I am so thankful I didn't listen to the negative reviews about Dr Hindes. I was 30 minutes late to my appointment but was still taken well care of. The office was polite and friendly. The Dr had come in and explained everything I needed to know. By the time he was done explaining everything, I knew what I wanted to do and what was going to be done in the procedure. I went in alone so I'm glad I had such a genuine, safe, and understanding Dr. theres no doubt I recommend Dr Hindes.

Dr. Hindes and his wonderful staff made a difficult situation much easier. They worked with me to get billing issues addressed and follow up care was great when i had questions/concerns. Thank you.

Dr Hines is a very compassionate man. His staff as well. Was referred here for a tragic situation that was utterly heart breaking for us. The entire time I was there I was shaking and sobbing. When the Dr came in he couldn't have been more compassionate. He talked to us for a long time about our feelings, what to expect, he understood I was scared and so so so sad. The way he spoke and the extra comfort he gave made all the difference to us. Dr Hines I don't know if you read these, but thank you

Went to make the toughest decision of my life yesterday. I so left after watching him chase after a disabled woman. Like omg I sat with caring for her bae. She was clearly upset over her care and I'm not trusting him with mine and think it was all for the best. She had a cane caring for like 2 boys So my what if moment
Dr. Hindes care was outstanding. His womens' clinic is providing an amazing service to women in need, and he is comforting and helpful to them. I am extremely grateful I found him.

I made my appointment for 1:30, and was 10 minutes early. At about 2:00 I asked why everyone else was being seen before me, who had been waiting for much less time, and they told me it was due to a policy they have (which was never explained to me) that they tell you your appointment is a half hour prior to when it actually is. Which means they will tell you 1:30, when it is actually at 2:00. At 2:20, an hour later, I asked for my copay back, as I had to leave back to work, still not seen by Dr

Dr.Hindes and his employees defenitley made my visit very comforting. He was there to answer my questions and respond to my statements. He interacted and cared when he was seeing me, I would recommend this man to be anyones doctor!(: Thank you so much.
Dr. Hinders has been My Dr. For quite a few years. I would not change a thing. No matter what the issue, Dr. Hindes is very professional, understanding, and willing to go the extra mile to meet and treat all of my medical concerns and treat them accordingly without judging. Very polite and courteous staff with clean office as well. I highly recommend this Dr. Thank You Dr. Hindes. Brenda Hall
Pretty bad. Rude, incompetent staff. Was attempting to be diagnosed without them actually knowing what was happening with me. Was informed that if I had scenario A, I could take their only option which would yield a 40% success rate and most likely require me to go to the ER for Emergency surgery to have a tube removed. Was laughed at when asking questions.
