I see some of these reviews and I'm shocked. Through the good and the bad and I've had bad doctors and bad experiences in the past and I can say that dr Hindenburg is a true testament of why I still believe in doctors. Dr Hindenburg is patient, courteous, willing to listen to you and answer any questions. He is also a doctor that is always available 24/7 I have been going to dr Hindenburg since 2009 and he will be my doctor for life. As one other person stated in the review he is scientifically oriented yet strives for a more natural solution they couldn't have said it any better!!! One other thing I must know is that the office and staff is very courteous and they understand patients and they're sensitive to patient's needs especially when your body doesn't love you and does whatever it wants and they make you feel at ease. If I could I would give him 100 stars :)

A wonderful doctor who is open to patients' ideas; he is scientifically oriented, yet strives for a more "natural" solution if appropriate. And he always returns calls!
