Dr. Pinto is great. Besides his obvious professional/technical expertise, he's friendly, professional and really listens to you. And, he spends the necessary time to understand your concerns and needs. I highly recommend him!

This guy is so far in the pocket of the drug companies he will not take prescription orders from mail-order pharmacies. he will smile in your face while watching you die too poor to buy medicine in the USA when all he would have to do is fax the prescription to an 800 number listed to company...more

He will look you in the eye and lie to you about his communications with your insurer. He will sabotage your paperwork and slow you down in processing your claim with your insurer. This happened to me today. Trust him to your peril.
