Same story as others. Dr. Brinkman will hold your prescriptions hostage if you dont follow his instructions to a T. Childish behavior, If you dont do as he says will take his ball and go home. Recommends his lab that will cost you more money. When I first went to his office, the office policy's he expects you to sign off on were enough, I should have known better.

Dr. Brinkman has horrible bedside manner. Refers you out for anything other than a cold. Tries to rush your appt. & get in & out of your room as fast as he can. Does not let you ask questions. Holds prescriptions hostage until you get lab work done. God forbid if he actually has to touch you, because he acts like he is repulsed. All of the older nurses & staff who were nice & helpful are now replaced with a bunch of dimwits.

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!

I would highly recommend Dr. Brinkman. I took my son to his first appointment yesterday, and Dr. Brinkman was knowledgeable, kind, and compassionate. He took the required amount of time with my son to handle what was needed, treating us both with the utmost respect. His receptionist, Ashley, and his assistant, Lori?, were exemplary, very nice, kind and helpful. Ashley got us an appointment right away, and we were so grateful. We are so happy to have found this doctor - will stay with him.

We have been coming to Dr. Brinkman since he started practice. He is a wonderful, Christian man who cares about his patients. He does not order unnecessary meds or tests. You just cannot fine a better family doctor!
