Fantastic bedside manner, answered my questions and those of the patient, my wife. He did cardioversion on my wife today and it was an amazing success. Truly not sure where these low scores are coming from

The first time I thought he may just be having an off day. He greeted me with "Why are you here?" and his demeanor did not improve. His body language is closed off. Minimal eye-contact, slouching, sighs: almost as being there were a chore. His cologne was also overpowering in the small exam room. Second time was probably even worse. Poor explanation of why I needed a catheter to my heart and what the procedure actually was. Not going again. Techs were absolutely outstanding. Sad to leave them.

Dr. Hinchman may be knowledgeable, but he is very cold and lacks empathy. His nurse isn't any better. We will be choosing another doctor for continued care.

He listened to me and my history. Did not rush. Patient listener. He was obviously interested and concerned. He checked my symptoms, developed a plan and corrected my AFib with a cardioversion in May. What's not to like?! He knows his stuff! Besides curing my AFib he is dedicated to making sure it does not return. He was very helpful reducing my drug costs. I'm looking forward to continuing with him as he helps me and my heart over the coming years!

In my experience, Dr. Hinchman cares, listens and he takes the time to answer questions thoroughly. An excellent cardiologist, he is a high energy professional, pleasant and knowledgeable as well as being truly involved in my overall health. I follow his advice because I thoroughly trust him and am assured he has my best health in mind at all times.

Dr. Hinchman has credentials but lacks the ability to communicate as a caring individual. There is a lack of any bedside manner.. He is passionate about his opinion and is not accepting of disagreement.
