    How was your appointment with Dr. Pinzon?

    Oct 26, 2022
    I've started visiting DR. Pinzon in March 2022 for lower back pain -- I have received 5-6 injections in that time and I have seen definite improvement. Their office is clean, and close to my home. Their staff has worked with me to get convenient appointments to minimize the amount of time that I need to miss work. I am glad that they provide written material to review regarding procedures so that I know what to expect. I am also glad that the medical procedures that he has performed are in the office which is more convenient. I understand my treatment plan and I feel comfortable that Dr. Pinzon is competent and working in my best interst.
