How likely are you to recommend Dr. Pinzon?

(Select your rating)
Dr Pinzon and staff are very professional, knowledgeable and caring. Dr. Pinzon discussed procedures in detail to help me understand and gave me different options to relieve my pain. I have seen him twice over several years. His procedures are very effective and for me they were long lasting. I would highly recommend him for anyone who needs an alternative or adjunct to pain medication for their back pain.
