After taking my now one year old son several times, Dr. Jacinto only saw him his this visit because I kept asking the Nurse Practitioner questions she couldn't answer. Their computers were down, so they couldn't make comparisons to see if he progressed or write scripts for labs. Apparently, I asked too many questions because he stormed in and loudly started yelling if I wanted my son to have surgery with the he door wide open! He went on to make inappropriate comments about my own head size!

He and his staff are all amazing, intelligent, intuitive care providers. He isn't soft and fuzzy but he is the most intelligent, intuitive doctor we have ever seen on a regular basis. His diagnosis is 100% on time. His intelligence in his field far surpasses any lack of bedside manner. He saved my daughter's life. They don't get any better than him or his staff.

I will have to say that if you can stay away from this doctor and his staff PLEASE PLEASE save your self a headache and stay away. The Doctor as well as the staff are extremely rude, unprofessional and disrespectful with the patients. They don't seem to care that you are there with small children and make you wait over and hour or two to see the doctor. It is by far the worse experience. I am in the medical field and this place makes doctors and medicine look super terrible. My son is traumatize

Had to wait an hour and a half for the doctor to see our newborn, which is inexcusable. No one bothered to let us know they were running behind or apologized for the wait. Will not be returning.

DR JACINTO IS THE ONLY DOCTOR THAT HELPED MY DAUGHTER FIND AND TREAT HER PROBLEM AFTER A YEAR AND A HALF. VERRY STRAIGHT UP AND TO THE POINT HE CAME INTO THE OFFICE WHILE HE WAS ON VACATION JUST TO CHECK ON TWO PATIENTS ONE BEING MY DAUGHTER. HE WAS VERY DIRECT WHICH MAY BE INTIMIDATING TO SOME POEPLE BUT WHEN YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT YOUR CHILDS HEALTH DIRECT AND TO THE POINT MAKES A GIANT DIFFERENCE.

Disgusted with service and will never go back. Only seen doctor one time which was the first visit. After that we only saw NPR which slowly increased his meds or did nothing at all. The meds did not make any improvements with his schoolwork and he was under the line (neuro test graph) but still gave him diagnosis of ADHD & put him on meds right away. Was told by staff that he reviews the visit (file). Which I also turned in to my insurance company.

Horrible excuse for a physician! Called his office for clarification after being told the diagnosis he gave my son 4 years ago was no longer valid. He refused to answer my questions. Insisted via his staff I wait two months until our next paid visit to ask those questions. l am disguisted by his behavior. How can you diagnosis a child with a condition that alters his entire school life and then suddenly say you dont believe in your own diagnosis and offer no explaination for this sudden miracle
Didn't respond to repeated requests for medical records. Refused to provide accommodation recommendations for school. Took over 6 months after the sleep, genetic and blood test results were back to give her a diagnosis. Repeatedly stated how my daughter hasn't had and will never have a normal life without stimulants, even after I mentioned how my daughter has been in gifted and next grade level classes. I expressed concern about starting her on stimulants at a young age. No alternative offered.

From the moment I arrived at the office, the staff were friendly and professional. Dr. Jacinto was wonderful! My son had been sick for several months and Dr. Jacinto went into overdrive to help us figure out what was going on with him. He was very upfront with what he saw with my son and got clarification on his diagnosis. People always make sure to quickly jump to writing the bad stuff, and I need to make sure this gets out there that he was absolutely professional and wonderful with my son.
Spent less than five minutes diagnosing me because of an EEG abnormality that turned out to be nothing. He then put me on a drug that caused psychotic reactions, because there was only one other that caused a bad rash, when there are really over 30 to choose from. Staff wouldn't reply for days on end when my family called about their concerns regarding side effects. He's very dismissive & rude, & his office is a mill w/ terrible staff. He doesn't really care about fixing people and it shows.

Has been seen 4 times and nothing has been done, they keep you coming back so they can bill your insurance and when you go in the waiting room and parking lot is full plus a wait time of 1-2 hours. Terrible bedside manners, Dr Jacinto is rude. Unfortunately is one of the few places that take my son's insurance.
in Wesley Chapel, FL |
Saw my son for ADHD for over a year. On last visit, stopped medication and referred to psych for possible Autism. Earliest appt for psych is three months - Jacinto refused to renew prescription medicines. He is unethical and unprofessional. I will be filing a complaint with the AMA.
