She was abrupt and very rude. She asked two questions and talked the rest of the time. She did not address any of my issues and when she was done talking she she got up to leave as I tried to ask her a question. If you need a urologist stay away from her. Worst doctor ever.

I have been a pt of Dr Pinke's for quite some time. Ihave been a pt of hers for some time now and she has done surgery on me. I am disturbed by the negative comments contained in her reviews. If you're unhappy with her, find another doctor. Dr Pinke is a consummate professional, and excellent doctor, and frankly is undeserving of the comments regarding her 'bedside' manner. All doctors working within the confines of the insurance industry are all under pressure to meet certain requirements. that being said, nearly all docs are pressured into seeing as many pts as they can. As a pt, I make sure that I advocate for myself by being as informed as I can about what I'm seeing the doctor about. Dr. Pinke's initial contact is a bit stiff and awkward, however, if you as the pt take a few minutes to educate yourself about your condition and ask the doc, you will find that she is warm, personable and has a great sense of humor...I find her to be an awesome doc, she knows her stuff and is willing to share her knowledge with her pts, if they advocate for themselves

Dr. Pinke has been very good. I would recommend her. I like that she is not only a Urologist, but an Oncologist. This cancer journey is tough and she has made it as easy as possible. I love her laugh!

She may be an excellent Dr. but there is no reason to treat people rudely. She is short and abrupt, condescending, and has no empathy. It can't be uncommon to go to a specialist a little frightened and worried about what is wrong. I believe part of a patients treatment should include acknowledging and easing those fears, not making a person feel stupid for feeling that way. I left her office feeling stupid and annoying to her. Next time my doctor says I need to see a urologist, it won't be her.

Dr. Pinke is very concerned about a patient's health. Changes in medicine were addressed to ensure better care. When a change in medicine had additional concerns they were addressed the same day she and her staff were notified. Her staff is very easy to talk to and resolve any issues. I would recommend her to anyone.
DISBELIEF OF HORRIBLE CARE

SAW DR PINKE AT MONTICELLO CLINIC. FIRST NURSE THAT BROUGHT ME INTO THE EXAM ROOM TOOK MY VITALS AND PULLED UP THE PICTURES FROM MY CT SCAN ON COMPUTER THAT WAS IN ROOM. SHE TOLD ME TO WATCH THE MONITOR AND IF AT ANYTIME THE SCREEN GOES INTO SLEEP MODE QUICKLY MOVE MOUSE SO THAT THE PICTURES WOULD REMAIN ON THE COMPUTER SCREEN. IS THAT NOT AGAINST HIPPA REGULATIONS? ARE NURSES ALLOWED TO LEAVE A CLINIC COMPUTER OPEN, UNSECURED ALONE WITH A PATIENT IN AN EXAM ROOM TO DO AS THEY MAY? AFTER THE NURSE LEFT THE ROOM I WAITED FOR 1 HOUR AND 20 MINUTES BEFORE DR PINKE CAME IN. SHE WAS RUDE, SHORT, NOT EMPATHETIC NOR HAD ANY TYPE OF WARM DISPOSITION. SHE SHOULD BE WORKING WITH CORPSES INSTEAD OF LIVE BODIES. SHE NEVER EVEN ACKNOWLEDGED THE FACT THAT SHE KEPT ME WAITING FOR AN HOUR AND TWENTY MINUTES. NO APOLOGY NOTHING. I DO NOT TRUST THIS PERSON. I DID REPORT HER TO MY PRIMARY DOCTOR AND WILL NEVER STEP FOOT IN ANY TYPE OF FACILITY THAT SHE PRACTICES IN. I CAN NOT AND DO NOT TRUST EVEN WHAT HER DIAGNOSIS OF MY ILLNESS IS. HOW COULD ANYONE "TRUST" SOMEONE WHO TREATS OTHER PEOPLE LIKE THIS? I HOPE EVERYONE THAT MAKES AN APPOINTMENT WITH HER WILL READ THIS BEFORE. NO PATIENT SHOULD BE TREATED LIKE SHE TREATED ME. SHE NEEDS EXTREME TRAINING ON GOOD CUSTOMER SERVICE/BEDSIDE MANNER. I WENT TO HER BECAUSE OF A SERIOUS MEDICAL ISSUE. HER WAY OF TREATMENT DOES NOT HELP HEAL PATIENTS.
She is..."Simply the Best"!

Dr. Pinke diagnosed my bladder cancer when other doctors had failed. She explained all of my options while still making me feel hopeful of the outcome. She successfully removed the bladder and prostate and "happily" informed me after surgery that she was able to remove all of the cancerous cells. I was able to leave the hospital within 3 days! She and "ALL" of her associates are truly the very best in the business. Thanks to her I can still remain active and enjoy the rest of my life!
