very impressed with the overall experience. The easiness to book the appointment online, to the friendliness of the staff and the extremely personable treatment of the doctor and his assistants for sure was great especially in this city where customer service is lacking everywhere.

While Dr. Piniella himself seems capable and professional, his staff is a MESS. During an insurance change I was grossly overbilled and refunded only partially due to some accounting sorcery. Having decided not to deal with that again, I waited until the dust settled from my mini-cobra from my old job, my new insurance from my new job, my newer insurance from the new payroll company at the new job, and the newer newer insurance from the new payroll company dropping the plan I had just signed up for. By the time all that had gone by, it had been a year, so I call the office of Dr. Piniella to start my immunization, and they tell me that they can't find the records and to just come by in person. I do that, and one week later I take time off of work only to learn that I would have to re-start my diagnosis for allergy because it had been a year. Why tell me that on the phone when you have a wonderful opportunity to waste my time! In other words, folding a bunch of Benjamin Franklins into paper airplanes and throwing them into a bonfire would have been a better use of my savings over the past 2 years.

Dr Piniella saw me the next day. That alone impressed me. My testing starts next week and I can't wait for the results. His approach is much less invasive than another allergist who did blood draw of which all test were negative.

Dr. Piniella and his staff were professional, courteous and very efficient. Check in was fast since I completed some forms on ZocDoc in advance but some add'l information was needed. The Doctor did a thorough evaluation of getting my history and listened to everything I told him about my past experience w/allergy testing and evaluation. I feel confident his treatment plan is going to help decrease my allergy symptoms. So looking forward to getting some relief from an Allergist with experience.

Dr. Piniella was the first doctor, after seeing 4 ENTs, and 2 specialists over the course of about 5 years, that accurately diagnosed my problems. He not only cares about the treatment of specific allergies and respiratory problems, but also the patient as a whole- addressing immunologic and general health imbalances from the inside out. He listens intently to his patients, and genuinely cares about improving their health. He's one of the best doctors I've been fortunate enough to find! I HIGHLY recommend him!

Regarding office: fast paced and at times understandably loud with crying children. The staff was friendly and courteous. Dr. Piniella spent quality time with me to understand my concerns and gather relevant information about my allergy history. Sometimes doctors are only interested in quickly moving from patient to patient without regards to the patient's questions or concerns. He took time to eduacate me on allergies and possible treatments I should consider. Dr. Piniella cared about me both as a patient as a person.
