Not happy with the end results or the fact that Dr Rios leaned over me during the procedure to grab an instrument and pressed his body down against my chest (more than once). The tray table and assistant were on the opposite side of me during surgery. Why thr reach over?????
Dr. Rios performed suturring on my breast after his partner removed my skin cancer. His bedside manner was overly casual and a bit arrogant. He apparently spent 11 years or so specializing in breast augmentation etc. He stiched me up in 1 minute flat. Enough to make me nervous. My removal was scheduled 9 days out with a PA. They appear to be very fresh but she removed them anyway and told me to be careful because the wound my open. Sure enough it opened over an inch long qnd a 1/2 inch wide. I went back qnd was only allowed to see the same PA qnd no doctor or surgeon. I was told I would just have a bad scar. Meanwhile my flesh is hanging out and they left no solution but a future of reconstructive surgey out of pocket! His practice was a cattle call of sorts with obvious focus on money and not the patient. I feel mutilated.
DO NOT go to this dr!!! I had a very small spot (tip of pencil) of skin cancer removed. Dr Rios assured me that it would not leave that big of a scar being that it’s on my chest. He left over 3 inch hideous Frankenstein scar on my chest!! I am unable to wear anything but a T-shirt. This has ruined my self esteem and his response to that was absolutely nothing!!!! How he still has a license to do this to other people is mind blowing!!
Dr Rios sewed up my face after sever surgeries. He did one skin graft. All were done with locals. His manner and skill is unmatched. I got to where I look forward to seeing him. I'm 71, pass for 50. Thank you Dr. Rios. You assured me my face would heal when I was scared and facing multiple skin cancers. I was in fear of life and multiple scars if I lived. You gave me courage and returned life to me! The scars have healed. Now it's pretty much just freezing. Your manner, skill and stories took me through a tuff time. Your a great surgeon and friend!
Dr. Rios' treatment left a large unsightly scar on my forearm that is not correctable. I am very sad/hurt having to live with this ugly scar and and when I revisited him his only acknowledgement was to refer me to other doctors. I have no choice except to cover it with a tattoo.
Amazing doctor and person!! He made a horrible situation better from the moment he walked into the room. Dr rios did surgery on my son's face, he got bit by a dog. A year later, You can't tell where the stiches were! Highly reccomended!!
I recently had a breast enhancement from Dr. Rios, I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a surgeon. Very nice and professional, he makes you feel comfortable. If you have questions or concerns he does not mind helping. The procedure itself only hurt the first two days and then virtually no pain, so no pain pills he actually doesn't even prescribe you them. If I could give 10 stars I would. His staff is also very nice, Beanie is awesome and helpful.
Dr. Rios is by far my favorite doctor!!! He is one doctor that is 100% passionate about his work. My sister recommended him to me and with no hesitation I booked my appointment. From the beginning he was 100% honest and you wont find many doctors like that. From the second I meet him I knew he was the doctor for me. His sense of humor puts you at ease and makes the experience even more exciting. The day of surgery he even called me to see how things were going and that right there made me know I chose the right doctor. I honestly don't think I could of asked for better results and personally I don't think another doctors work would of even compared to his. Best part is no one can even tell I have had breast implants because they look so real.
First, I had to wait 45 minutes in the waiting room. Then, Dr. Rios walked in and greeted me very unprofessionally with "let's talk about boobs". He was dressed very casually, jeans and a polo, and yawned/rubbed his eyes several times during my consultation. When asked what my goals of surgery were, I explained that I wanted to make my breast enhancement look as natural as possible. He laughed at me and said that wouldn't happen. Very rude and arrogant. Main concern is money, not patient.
Dr. Rios is a one-of-a-kind doctor who definitely has his patients best interests at hand. His work is impeccable!

A very easy person to work with. I had to have a cancerous area removed from my face and am very satisfied with what resulted from the surgery.
From the instant I met Dr. Rios, I knew he was the surgeon I wanted to work with. His operation technique is amazing! He told me I would not be in any pain but I didn't believe it until I experienced it for myself. I had Absolutely NO PAIN & didn't need anything more than Ibuprofen, No drains, No narcotics, No compression bras. It's been about 2 months now & I couldn't be happier with my results! IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR AN EXCEPTIONAL SURGEON, DR. RIOS IS THE ANSWER. He & his staff are AMAZING!
I absolutely love Dr. Rios! He was awesome when my 6 yr old son got his birthmark removed from his eyebrow! He is very down to earth and doesn't mind actually talking about stuff! I would totally recommend everyone to go to him!
