What People Say About Dr. Richard Hinton, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

HORRIBLE experience. Came in throwing up. Could not lift my head. This guy had ZERO sympathy even though my family told him I had been to ER twice, been put on two rounds of antibiotics. Once again told it was a migraine, EVEN though I know what migraines are (had them since I was 8 years old). Asked for spinal tap that was recommended by family ER doc in LA. Said no and Dismissed me. Found out from next doctor I had meningitis. Had a few choice words. Never an apology even after family told him

I saw Dr. Hinton in 1999 and said at the time he was the best doctor I'd ever been to---so thorough and intelligent. He makes you feel as if you are his only patient and he'd spend all day answering your questions! Fast forward to 2017 and being the primary caregiver for a dad with Alzheimer's. No question when I got Dad moved to Dallas who we'd be making an appointment with---Dr. Hinton! And again, Dr. Hinton was spectacular! His compassion, caring nature, and staff are icing on the cake!

I was referred to Dr. Hinton after years of misdiagnoses. His expertise and individual care for each patient is a rare find. Every step of my treatment process is thorough, every question answered and he genuinely cares. His assistant, Cynthia is undeniably THE essential part of Dr. Hinton's team! Her kind and amazing spirit compliments her professionalism and resourcefulness. You aren't just a name. She is an advocate and a liaison for you. I couldn't ask for better.
