I would highly recommend Dr. Tinkelpaugh to anyone. I was a little apprehensive when I arrived but he set my mind at ease. I did not feel rushed and he took the time to listen to my symptoms and history and answered all my questions.

Dr. Tinkelpaugh went above and beyond expectations. I have been feeling very disappointed & disillusioned about my health care options and he assisted in my search for a primary care and renewed my hope for help.

Finally a doctor who listens to you like an individual and not a majority! I have rare diseases and he was willing to listen and address any issues I had. He guided me in the right direction, and connected me to a supportive group of medical professionals for the treatment I need. You will be happy with the time you invest with Dr.Tinklepaugh!

By far the best Dr I have ever had in my whole life. You can tell he actually cares.
