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 A “one size fits all” is obsolete in today’s health care environment.

from Lynn in MO March 30, 2018 for Robert A. Brinkman, MD

I have had the good fortune to have Dr. Brinkman as my primary care doctor for over 20 years. There are many things you take for granted in life and having an exceptional doctor is one of them. Dr. Brinkman sets the example for what it is like to have a physician who is pro-active, listens to your issues/symptoms and follows up quickly - and personally - with all test results. Thank you,… See more

In October of 2016 I survived a stroke at the age of 51. I hadn't been to the doctor except maybe one emergency room visit in the past 20 plus years, due to fear, and I'm a guy and thought I had all kinds of things wrong with me and honestly didn't want to know. My parents were patients of Dr. Brinkman and MDVIP and the day after my stroke signed me up as his patient, helping… See more

from Judith in MO March 5, 2018 for Robert A. Brinkman, MD

I can't tell you how many years I've been going to dr. Brinkman for my medical care but it has been a pleasure throughout. I've come to know him on a personal level as well as a doctor-patient level. Both have been a pleasure and the move to mdvip has been an enjoyable experience. It seems he has 4 more time to spend and can really focus on a number of issues, fully explaining… See more

from Vicki in MO March 2, 2018 for Robert A. Brinkman, MD

Dr Brinkman has been our family doctor for many years. When we have had to contact him after hours, he has been very caring and helpful. He is always available to help us with our health care needs. He has called in prescriptions for us when we are out of town. He has given us suggestions to help with our health issues that are non prescription. He treats us as a professional, but is… See more
