in Colchester, CT |
I had my first visit with Dr. Tinklepaugh this week. I was delighted with him. He was warm, kind, and listened to me. He was genuinely happy with my progress, and willing to explore other options if I should need them in the future. I would absolutely recommend (maybe insist) my family and friends see Dr. Tinklepaugh if they need a neurologist. He was a breath of fresh air after seeing my former neurologist who recently retired. I'll no longer dread my visits.
