Dr. William Brinkman

Doctor Brinkman was outstanding in every way as we met to talk about how I was going to proceed with my ascending aorta aneurysm. He spent over an hour and explained to me what my options where and gave me a detail explanation of how he would proceed. I have 100% confidence in Dr. Brinkman that he will be able to fix my problem with surgery. I highly recommend Dr. Brinkman.............. bob torti
