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 A “one size fits all” is obsolete in today’s health care environment.

We were at our second home in Pebble Beach and received a phone call from our daughter saying she had received a text from her brother saying he was in an ambulance on the way to the hospital. We had hired Dr. Brinkman about 6 months ago and had been so very happy with the care we have received and knew that our 44 year old son was without a primary physician. I got on the phone and called… See more

Dr. Brinkman encourages me to take the healthy path, he referred me to the 1500 calorie diet, the only problem is that I quit on it, but He has encouraged me to get back on it, he was very gentle in his suggestion, which I appreciate greatly.
