Dr. Sinclair has been my doctor since 2016 and because of him my health is been more stable than it has been in years as he really cares about his patients and is concerned about keeping them as healthy as possible. I like his friendly demeanor and he fully understands my overall health situation.

Dr. Sinclair completely dropped the ball regarding my wife's ITP. He was impossible to get a hold of directly without making an appointment (even when she had bleeding gums and a CBC below 10) and his staff improperly filed paperwork to get an IVIG (they failed to expedite it). My wife finally had to go to the ER after 4 days of no advice of immediate treatment from Sinclair and his office.
