Dr. Brink is amazing! She is an amazing doctor and great teacher. She not only cares greatly about her patients, but also works to get to know the entire family. She listens thoughtfully to all concerns. We are very thankful to have her caring of our children for the last 14 and 16 years.

my daughter has special needs and Dr Brink is excellent with her. she talks to both of us and recognizes when my daughter is nervous and responds appropriately. we have worked with many doctors and she is one of the most caring we've seen. she isn't afraid to tell me what she's thinking but has always said she defers to the mother. she is truly an amazing care provider.

We feel blessed to have Dr. Brink as our children's pediatrician. She has been their doctor since our children have been born (ages 15 and 12). I could never write enough positive comments about her{illegible or inappropriate content}.We feel that our children's health is in the best hands with her. She is extremely knowledgeable and thorough and continually demonstrates that she cares about the well-being of her patients. I always appreciate that she takes the time to make sure we understand her diagnosis and the care plan. Dr. Brink is AWESOME!

Dr. Brink was great. It was a prenatal visit and my pregnancy has had some complications, so I wanted to know how those would affect pediatric care. We discussed delivery options as they affect the baby and the mother-child bond; the first few months of life and its impact on the parents; sleeping; and the schedule for and purpose of pediatric visits. Dr. Brink covered all the usual bases AND gave me advice specific to my situation.

Dr. Brink helps to put a parent at ease about the entire visit. She is always on point with any developmental steps my child is at or is about to approach. I appreciate her candor and her helping me to keep in mind what is developmentally appropriate for my child. She also helps to consider my other children and how they impact each other in health and developmental issues.

I will never take my child to this doctor again. Showed NO concern or even acted like she was listening to me. Had to ask her questions about what she found. When she left the room she didn't say goodbye I had no clue if she was returning. When I opened the door to find her I was asking a question and she kept walking away and gave a short answer. That is not how a person should be treated! Very irritated and will never return to her.

Dr. Brink is top-notch, always thorough, informative, and very supportive. I am so happy we have found her.
