Dr. Dinkin truly goes above and beyond. Appointment does not feel rushed he truly took the time to listen to my complex case and get to the bottom of my issue. He listened to my complete medical history to gain the best understanding and was extremely wise and thoughtful. He took the time to throughly look over my scans and make sure he was coming to the appropriate diagnosis. If you’re considering Dr. Dinkin look no further he is everything you want in a doctor and more with an excellent compassionate demeanor.

Took my special needs teenager to Dr Marc Dinkin today. He was so patient and thorough and listened to all the background history and answered all my questions. One of the best doctors we've seen, and we've seen a lot!

Dr. Dinkin is the nicest doctor I have ever met. He is so knowledgeable and kind and caring and explains things in a way you can understand without talking down to you. I cannot recommend him highly enough. I travel nearly 3 hours each way to see him!

Dr. Dinkin is a superb neuro opthamologist with a lovely manner. My only regret is that each appointment takes so long. Other than that he is tops in his field and I feel very confident in everything he tells me, suggests for me and his plan for helping my condition.Clearly Dr. Dinkin knows his field of expertise and has the ability to explain conditions to patients in a manner that we can understand, which is not always the case with doctors. I am glad my Neurologist recommended I see him.

It was a mere waste of time. No honesty in work, diagnosis or course of treatment prescribed. This facility exists merely to grab your insurance money. Stay away from this place. State regulators need to launch investigations on billing practices.

I have never written a review on a public forum before, but found this doctor to be one of the most extraordinary I have ever met. He took so much time and care in examining my daughter and through this very careful exam noticed some very subtle things that so many others had overlooked. A brilliant diagnostician with an incredible bed-side manner (I saw this in the way he interacted with other patients as well) and runs an efficient and professional office. The gold standard of MDs

My 16 year old son had an allergic reaction to an antibiotic he was at Morristown Memorial Hospital for 1 week and could not figure why my son could not see, walk and lost all of his motor skills. I finally gave up on them and found Dr. Dinkin online he examined my son for 3 hours and had a diagnosis my son had swelling of the brain due to the reaction of the medication they called it cerebellitis. He walked with us to the hospital made sure my son was admitted and the healing process began.

He was extremely thorough and not put off by the fact that I had educated myself about my condition. In fact, he welcomed that. He spoke plainly, pleasantly and with authority and conviction. He was able to provide immediate mitigation of a problem that had lasted over two weeks and correct what was a gross misdiagnosis by the previous doctor I had seen for this problem.
