Patient comment: “As a healthcare professional,  I chose Dr. Quinones to treat a chronic condition that required surgical intervention. For several years,  I’ve witnessed the consistent high standard of quality care Dr. Quinones provided for his patients receiving surgery. Within the operating room,  every patient was treated with impeccable care. He was always conscious of safety measures for the patient and staff throughout the surgical procedure. Surgical competency was remarkably consistent with his genuine concern for the best possible outcome. As a patient, my office experience was greeted with the same excellence I’ve witnessed in the operating room. The office staff was knowledgeable, professional and courteous. The approach is definitely conducive for healing. My surgery was without incident and I’m grateful for patient advocates like Dr. Quinones who strive for excellence in care.”
