Patient Reviews (1)
in Chicago, IL |
Dr Quinones takes the time to explain procedures, treatments that the patient may have to have. He is professional, but not stuffy. My glaucoma is stable, and I am very comfortable asking questions about my care and getting answers that I understand. Dr Quinones is sincere and has a genuine concern for his patients, ( my observation), and I feel he is very good at what he does and I appreciate that. I would recommend Dr Quinones to friends and family.
