Patient Comments (3)
in Plainville, MA |
We've been with Dr. Brink for several years now and love him. He treated our son with compassion, a very quirky sense of humor, and always with respect. He made our teenage son feel involved in his own care and as our son grew older he very appropriately transferred his treatment recommendations away from Mom and Dad and to the child himself. His communication is excellent and he always sent us a personal email showing his latest lab results and recommendations. Highly recommend!

We have been seeing Dr. Brink for over 13 years now. I cannot say enough good about him. He is a world renowned endo with an A+ bedside manner. On occasion our wait time might be longer than we would like but that is because he is giving the previous patient and the family the time they need. Knowing we have been on the receiving end of his time and attention, we understand why there might be a wait. He will be our daughter's endo until he is no longer practicing medicine!

Been going to Dr Brink since my teens. He always finds enough time to see me and go through any issues I've experienced. I trust his opinion and advice.