I did several years of researching Doctors and researching breast augmentations and talked to friends who had breast augmentations. I had my consult with Dr. Rios and immiediatly knew he was the one to do my surgery. His bedside manner was absolutely wonderful. He answered all my questions and made me feel at ease with my decision. Going into the presurgery consult i knew i wanted a much larger size then what i originally had which was a B cup, so we decided to go with 800cc which is a DDD. For my body type, ( im 5'9" 209lbs) they look perfect. I was afraid they would be to big but i am 100% satisfied and love them. From my very first consult to my most recent follow up consult with Dr. Jose Rios i have been extremely happy and would definitely recommend Dr. Rios to anyone interested or even thinking about getting a breast augmentation.
It is with great pleasure that I write this review for Dr. Rios and Dr. Lapinski as well as their staff. I went in for a removal of a spot in my forehead and they took care of it almost pain and scar free. Their staff is caring and considerate of patient's time. I would fully recommend them to my family and friends.
Dr. Rios is great, very kind and professional. Would recommend. Very satisfied with BA results!
I am writing this 3 months post op after having breast augmentation surgery with Dr. Rios. The entire process has been wonderful and I cannot thank Dr. Rios and his staff enough for doing an amazing job from start to finish. CONSULTATION PROCESS: I went to my free consultation and had a wonderful first impression. Dr. Rios was very professionally, knowledgeable, and patient but most importantly he had a very genuine personality. We sat for 45 minutes and he let me ask as many questions as I wanted and also offered up tons of his own information without me having to pry or ask. I opted to have a second consultation with a well-known surgeon in downtown Chicago just for the mere fact of comparing information but in all honestly I already felt like I had my mind made up to see Dr. Rios. I must say I was not impressed at all with the physician in downtown Chicago (even despite his beautiful office suite and expensive imaging equipment). I felt no sense of trust or compassion like I did with Dr. Rios. He was totally understanding and supportive when I asked to have a second visit where I could bring my mother in to meet him and again he was just as down to earth. Finally, It was time to try on sizing. This experience again was not at all rushed and also very laid back. He made the whole experience exciting and shared his opinion in a way that was not at all pushy but rather informative and enlightening. SIZING AND SURGERY DAY: I was initially a 34B (5â��10â��, 160lbs) and chose to go with 450cc silicone implant inserted underneath the muscle with my incisions being inframammary. His office staff guided me beautifully through the scheduling and payment process. I chose the Naperville Center for Surgery and would highly recommend them as well. Day of surgery, Dr. Rios made me feel very comfortable and explained the process well of what to expect. Day of surgery recovery was not bad at all. RECOVERY AND FOLLOW UP: I went through all of my recovery with only taking Tylenol or Motrin and by day 5 or so I was not taking any medicine at all! Dr. Rios called to check in on me and everything really went as I anticipated from our conversations prior. I was back to work within 6 days (took a little longer only because I do some strenuous work). I checked back in with him at 2 weeks where I received a bouquet of flowers from him (not something you see very often). Also went back at around 4-5 weeks and then 3 months, today. RESULTS: I am in love with the work that Dr. Rios did. I am in the medical field myself and understand the importance of getting total care. This is exactly what I received from beginning to end. I chose to write a review for the mere fact that anyone contemplating between plastic surgeons should truly know exactly what to expect and how wonderful he makes the experience. My end results are incredibly natural looking and feeling and are exactly what I was looking for in the end. My breasts now have very minimal scarring, no loss of sensation, and a beautiful shape. RECOMMEDATIONS: My recommendations to any patient considering this type of surgery is to always get consulted by at least two physicians, do your research, and to go with your gut (not just with what everyone else recommends, how fancy the office is, or how well-known). You want someone that listens, cares about your opinion, and most importantly makes you feel comfortable. Surgery can be a scary time for certain people and if your physician is not easy to converse with then it makes for a harder process. Lastly, I would recommend anyone who opts for surgery to wait until at least 2-3 months to consider writing a review. Your body goes through a lot of changes and from my research a lot of reviews are being down only a couple weeks post op when you really do not even have anywhere near close to your end results. That is all :) Thanks for reading and I really do help this lengthy review can help somebody chose to make the best decision (choosing Dr. Rios that is!).

I saw Rios and Lipinski for skin cancer on the top of my head. I was very satisfied with the professionalism and in particular Dr Rios reassuring demeanor. I would highly recommended the both of them.
