Pompano Beach, FL |
I had a simple wrist fracture, which in the grand scheme of possible orthopedic problems is relatively minor - yet Dr Hinkes and his staff took ample time to reassure me, answer all of my questions, and treat the injury with care and expertise. This is a very professional practice, and at the same time kind and "human." I would definitely call upon Dr Hinkes again, should I need orthopedic care.
Miami, FL |
Dr. Hinkas was very knowledge and professional. He gave very practical advise which I follow.

A+ Experience with Dr. Hinkes and his staff. He was kind, compassionate and thoroughly explained all the treatment options available to me. I ultimately choose to undergo shoulder surgery with him in December 2016 and so glad I did. Great Doctor, Great Staff !!!
in Tamarac, FL |
I have been going to this doctor for years. There are reasons for that. First of all, he treats me with great consideration and concern. He talks to me about what I am experiencing and listens well. His whole office staff, everyone I have come in contact with, has been upbeat and positive and helpful to patients in any way they can. I always feel good when I leave this office. I would not go to anyone else.
Thank you Jeanne for your kind review. We are happy to hear that you had a pleasant experience in our office. We really take pride in treating all of our patients with respect and hope everyone leaves with an understanding of their condition and how we plan to treat the issue to make them feel better. Again, thank you for taking the time to write your wonderful review, it will be shared with the staff. Hope to see you again soon.

Dr. Hinkes is an excellent Doctor . I've been his patient for some time now and have had surgies with him and he's done an awesome job !!! I recommend this doctor . He's great and knows what he's doing . Anyone on here who has posted anything negative about this doctor is out of their minds . He's not there to tell jokes or to humor you in anyway, if you want to be entertained then maybe you shouldn't go to a Drs office As I previously mentioned , he's awesome at what he does (treats patients)
Pompano Beach, FL |
Dr Hinkes is thorough! He has treated almost every member of my family; 82 year old mother; daughter, with multiple soccer injuries; special needs son with spinal issues; oldest son with ACL and meniscus tear; and most recently, myself, meniscus tears and knee fracture. Needless to say I trust him with all family members and I don't say that about many. His office staff is also extremely helpful and friendly!! Another added benefit is the onsite PT staff. They are fabulous!!

Doctor spends no time with patient. If he is over booked then schedule less patients. I waited a while for my appt. and still got no time from him. I felt like he couldn't care less. Will not be going back. Oh. I've been a patient for 3 years I've now had enough.
Pompano Beach, FL |
Very good doctor.
Ft Lauderdale, FL |
Listen, you don't go to the doctors office to be entertained or to gossip you are there to be treated. This Doctor did an EXCELLENT job. I was extremely satisfied with the quality of care. And I must add the front desk is hilarious. Very friendly and fun always quick with the appointments. OVER ALL I wont go anywhere else.
Pompano Beach, FL |
Appointment was quick. Evaluation was spot on without unnecessary testing and anticipated healing time was in accordance to diagnosis. Listens and has proper manners and cleanliness.
in Boca Raton, FL |
If i could give 0 stars I would. This man put me through unnecessary pain for 6 months. I went to another doctor and he was absolutely appalled by the condition I was left in. He shouldn't be practicing medicine on anyone at all. He has the bedside manner of frozen robot. He's Indifferent,cold, rude, bordering on mean. He's desensitized and uncaring. He made my life miserable, told me that i should just live with the pain. New Dr. fixed me in 1 visit! Confirmed what I knew all along.
in Coconut Creek |
Completely unsympathetic and unfriendly. Did not explain anything. Wrapped arm with elastic bandage too tight, the next morning my arm from the elbow down all the way to my fingertips was completely swollen. Did not say anything about showering or after care and did not say how long to keep the elastic bandage on.
