I broke my arm and I just knew I was gonna have to have surgery. I have a huge fear of needles. I went in to see Dr. Hinton the first thing he said no surgery. We are gonna let this heal on its own. I can tell my arm is healing. I am getting stronger by the day. Dr. Hinton you are the most awesome...more

I would highly recommend this physician. Excellent bedside manners, friendly office staff, convenient parking, no recording when you call (you speak to a live person), fast appointments. You are treated like family when you walk through the door.

Dr. Hinton listens to the patient and responds to their needs. Takes the time to explore all tests to find the problem if not easily found at first. Has a kind manner and appears to care about his patients.
