Saw dr tinker for a little over a year. I really had a good experience with him and the staff and would have recommended them until I found out that he did some blood work and left out the fact that I have lupus! That blood work was done in 2016 and I just found out from my primary doctor about the lupus yesterday while she was going through all my tests. Very disappointed and now I have to try to find a new doctor. It’s so disheartening.

Terrific experience from prior paperwork, professionally greeted, detailed review of symptoms, up to Dr. Yonker himself. He went over my past surgeries with me & made recommendations on each of my issues. His manner is very compassionate & his knowledge is exceptional. Thanks very much to the entire staff. Highly recommend.
