Dr. Pinto's expertise and experience are, I believe, unsurpassed. My shoulder surgery last October 2019 was successful; I have full use of the shoulder, and will be playing golf and boating shortly. Dr. Pinto's team offered excellent support as well.

Dr. Pinto has performed extremely successful total replacements of both of my shoulders. He is everything you need in an orthopedic surgeon--highly skilled, many years of experience, and a professional office and bedside manner. I believe his orthopedic care is second to none. Scott (his PA) also has my complete trust--he too has top notch skills, professionalism, and is easy to talk to. Lastly, but certainly not least, is the rest of his office staff--they are fabulous!

Dr. Pinto recognized right away that I had an irreparable rotator cuff that had been misdiagnosed by a previous physician. His confidence in the latest procedures and the need to act quickly to improve my quality of life and reduce pain was refreshing. He performed Superior Capsular Reconstruction on my shoulder in Aug 2018. As of Jan 2019 I am in a much better place. I can sleep at night with no pain and my range of motion and strength is almost back to normal. Thumbs up to Dr. Pinto

Dr. Pinto is an outstanding Orthopaedic Surgeon. He performs excellent diagnostics and takes his time thoroughly explaining your issue and your options. My rotator cuff surgery went very well, and my follow-up visits helped me understand what was going on in the healing process and what to expect in the coming weeks. He has excellent attention to detail and a wonderful disposition with his patients. He is a Blessing to his profession!

My sons shoulder was a mess! The staff and doctors here were excellent. With surgery, follow up visits, and PT he is only five months out of surgery day and already has 100% movement and range. Still working on the strength, that will come with more time. His injury’s were extensive and they were very honest on letting us know, he may not get full use. Great work Dr. Pinto!

I waited an hour past my appointment time and found him to be rude and condescending. Dr. Pinto was quick to make a diagnosis without examining me or asking any questions. He claimed that my MRI was of such poor quality that he couldn't read it and he didn't believe I had a tear in my rotator cuff, so it must be frozen shoulder. Sent me back to therapy AGAIN despite the fact that I had already done that. I got a 2nd opinion who found 3 tears and a bone spur using that same MRI. Go elsewhere.

Great bedside manner. Dr. Pinto listens, evaluates and assesses the condition. He explains the issues in common language, discusses possible treatment plans and let's you know what he can do for you. No nonsense, very thorough and an excellent surgeon. His team has always been upbeat and positive. We tried non-operative treatments first. I really didn't want to end up in surgery but I am very happy with St. Joe's-Chelsea, my shoulder repair and thankful to have Dr Pinto as my surgeon.

Very skilled, very professional. Has a conservative reputation - doesn't hurry into surgery before non-surgical options are tried. I found this to be true in my case as well. No nonsense in the office - they listen fully to your concerns and let you ask as many questions as you need to, and then they give you very matter-of-fact assessment and options. Absolutely professional and competent. Hope I don't need an orthopedic surgeon again, but if I do I would definitely return here.

Dr. Pinto and his staff made me feel as comfortable as possible before and after rotater cuff surgery. Everything that needed to be done is in one location ( lab MRI exrays). There was no long waits for aftercare visits. Also Dr Mark and Dr.Scott was very thorough in explaining every aspect of surgery and the healing process.

I would highly recommend Dr. Mark Pinto, his physician asst. and office staff to my friends and others. They were all very competent and professional. Dr. Pinto did an excellent job of explaining what to expect before and after my rotator cuff surgery.

My rotator cuff had a traumatic tear from falling on 11/16. Dr. Pinto performed surgery 1/17 and he was very honest about expectations and what exercises I should follow with Physical Therapist post opp. Each time I called, I was able to speak or see as needed, I did f/u appts. every six weeks and am proud to say that I have completed my visits to their office on 6/17. They were honest and have wonderful attitudes. I never felt rushed. I highly recommend Dr. Pinto.

Dr. Mark Pinto is a warm and caring physician who operated on and fixed my husband's torn rotator cuff. He was very clear on what my husband could expect. He was concerned about Chuck's level of pain and length of recovery. He was highly recommended by several friends. We share that sentiment.

I was especially satisfied with the anesthesia, the entire process was virtually painfree. All the staff treated me more like a family member rather than a patient. I am glad that I chose Dr Pinto and his team and have recommended them to others.

I met Dr. Pinto because he is a friend of my daughter. When I developed a sore shoulder playing golf I went to him for an examination. He determined that I had a rotator cuff tear in my L shoulder. He explained the options I had and that the only way to repair it was with surgery. I'm 74 years old and was concerned about the success of my surgery. I just visited with Dr. Pinto 4 months after my surgery and he told me to start back doing the things I wanted to do gradually. Very pleased.

Dr. Pinto came highly recommended and it quickly become apparent why, he and is staff are very caring and my shoulder surgery was very successful. He explained what to expect and realistic goals he hoped to achieve. I followed his advise as to what I could do to obtain my desired results and I wasn't disappointed. I am well on my way to resuming my favorite sport volleyball. Thank you Dr. Pinto and your staff

I had bad shoulder pain for the last 3 or 4 years. I ended up needing a total shoulder replacement. In the hospital the next morning, I woke up at 7:20 AM. Who was standing next to my bed? Dr. Pinto, just checking on me. Dr. Pinto and everyone I met at the office are a class act. I'd let him cut on me again any time.
