Dr. Brinker is a caring, cutting edge physician especially in the area of multiple myeloma. I have reached remission under his superb direction and care. He's the best! The closest we have here in GR to a myeloma specialist. Top knotch- highly recommended.

Dr. Brinker treated me for AML and septic shock. I not only survived the latter, I have been in remission 22 months. I cannot articulate the depth of my gratitude for not only my life, but for how Dr. Brinker helped my children, just young adults, during a potentially tragic situation. I truly hold him in the highest regard and will try to pass on what he so generously gave my family.

My senior father was in excruciating pain for 3 years. Dr. Brinker did a PET scan August of 2015 but did not look at it. December 2015-2nd colonoscopy in 3 years during which they found a large mass; colon cancer. Dad went in to the ER that night with an infection and they rushed him surgery the following weekend to remove the mass. For that I am thankful but not to Dr. Brinker who, during a follow up appointment took full responsibility for the miscommunication and not seeing it before.
