Friendly Office

Dr. Hinkle is unusually kind and patient for a physician. She never rushes you and is a very good listener during check-ups. Last year she took me in immediately after hours for a UTI--I was in and out quickly--and the office also took me in immediately for urgent care (diff. doc) when I broke a finger even though the power was out.

Would not go back

Dr. Hinkle apparently does not think patients have the right to make decisions about their own care. When I told her I choose not to follow her advice, she became hostile and practically screamed at me. She tried to scare me into taking a drug that many women choose not to take. I felt belittled and attacked throughout the appointment.
