I really appreciate both Dr. Rinella and his staff for all their attention to my case. I have a lot of referrals for specialists and they are very good about pursuing the obstacles of the insurance issues for me. Dr. Rinella is exceptional in his attention to detail and is available for additional questions. I have recommended him to several other friends. Excellent expereince overall.
Avoid this doctor and staff at all cost!!! If you value your health and that of your family do not seek any medical assistance from this doctor, staff and firm! The staff will not return your phone calls no matter how urgent your medical condition is. They make excuses like "being on vacation" without assigning anyone to fill-in for them. Do life threatening conditions wait for someone to come back from vacation? No!!! I made several extremely professional and civil phone calls and left messages upon their voice-mail system since you can never get a live person to talk to you on the phone. They were of extremely urgent matters. Still, the staff and doctor would never return telephone calls. After many attempts, yes, I left a couple of messages with foul language on them because of their blatant ineptness, lack of intelligence, incompetence, lack of compassion, lack of ethics, failure to provide healthcare pursuant to their licensing(s), irresponsibility, lack of professionalism and neglect to administer necessary health care. The doctor (Dr. Rinella himself) had the nerve to write me a letter signed by him saying that I must seek a new primary care physician because they do not tolerate foul language (Already in the works, "Dr. Do-nothing!") . You know what, Dr. Rinella? Do you know what is truly foul, vulgar, derogatory, unprofessional and obscene? It's when a doctor and their staff do not allow their patients the proper medical care that they not only deserve but that pays their salaries! THAT is foul, vulgar, derogatory, unprofessional and obscene! Dr. Rinella, you do not deserve to hold a license to practice medicine in this state of even this country! I highly recommend that you seek a license to become a veterinarian in Mexico! As for your staff, I think that they would be better suited for assisting mankind and the general public by getting jobs at In-N-Out Burger! Again, avoid these morons at all cost because, in reality, your life, health and that of your family are at stake. And frankly, they don't give a da** about your health and/or well-being! I can say this from first-hand experience and have the phone records and the dash-cam video to prove my attempts to contact this office and get medical assistance only to be ignored and refused.
