Dr.Pinell is absolutely amazing!! He answered every question that we had. Some times we would come with a page full of questions and he would take his time going through each one to ensure we understood fully.

Dr. Pinell has been my OB/GYN for over 12 years and he will be my life-long physician. I had an extremely difficult birth with my first born and couldn’t imagine having any other physician take such great care of us. Several years later when we suffered a m/c, he referred us to the most amazing fertility specialist. We were so blessed to only need a check up and hysteroscopy and I am happily 34 weeks pregnant today. My life and family is forever changed and blessed because of this excellent physician. You will never experience such a caring and attentive OB/GYN as this man.

My last visit to see Dr. Pinell for my annual well woman visit was as always, great. The office personnel are professional and efficient, and Dr. Pinell, is not only very knowledgeable, but also very kind and personable. Dr. Pinell has been my physician for almost 30 years and I cannot say enough good things about him. He is a very skilled physician who cares deeply about his patients.

Dr Pinell is, honestly, the best gyn I’ve ever been to. He takes the time to really listen to any concerns you may have and is genuinely invested in helping find answers and/or remedies. As long as I live within 100 miles of Houston, he’ll always be my doctor.

Dr. Pinell is unlike any other doctor I have or have ever had in that he makes himself available to his patients every week day. I can call his office after hours (after 6pm) and have him paged. He always calls back quickly, usually with 10 to 15 minutes, and spends time with me. I know once he took a break from one of his children’s functions to call. He is very dedicated to his profession and more importantly to his patients. My last appointment started with a phone call after hours. He listened to me and explained what should be done and why. I called his office the next day to set up appointments and his nurse was very helpful. She also returns calls quickly, usually the same day. His staff is awesome, always helpful and friendly. Two members of his staff helped me once as they were leaving for the day, by going back into the office to get my paper work. I trust Dr. Pinell’s professionalism and knowledge and recommend him without reservation.

He is an outstanding obstetrician, with sound knowledge of his field. He did a Csection that most obstetricians are afraid to do because of frozen pelvis. He did it without complications. He is also caring and patient. I recommend him strongly.
