With four cancer diagnoses in my immediate family we have encountered countless oncology and medical professionals. Dr. Pinto was our first oncologist and has remained my entire family's favorite medical professional. He is honest and forthcoming, yet sensitive and genuine. We never felt rushed and were always heard. Our son's treatment went exactly how he patiently explained it would. We are eternally grateful for Dr. Pinto.
We are having a great experience treating in Seattle with Dr. Pinto. He is a wonderful doctor, very atencious, and the most important he is fantastic human being.
