I have confidence in this physician. Dr. Hinton is always caring and shows compassion for my medical issues and involves me in the process of deciding my care when appropriate.

Patient | May 29, 2018

Always a treat to visit Dr Hinton. He's always terrific with me and recalls our past conversations quite well, including non-medical matters on which we share interest. Slight downside this time because I got rescheduled by a week and could not be placed in my preferred early a.m. slot. This lead to predictable delays during my visit and is exactly why I target early appointments. Dr Hinton was forthcoming about the reason for the reschedule and I completely agree that it needed to happen.
