Patient Comments (6)
Dr Brinz never gave up in assisting me to get a diagnosis to an extremely rare disease. Many other doctors did. After my diagnosis she continued to monitor my long journey with this disease. She is not only exceptionally qualified as a physician, but she is also compassionate human being.

I've been a patient of Dr. Brinz for about 10 years now and she is just the best of the best. She takes her time to explain every medical issue, she listens and calms any fear, then explains how she plans to attack the problem.She also assures you that she will be with you every step of the way while you are fighting cancer. She is not rushed like most doctors and takes her time with you. I have NEVER left her office afraid I didn't understand everything I needed to know.
Sweet caring Doctor. Down to earth and takes her time with patients and reviews all your records thoroughly - enjoyed the visit!
