Dr. Brink is wonderful. She was interested in my daughter's mental as well as physical development. In particular, I asked about daycare centers -- a matter of considerable concern to parents but WELL outside the realm of physical health -- and Dr. Brink took the time to elicit my concerns and discuss them with me.

Dr. Brink is the best ped. in State College. She knows her stuff, and really takes the time we need to make sure we are making good clinical decisions, but she is straight forward and blunt, but we appreciate her concern and respect her expertise. She will give her opinion, but will allow the parents take the lead on decisions.

Dr. Brink is an amazing doctor. We are blessed to have her care for our children.

this was the second time Eli has been seen for moluscum and the first time was with a different provider. I was much, much happier with Dr Brinks approach. I trust her completely and always feel like she has my kids best interest at heart. it's never about money or insurance rather about results and the best treatment for the individual child.

I'be never been disrespected as a parent more than I ever was at this appointment. Dr. Brink was really lacking in her bedside manner. I know she is a very intelligent doctor but her lack of people skills leave a lot to be desired.

While I have always liked Dr Brink and her professional expertise, I do feel that her tact is lacking in recent visits. In front of my teenage daughter, she made more than 1 comment on her weight gain and her current weight. This is not a child that is overweight. However Dr Brink's comments made my daughter feel like she is overweight. If there is a concern about my daughters BMI, the dr needs to have this conversation in private with me, not in front of my teenager who is already facing body image issues.

We have had a long standing relationship with Dr. Brink and have complete confidence in her. On this day in particular though I felt as though I was being attacked for not getting my daughter in sooner and for how I was handling her care. She has been having these issues for several weeks and we had been in a few weeks prior. I made this appointment when we weren't seeing improvement. Dr. Brink can be difficult to get in with and we didn't want to see someone else so it took me about a week to get an appointment. I feel like this was probably the end of a bad day and unfortunately I got caught up in her frustration.

Dr. Brink is amazing. She knows my child so well and it is like a mini reunion when we get to see her. We so appreciate the love, care and concern she demonstrates to all family members. She is a genuine asset to your practice.

Dr. Brink is the very best that there is. She is why we come to Geisinger, for her expertise and knowledge. There is nothing she isn't able to address!

I am still waiting for a response from Dr. Brink regarding the recommendation of an ENT dr. It's been 2 weeks.

Dr. Brink is one of your greatest assets. I would and do trust her implicitly with the lives of my children. Additionally, she tells you like it is, and is balanced in her approach to treatment. When/if Dr. Brink leaves, we will probably not stay with the Geisinger practice.

She ordered follow up tests, and in retrospect, I wish I had been better prepared to interpret the results, which initially caused confusion. She was EXCELLENT in helping to get us a referral to a specialist.

Dr. Brink is the best pediatrician we have ever worked with. I am so thankful she is my son's doctor.
June 21, 2016
Dr. Brink is always great, and as first-time parents we rely on her experience and advice. At this 1-year visit, in particular, we had some concerns that were not strictly medical (developmental stages, handling transitions, etc) and Dr Brink was patient with us, informative, and very helpful. We appreciate that she is interested in our whole baby.
