professional about a super sensitive subject that I was very uncomfortable seeking treatment for. If you are someone suffering as I was, go check him out. I wish I had gotten treatment years earlier as all that suffering wasn't necessary. Thank you Dr. Aquino and staff!

I had a surgery procedure with Dr. Aquino. It went very well. He is very knowledgable, and very professional. I trusted him completely with my medical needs. His staff is very well trained and efficient. I appreciated his concern, the information he provided to me, and I will continue to trust him to be my doctor for my colo-rectal condition. he listened to me and my concerns. A+ to him.

I really like Dr. Aquino. He's very thorough and is concerned about his patients' health & well being. He goes over your records and takes time to call your referring doctor to discuss your test results. FF, I called 3xs re: blood work & spoke w/Jackie. Each time she promised to email the paperwork, but she didn't. She didn't like the fact that I reminded her and talked about a conversation she had w/a patient's wife and how she put her in her place. The only issue is with this office is Jackie. She's rude & controlling, so I chose to go elsewhere.

Dr. Aquino is extremely knowledgeable, professional and totally focused on the care and attention he gives his patients. His staff is also extremely attentive and goes to great lengths to make their patients feel relaxed and comfortable. My surgical procedure started and finished within the time frame promised. Dr. Mark, the anesthesiologist who works with Dr. Aquino was amazing! I experienced no after effects of the anesthesia. Dr. Aquino and his staff took very good care of me from my initial visit through my release. I am glad I chose Dr. Aquino for my treatment.

Dr, Aquino is a outstanding doctor who stopped internal bleeding I had from radiation treatments for aggressive cancer of my prostrate.. I was anemic from blood loss and Dr. Aquino located area of radiation damage and was able to treat and heal it and my health improved a bunch...

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'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.

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!
