What People Say About Dr. Brian Rinker, MD

I had a double mastectomy with reconstruction by a tummy tuck. My breast are uneven. 1 is bigger than the other. 2 sizes bigger than I had asked for. When someone has NO CHOICE about having surgery, they expect to come out feeling better about their self. I've regretted letting him touch me. Not only did breast cancer devastate my life, Dr Rinker destroyed it. If I could give a negative score, I would.

In my opinion, Dr Rinker has the spine of a jellyfish and will not be his patient's advocate. He is not too different from many doctors who will side with their colleagues over patients who have obviously been harmed by the medical industry. There is an epidemic of cowardice among doctors, and Dr. Rinker is near the front of the line. It is my opinion that patients should pass this doctor by and keep searching for one who will show strength of character & integrity, even when it is difficult.

I trust this doctor, he makes you feel comfortable and at ease and that's not easy for me. He talks to you and not at you or above you.
