The staff are incredible, attentive, fast and efficient! Dr. Pinell has a humor that can lighten your day anytime. He is the sweetest OBGYN and I wouldn’t trade him for anyone to deliver my newborns.

Not only is Pinell an excellent OB with an infectious disease specialty as well that his patients benefit from, he cares deeply about his patients. He is patient, compassionate and thorough. He also makes himself available at anytime for even the seemingly mildest concern. The nurses and office staff are highly responsive and very competent. Can’t recommend highly enough.

Dr. Pinell is a knowledgeable and caring physician. I have been under his care for the past 27 years. His bed side manner is impeccable. His knowledge of his field is shown and always appreciated. He takes the time to explain what is expected during each procedure during each exam. The staff is great also.
