Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Brinkman "My "Golden Rule" is to treat patients as individuals as I myself would want to be treated. I strive to provide the best care possible. I try to make certain that the patient unerstands their condition, the operation required if necessary, and all available alternatives. I enjoy treating a wide variety of conditions from simple skin lesions to complex intra-abdominal malignancies."

I met Dr Brinkman in wound care treatment after emergency surgery due to acute diverticulitis. He took such good care of me and showed he genuinely cared. He was so extremely trustworthy I asked him to do my reversal. That was 04-21-2016. I would highly recommend him for surgery again. I was never...more
