I felt stupid for going and like I basically wasted my time. Waited for an hour in the exam room too. Took two months for appointment. After he said he wanted to see me in May. When I got to appointment desk the earliest appointment was the end of July!

When my husband was very ill Dr Hinton told us he should have a feeding tube.He had gone the hospital up walking and eating, but he had been unaware of anything for several days, because he had a seizure. Nurses had told us he may be asleep because of meds. We ask if he could be eased off the meds so that we could tell the real condition he was in. He said Do you want to take over this case, if you do you can have it because its just a job to me. Hospital said we had to retaine him any way.

After seeing Dr. Hinton, my life has changed! He listens to everything I have to say and is so well versed in his medical knowledge, he knows the best treatment and it is always the best route for me. He has never steered me in the wrong direction. I don't know where I would be without him. Since moving to his new location, wait times are better than ever and he always spends the appropriate amount of time with you. You never feel rushed out of the appointment. He's always prepared & a great Dr.
