Terrible. She was very rushed, very cold, and showed very little interest in my treatment. A few times she didn't even see me, but passed me off to her Physicians Assistant. Probably the worst doctor I've ever had the misfortune to see.

Was referred by my oncologist after breast cancer treatment. Her office did not informed me that she was out of network so I had to pay $500 for the consultation. I had a blood test just before seeing her that was billed $2,612.62. I asked what it was for and the technician told me that is was for HIV testing and others, I thought it was a simple blood work, not such an expensive lab test! Out of pocket with insurance $781.34 and NO DIAGNOSIS. I cannot trust a doctor who wants to feed her greed.

When I needed a second opinion and transfer of care, Dr. Pinter-Brown saved my life. She is very honest, patient, and courteous with her patients, making herself available to answer any questions and always offer the big and small picture of each scenario. Treatment was a mutual decision; I appreciated feeling directly involved in my care.
