Dr. Pinksen has been my doctor for over 28 years. He always makes time to listen and answer questions. He is knowledgeable and will consult with other doctors if he is unsure of the best treatment. He is very busy though and it can be difficult to get an appointment with him. His nurse practitioner is more available and is great too for times when you can't wait to see the doctor.

I am Don's patient since he started at the Guelph Community Health Centre. 30years? He has always treated me well. He takes time to look at all issues and possible treatment. He is kind and helpful and I think a good Family Doctor. He is not to god in helping you how to loose weight but good in telling you that you should. But I think all doctors are not to good at that. It is often difficult to get to see him. I can't imagine that there is a better doctor in Guelph! The front office is a different story. Depending on who you get on the phone, it often seems like they are gate keepers, trying to keep you away from the doctor. Not all of them! There are a couple who are helpful. The nurses are always great but still often need the doctor to help them out! Overall: You take the Good with the Bad. I don't want to take the chance to go somewhere else, might not be better.

In a world of "fast food" medical care, Dr. Pinksen stands apart. I've been a patient for more than 20 years and have found he is always willing to talk, listen, and understand your entire health and well being. He cares.

Dr. Don is an excellent doctor! I have gone to him my entire life and have always felt comfortable and welcomed whenever I had a problem. He is very gentle, compassionate and always makes me feel comfortable talking about my issues. I would recommend him to anyone and I will be very upset when he retires.

He's gentle, kind, respectful. Willing to learn as he goes, and takes into account a patient's inner expertise of what it's like to live with a particular condition. Prudent & moderate w/ use of drugs and procedures. Honours boundaries; willing to challenge and be challenged; admits when he doesn't know something. Open to both learning and to helping another person learn. Explains things with patience and clarity. Respectful and friendly w/ clinic staff at all levels. Gentle with touch and physical exams. Listens deeply; looks you in the eye; smiles. Very present. Timely with paperwork. If he's stressed, it can show...but always, he does his best. Considers the whole person and their overall circumstance; a community-minded doctor. Clear about his limits. I feel very safe in his presence. He is a gem!

Don Pinksen is two faced. Will back stab you depending upon his mood. Even you are a staff member and if you are leavinghe association he will not give you a good reference. He is not everything you see.

Very patient, explains in detail. Takes his time with you. Very pleased with the whole practice with the exception of Paula at the front desk. She makes me feel like I am always inconveniencing her and wasting her time by calling. She needs an attitude adjustment in the worst way
