Do not like that he refers outside labs with questionable reputations. Little choice was given even when I noted past bad experiences with his choice of lab. While you do see the real Dr not a nurse; he does not seem that interested in a diagnosis of your problems.

Dr Brinkman is only interested in treating people with high paying insurance. If you are on Medicare, the staff will tell you there is a two year waiting list even though before they found out I was on Medicare, there were plenty of openings. So sad that our elderly patients are treated this way!
