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.
