I would never advise anyone to go there. I have arthritis, stenosis, sacroiliac joint, degenerative disc disease, back spasms so bad I can't walk and his suggestion is physical therapy. I have done physical therapy for years. This pain is way past that. He does not listen to his patients. I will never go back.

This man is the most unprofessional doctor I have ever met! He told me once he didn't have time for this s##t, my questions to him about my treatment, and promptly left the room. On a much later visit after being his patient for a couple of years, against my better judgement, he became upset accused me of filling a complaint against him and promptly decreased my medication,I needed up until that day, to basically nothing. I stay in chronic pain due to him and am housebound unable to live.

Dr Rink is a very rude person, has no compassion for a human being, yells at you, doesn't care to listen to anything you have to say, tell you what he's not going to do, instead of help he rather make you suffer, I would never recommend anyone to him not even my worse enemy!

I have degenerative bone disease in L4 and L5 with arthritis,I also have sacroiliac joint disfunction n my right hip with arthritis, his treatment is physical therapy. I have excruciating pain n my back and right hip with pain shooting down both legs.I tried physical therapy and it made it worse.I went to a pain clinic that gave me injections n made a world of difference.Dr rink said the only way he would give me injections is if I was 80 and on my death bed just to make my last few hours better
