Dr Hinkle has a great bedside manner. He is very thorough and answered all of my questions. I would recommend him to anyone.

Doctor very attentive and answered all of my questions. He clearly explained my sleep issues. Doing well after sleep study and I am still working with Dr Hinkle to make even more improvement. Very satisfied thus far.
in Baton Rouge, LA |
When my wife was in the emergency room because of a severe, persistent cough, Robert Hinkle was arrogant, rude, and dismissive of our concerns. He rejected a tentative diagnosis by an otolaryngologist, who had just performed a thorough examination, as grasping at straws, even though Hinkle had not examined my wife and had only spoken with her for a few minutes. His only recommendation was that she be examined by a psychiatrist. She was, and was found to be mentally healthy.
Flat out told my father I don't have time for questions and answers
