Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

He is no longer at Cincinnati Children’s; we saw him in Indianapolis. Once he found out we were Cincinnati Children’s he became arrogant, expressed his reasons for leaving, and rolled his eyes when I stated who my daughter’s rheumatologist was. He told us that Ehlers-Danlos is only recognized as a physical condition in the US and everywhere else it is considered a neuropsyciatric disorder. He stated that patients should not be labelled as EDS because insurance will not cover anything. He also arrogantly said that the only physical therapists who are knowledgeable about EDS are those he has personally trained. Our referral was for further testing for vascular type EDS due to a family history, but he dismissed that in the first 30 seconds of the appointment and we left without testing. We will not see him again, nor would I recommend him to anyone else, especially if you or your child is a previous Cincinnati Children’s patient.

Beware- if coming in for am evaluation for or treatment for EDS, if for whatever reason Dr Tinkle looks at your intake paperwork and decides you are a waste of his time, he will not bother to thoroughly examine or treat you.
