What People Say About Dr. Paula Pinkston, MD
Reply
She CURED a condition I had been struggling with that no other physician was able to.She then got ill and when I was able to find her again, HCHP had closed their pulmonology department. I would love to fine Dr Pinkston. She practices medicine with caring and concern. And she's wicked smart about her work.
