Unprofessional and Dismissive

Did not look me in the eye. Did not perform a hands on physical exam. Was very dismissive of my symptoms. I did not need surgery and was treated as I was clearly a waste of his time. I shouldn't have to require a big money generating surgery to be treated with respect and dignity. Left the office very disappointed and shocked at Dr. Pineda's lack of professionalism. Would not recommend him to anyone.

He did a spinal fusion on me in 2001. He had to first fix a previous surgery I had so that took an additional 4 hours under the knife. He saved me from basically going on disability. I'm still getting along great so many Thanks and very strong recommendation from me!!

Feel quite fortunate to have him for my spine doctor.

Excellent doctor, very smart, well educated, many yrs of experience, takes his time with consultations & explains everything, answers questions, doesn't rush. He's top of the line in my opinion.
