What Patients Say

“If I could give 10 stars I definitely would! Dr. Hinkle gave me my life back! I had so many lady health problems and I was miserable. Every doctor gave me the, ‘Let’s give it more time,’ speech because of my young age. Dr. Hinkle and his staff went above and beyond my expectations . They listened to my concerns and took immediate action upon any test results that came back. Dr. Hinkle NEVER made me feel like I was ‘just another patient.’ He is EXTREMELY knowledgeable and truly cares about his patients.”  

“I went to labor and delivery at Alaska Regional when I was 34 weeks with full-blown contractions. We thought for sure the baby was coming… Dr. Hinkle is (nothing) short of amazing. I wasn’t even a normal patient of his, but he made me feel comfortable and calm… We were able to figure what was wrong and stop the labor, so my baby could stay in a little longer. I’m very pleased with the care I received from Dr Hinkle. He didn’t brush my worries aside, actually listened to me and made sure I was comfortable. I went home knowing what triggered my pre-term labor and and how to prevent it. Thank you Dr. Hinkle!!”
