More importantly, it’s the outcome of years of hard work and dedication to his practice and the community. Dr. Pino has a passion for medicine, and caring for his patients like family. 

Every day I feel lucky because I have the opportunity to take care of people in our community – those that have become family and friends, and those who I meet for the first time. Sometimes it is not just about taking care of their injuries and illnesses, sometimes they just need someone to listen. What an honor to be able to do this for people in the town I live in.
