Dr. Rios is a board-certified plastic surgeon who has decades of plastic surgery experience and rigorous training. His engaging personality combined with technical precision and uncompromising standards have earned him a reputation as one of the premier plastic surgeons in the area.

Dr. Rios attended Princeton University and earned his undergraduate degree in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. He later went to New York University School of Medicine to earn his medical degree, performed his residency and fellowship at The University of Texas Southwestern.

Alongside Dr. Lapinski we created Pinnacle Dermatology because we love what we do. It makes going “above and beyond” – for everyone in our practice – come naturally. Over the years, we have aimed to provide the highest level of care delivered with a familiar, down-to-earth approach. We recognize that our patients, our providers, and our support team are the reason we exist, the reason we set out to create this experience, and the reason we are always striving to make it better.
