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.
in chelsea, mi |
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.
in Jackson, MI |
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.
Jackson, MI |
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.
in Brooklyn, MI |
Dr Pinto, staff and Chelsea hospital exceeded all my expectations. My shoulder injury was fairly extensive and 5 months post surgery i couldn't be happier.
in Fenton, MI |
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.
in Dexter, Mi. |
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
in Chelsea, MI |
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.
in Jackson, MI. |
My son had shoulder surgery and we were very pleased with whole process, from the pre-surgery all the way through to the post surgery follow-ups.....everything was timely and done in a very professional manner. Couldn't be happier with our choice of Dr. Pinto and his staff.....thanks!
in Clarklake, MI |
Dr. Pinto was friendly and professional at all times. He set realistic and accurate expectations. Surgery went smoothly and was very effective. Post-op care was efficient and helpful. I would highly recommend Dr. Pinto for your orthopedic care.
in Chelsea, MI |
Very comfortable meeting with Dr. Pinto.
in Jackson, MI |
I couldn't be more happy with my experience with Dr. Pinto from my first visit to my last follow-up. He was very professional and explain everything completely. What to expect from the surgery. My surgery went so much smoother than my last surgery perform my a Jackson Doctor. I was amazed at how far less pain I experience with the shoulder surgery. I would highly recommend him to my family and friends.
in Chelsea, MI |
Great Dr and staff.
Ann Arbor, MI |
Dr. Pinto was thorough and explained everything perfectly about my upcoming surgery. He spent as much time with me as I required, answering all of my questions. I never felt like he was rushed. Rather, he went out of his way to make me feel comfortable. Prior to surgery he spoke with me and put me at ease.
