I had a tummy tuck and liposuction on my sides done by Dr. Rios in August 2012. It was the best decision I ever made in my life. It completely changed my life. Not only is he an incredible surgeon, but he is a great listener. He was extremely easy to talk to, and he put me at ease with any of my concerns. He gave me confidence that I was lacking. I can't even begin to describe how much meeting him has changed me. My body has been transformed like I never believed it could be. I had what they call a "b" belly after having a baby and losing a lot of weight. My stomach is now flat. It has the belly button I had always dreamed of. I never thought it was possible. Dr. Rios is skilled, professional and truly cares about his patients. If you only knew the confidence I was lacking in my body, until he transformed me! He made me feel special at every visit, and I will never forget what he did for me.
Tummy Tuck and Liposuction
Just a note to thank you and your professional crew for the great service you provided me. Both at the Frankfort office and the Joliet office also. Everyone was just fantastic. Appointments were kept on time. And all of their attitudes was fantastic. Dr. Lapinski it just shows what can be done when it starts at the top. You are great. Please let all know how much I love them.
I am truly grateful to have found you as my doctor, if it wasn't for you I might not be here today. I truly thank God for people like you. Thanks eternally.

Marilyn, Spring Valley
Just a quick note to thank you for the genuine kindness that you showed me this past Wednesday during my procedure. You went above and beyond to put me at ease and keep me calm during the procedure. I'm sure I wasn't the easiest patient to deal with, but I truly appreciate the excellent care you provided me with. The three of you are truly angels.
Multiple Biopsies and Excisions
We're having a great time on our vacation. Finally got to the hot tub and it feels wonderful! We're both enjoying the "new me" thanks to you. And, I'm getting lots of hugs!
I want you to know how happy I am with the results! Thank you so much for being the great doctor that you are!
Breast Reduction and Tummy Tuck
I want you to let you know how much I appreciate all you've done for me, especially long phone calls prior to surgery for the silly fear that I may turn out "too big." As if there is such a thing as "too big!" Most doctors do not take the time to call their patients both pre-op and post-op to make sure they are okay. You do fabulous work and make your patients feel special. Thanks again for everything.
Thank you for the flowers. Also I can't thank you enough for the extra care you gave; you are a wonderful doctor and did a superb job! I only wish there were more doctors in this world like you.
Sue, Saint John, Indiana
Thank you for helping me achieve a 6 year dream! I am in love with my new tummy! You need your own show! Dr. 60345! You're great!
Tummy Tuck and Liposuction
I just wanted to say thank you for the great care you gave me for my skin cancer. I was so lucky to be referred to you. I really hit the jackpot. Not only are you a wonderful doctor but you also run a great practice. From Josie who when above and beyond her duties to help me with my insurance to all of the nurses who helped me before, during, and after surgery and the girls that set up the appointments and I'm sure there were more people behind the scenes. Everyone was just super. You should be so proud of your practice. I will tell everyone how great you gals are.
Thank you very much for your method of practice along with your compassion. It is refreshing to know there are doctors who are humans as well and are caring about their patients.
Thank you for your care and compassion. You guys are the best.
Excision of Malignant Skin Cancer

I can't say enough to you and your staff. Your staff is great! The staff at the surgery center is great! You will always be successful with the back-up you have. I hope and pray that you will be even more successful and that you stay the same as for the attitude and all. God bless you doc.

I just wanted to say thank you so much, I really appreciate the excellent work you did for me, 6 months later and I am still extremely happy! You did such a wonderful job I really can't tank you enough! You and you're staff are wonderful!
Brittany, Tinley Park
Thank you so much for being my surgeon. You are so thoughtful and nice. I'm so happy I came to you. Thanks again and see you in a few weeks.
Gina, Elmwood Park
This is a little late in coming, but just wanted to show our appreciation for your very professional and very personal care of Josephine. The thoughtfulness and understanding shown by you and everyone in your office made it much easier for Josephine to go through this. This level of care doesn't seem to be the norm these days. Keep up the good work. Thanks again.
Mohs and Repair
...I cannot speak more highly of the Rios/Lapinski medical team. I have never met such caring, compassionate and dedicated surgeons. In fact, their entire staff is that way. I feel that they really went the "extra mile" with me, something of which and industry is a rarity these days... I've had surgery before and I have been with other people that have had surgery as well. I have, however, never heard of or seen a surgeon stay bedside with their patient for several hours in ICU. Dr. Rios did with me!...
Thank you very much to everyone at the Frankfort facility. My elderly mother was a patient there in 2016. She has severe mobility issues and is in pain throughout much of a typical day. I had visited the facility days ahead of time, delivered my Mom's medical information to spare my Mom the first-time visit hassle, and gave the folks in the reception area some background information to help with the initial visit.
We found that everything — from check-in to the examination — went well, exceeded my expectations. The Rx information had already been entered in the system and the Dr.'s assistant focused on my Mom's immediate problem. The folks in the reception area, the doctor's assistant, and Dr. Kaniszewska were polite, courteous, and efficient (sorry I did not get all the names).
Out of the dozens of doctors visits within the last 2-3 years, this was far-and-away the best experience we had.
Thank you, once again.
