Ratings for Dr. Judith M Brinkman
She lacks any understanding or concern. She does not follow up or ensure we were comfortable. We had a miscarriage and the nurse was the one who told us as she watched us leave the facility. When we need a follow up appointment we could not reach her nor did she return our calls
Judy Brinkman is an amazing doctor - so caring and knowledgeable, and so are her staff! She was highly recommended to me, and I am thankful she was so close to where I live on the East side of town, especially while going through my first pregnancy. I would recommend her to any one any day - such a wonderful woman and doctor! The most recent review below sounds like that person is crazy or didn't see Dr. Brinkman and is confusing her with another doctor - that is certainly not the experience I had, nor what my friend had.
Worst doctor ever. My 15 year old daughter was referred to her by our former primary care doctor. My daughter has a chronic pain syndrome. Dr. Brinkman told us that she was making it all up. She said she had not even reviewd my daughter's records. She was very insensitive and heartless. Do not take your worst enemy to see this lady, she should not be practicing medicine. Totally unethical, downright mean.
This was my first pregnancy. During my first ultrasound, I was only about 5 weeks along, so there wasn't much the ultrasound tech could see. But she did say that she saw a heartbeat. Once we met with Dr Brinkman for the first time, she was rushed and had no time for questions. She said that we may be catching a miscarriage and "The jury is still out on this one". Which I thought was extremely unprofessional. We were told that someone would call us with lab and ultrasound results. This did not happen. Once my miscarriage started, I called the office. The nurse was surprised to learn that nobody had called to inform that this was going to happen, because there was "no cardiac activity". I was told to go in the next day for blood work. Once I got there, nobody knew why I was there. They took my blood and sent me on my way with no instructions or guidance. I had to go to the ER just to get some questions answered and an exam. I still haven't been contacted by Dr. Brinkman. Find another Dr
Dr. Brinkman seemed nice at first, however she turned out to be very unprofessional. She caused my baby to have a pneumothorax and no doctors even checked me out after my C-section. It was as if they were avoiding me. In fact, I had to request that someone give me directions on my after C-section care. She was a terrible surgeon and my recovery was horrid. This was my second C-section so I had something to compare it to. Avoid her at all costs. I wish I had done my research. No more CSHP for me!!
I love Dr. Brinkman and think she is a great physician. She is knowledgable, caring and takes individual time with you to answer your questions. At the first appt. for my fourth pregnancy she used a small ultrasound machine and couldn't find a heartbeat. She immediately got me an ultrasound at another CSHP location so I could get a definite answer. The technician was able to find a heartbeat and Dr. Brinkman called me back later that day to check on me and apologize for scaring me. She was very sensitive and went above and beyond. I contined to see her and she delivered my son several months later. I have contined to see her for my yearly exams ever since.
I was Advanced Medical Age for my one and only pregnancy and Dr. Brinkman was wonderful with me. She discussed all the tests I HAD to have and she helped me decide whether or not to use those that were optional. Dr. Brinkman always made me understand the reasoning behind the "dos and don'ts" with pregnancy and never used scare tactics. She was always very professional with me and her staff knew me on sight with every visit. I sometimes had to wait at my appointments, but never more than I have experienced with any other doctor. I bring a book to read.
I had seen two other Doctors before choosing Dr. Brinkman for my OB doctor. She is absolutely amazing and has been there every step of the way. She admitted me due to internally bleeding and abruption. She stood up for every one of my needs when other doctors questioned it. Before being admitted every time I called or was seen in the office I always felt like my questions mattered. I would hight recommend Dr. Brinkman!
