I am blessed to have Dr. Pinches as my doctor. Not only is he brilliant, dedicated, and professional but also compassionate, patient, understanding, and thorough. Even though he has so many patients, he addresses every single thing you want to talk about during your appointment without making you feel rushed. He always has the sweetest smile that makes you feel at ease. I was very impressed with all his staff. They are very helpful, available, reliable, responsive, and considerate.

I have been with this doctor for almost 4 years now and he is the best! He is very caring, compassionate and he goes into detail about what is going on with you and explains what the treatment options are and why. I have not ever felt left in the dark about my condition or treatments he recommends. His staff is very friendly and you can see that they enjoy their job because they have been there for so long, it feels more like a family working together.

This is honestly a doctor that I won't recommend. Only does 2 ultra sounds threw out the whole pregnancy and asks the same basic questions everytime. I lost my baby at 36weeks the day I left his office, i didn't sue him simply because nothing will bring my baby back. I've heard so many similar stories! He needs to retire he has deteriorated in his career! Also very heartless when he told me that my baby had no heart beat 2 weeks after they called me to congratulate me. Broke my heart.

I scheduled my appointment at least 2 weeks in advance. The girl who scheduled my appointment barely spoke English. She failed to mention to me that there was no parking for customers complimentary and that the doctor will be leaving 30 minutes after my appointment time. I specifically told her that I lived two hours away and needed to plan this carefully. I did not find these things out until I was already minutes away. Her attitude was so Careless on the phone that I decided not to even go ins
