  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Best doctor EVER!

Dr. Brinckhaus is the most caring, concerned, understanding and kind doctor I've ever known. With each and every visit, he treats his patient like they are the only one in the world at the moment. He listens completely to his patients and never interrupts. He explains completely what is going on, what tests may be needed, etc. In today's world of rush, rush, rush, it's hard to find a doctor like this one. As far as promptness, the only reason he may be running a tiny bit behind is because he gives all of his patients the same courteous, kind and understanding service.

Excellent Doctor

Dr. Brinckhaus is an amazing doctor. I've been seeing him for 24 years, since he began his practice actually, He's slow but once he gets to you, you get his full attention, time and dedication. There is no other doctor that compares to him when it comes to caring, medical knowledge, and again dedication. HE'S HE BEST. I recommend him to everyone that is looking for a doctor. I love his office staff as well. I go tere monthly for diabetic check-ups. He also knows Spanish.
