in Seattle, WA |
I have been a patient of Dr Hinds for many years. It has always been a great experience and would highly recommend Dr Hinds and his staff.
Thank you so much for the wonderful review. Our goal is to provide our patients with the best care possible. Please keep us in mind regarding your healthcare needs.
Seattle, WA |
Referred to Dr. Hinds for dysphagia associated with EoE. Did not seem interested in identifying the root allergen, instead put on PPI's and told not to do food sensitivity/allergy testing or elimination diet. He did admit he wasn't that familiar with EoE. This treatment caused severe GI distress for much of a year and resulted in the formation of numerous diverticulum. Thanks to his poor advice I now have a lifetime condition. Another doc identified my food triggers, resolving the EoE.

A very knowledgeable and caring physician. I will be recommending him to my friends and family. His staff was also top-notch. Be aware that GPS may lead you to the wrong building.
