My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My philosophy is to put the patient first and act as your health care advocate. By this I mean I will provide your physical health care needs and provide emotional support in a patient-friendly environment. I treat my patients as family members and help guide them through the complexity of today’s health care system. This philosophy develops partnerships with patients to achieve these goals. This involves enhanced preventive care. Honest and open communication with the patient is paramount. Patients are always treated with respect and compassion. I believe that each patient is a complex individual with his/her own unique biopsychosocial components. As such, health care needs must be addressed and tailored to each individual. A “one size fits all” is obsolete in today’s health care environment.

I see Dr. Brinkman quarterly. Routinely, blood is drawn and sent to the lab. He called me later and advised that I was almost anemic and instructed me to gry Kenosol at a pharmacy and take one daily which I have done. After my last visit, he called me and advised me that my hemogobulin levels were normal. This is an example of how Dr. Brinkman follows up on the health and welfare of his… See more

from Ken in MO March 11, 2020 for Robert A. Brinkman, MD

I can text him on a weekend and get an immediate… See more
