If you are looking for a doctor who will listen to your concerns he is not the doctor for you. Be prepared to schedule more than one visit if you have more than one problem. Do not expect any time form him to listen about your concerns if you have trouble sleeping, are in pain, or if you are suffering from any kind of depression.

Well I must say he is a great doctor. I trust him with my life. I read the last post a patient wrote with too much detail. I say ignore that last post as someone that is so concerned about her privacy sure has no problem posted way too much information that no one else really wants to read. I too had a student in the room with me and the student actually sewed me up after a removal of a lesion. The student did a great job and I was asked before I was seen if I minded if the student came with. I find it hard to believe that last post and note that the poster had several issues with other doctors so maybe... Just maybe it is her that is the problem and not Dr Binkard or his staff. I also find it hard to believe that Dr Binkard ran out of the room with your medications like a "dog with a milkbone". The nurse took my medications right after she took my blood pressure. Frankly I truly think you are full of it. He is a wonderful doctor and his staff do a great job. Take that review with a grain of salt..

the mystery of the missing test results

nearly 5-years ago we received a letter of introduction informing he was taking over the practice of our former doctor--so we decided to book an appointment. first i was introduced to a medical student who was present and both he and dr binkard left the exam room taking my bag of rx's [which i had been instructed to bring with me as a first appointment requirement] like a dog running off with a milk bone--.i thought it odd at the time that they would both leave the exam room and not have assigned this to the intake nurse to record patient meds and as most patients sit there in stupified compliance as we have been taught as children to never question the actions or lack of, medical providers.. a few rotten former experiences had left a bad taste in my mouth and as he was taking over the practice of one of these physicians i had been over-anticipating his better treatment. a physician's assistant had advised me to consult with a primary care doctor to request a prescription that he could not order as the doctor he worked for had left his practice. even after this total disregard of my privacy i still had not given up on him believing that the hippocratic ethics were still alive and well even in this city of slim pickings of primary care a diabetic i was to go every 3 months but had to set up my own appointment and requested a longer one to include an overdue pap test. very abrupt, very insensitive to comfort of the exam and he noticed my extreme abdominal pain as he pressed during my exam, made a mention of not understanding why it was hurting me..also agreed to check my lumbar area were i had been dealing with disk degenerative disease..he made a dismissive comment regarding the lumbar and cervical spine.. i left very disgusted and when i didn't hear back concerning my pap test a few months later when i called i was told that it had never been opened upon its return from the lab..i asked if i could have the results and i was told abruptly that all seemed to be okay.. so nearly 5-years later i have requested these records as the only ones i received were the medicare summary statement which his staff had quickly billed for not neglecting this vital concern--so i am sent a release form and a note saying that no such letter could have been written by him as to inviting us to his practice and i would need to write a check for $18 for records of just 2 visits and my own record of the pap smear which i never received..i called and was told that even if it was only a few pages that was the fee. i told them that medicare used to allow patients their first request for records, but i was dismissed with the only way i would receive any information at all is if i forked over the money...i also referred to the note about the letter ["which 'didn't exist"] and suggested that i have all my records and i would try to find it..which i did after searching all my notes and receipts..and the pain that he said he didn't understand was likely the adrenal tumor and adhesions later diagnosed a bit too late; the lumbar and cervical problems are to date required a spinal surgery or risk paralysis that i had to undergo less than 2-years of neglect[this last appointment]. so after nearly 5-years i may learn if my pap smear results were negative..if anyone else has experienced more professional treatment then i am so happy for you.. i can only speak for myself and had they been more polite when i requested my records then i may not have ever taken the time to share this..
