Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

A very serious minded health oriented physician. He does not look at computer but is attentive to your needs as a patient. He considers how your physical difficulty is affecting the emotions as well. Excellent doctor.

I have been with Dr. Tinio for 2+years. Every time I have to book a visit with him he always handles the issue with professionalism and kindness. His knowledge and insight is above par and he is an excellent listener. I would recommend him to anyone and have done so many times to my friends and family. I am a north County San Diego surfer, I have had injuries aches and pains for the sport along with just getting older Dr. Tinio is always there to resolve whatever issue arises. I know he is 100% supportive of a good diet and exercise.

I have presented to Dr. Tinio on two separate occasions, and found him not only professional, knowledgeable and thorough, but he is also very attentive, detailed and genuinely concerned with the overall picture of his patient's health. I highly recommend him.
