OVERALL PROVIDER RATING

Rating based on the helpfulness of the doctor's nurse and/or medical assistant (MA)

4.8out of 5
  • November 11, 2022

    Dr. Brinkman is fantastic!

  • November 10, 2022

    Dr Brinkman takes her time and doesn’t rush you out. She answered all my questions and eased my mind on certain issues. I travel from Driftwood because she’s worth the drive.

  • November 9, 2022

    She is obviously knowledgeable and experienced, and was thorough, but I thought her manner was a bit dismissive and she made a very insensitive comment. I appreciate the care I received, but if I were faced with something serious, I'd look for a better bedside manner.

  • October 28, 2022

    Always enjoy my visit!

  • October 27, 2022

    Dr Brinkman listens well to my concerns and has helpful problem solving and advice.

  • October 26, 2022

    I reached out to Dr. Brinkman with a new concern about pain in my breast. She and her staff worked me into her schedule and I am already set for a diagnostic mammogram. I am so thankful for her attentiveness and quick action. Adore Dr. Brinkman and her staff.
