As a family practitioner, I find most rewarding the ability to develop personal relationships with patients and being in an environment that fosters continuity of care. Family medicine provides such a challenging diversity in patient population from infants to elderly and allows me to treat a variety of ailments in pediatrics, obstetrics, gynecology, psychiatry and geriatrics. I value working within the dynamics of the family unit and the ability to estabilish personal, long term relationships with the patient. I cherish a holistic approach to medicine where the entire person needs to be treated including his/her physical, emotional, and spiritual self. I also emphasize education and preventive screening in addition to traditional medical care.

Dr Bincy is wonderful. She listened to my concerns and understood what I was going through. My Daughter is a DPT and asked me to ask Dr Bincy certain questions. Dr Bincy was not put off by this and realized why my daughter had these questions and understood more about me. I also love that she has responded to my emails very quickly too. I really liked her and how she listened and wanted to help me.

instead of having to call back the office because I missed a phone call it would be better to just leave a message in my portal or leaving a text message by phone. I don't have the time or patience to call back and get an answering service then be put on hold just to tell me my labs. either that or have the medical assistants carry a phone which we could call back directly.

She was recommended to me by a nurse my husband knew when receiving chemo therapy.She was knowledgeable about a couple of meds I was taking that were not working well with my condition and took a blood test in the office to see if another med I was taking was correct. Her easy demeanor made me comfortable and she was very approachable which I appreciated very much.I'm so happy I found her!

The provider is great. If she leaves, so does my family. I can't stand the call center. No one there answering the phones knows a darn thing about offices or protocol. There is no common sense. No matter who I talk to, no one ever fixes it. That is why I strictly use the provider to make appointments or make them in person. I just can't chance it on the phone any longer.

I feel like I get the same stock answers and not real info that would help me in my situation. When I bring up ideas that might lead to answers, I'm dismissed. I state what I've tried as suggested, and it's just repeated that I should try again, even though I have reported that it does not work.It is getting near impossible to see my PCP. When I do need to see them, there is never an appointment so I'm told to go to Immediate Care or occasionally try other doctors in the practice, whom never have appointments either. Patients are not first at this organization.

more than the visit - I'm furious with the follow up! I'm a frequent flyer of the medical group, way back to LMG - so I'm used to a certain kind of follow up. I got several calls but when I returned the calls those particular people were busy so I asked them to leave me a voice mail since I wanted my blood work results - but again I got messages to call back. Finally I told them that I wanted to talk to someone with the information ... after waiting for awhile I spoke to someone that didn't even work with my Dr and she read me my Dr's notes... She wanted me to start taking a prescription of Vit D because my level was so low - I've boon taking that prescription for more than a year! She also wanted me to know that I was anemic - I've been anemic for many years, since my gastric bypass surgery - with no advice to help me with it. Also, she wanted me to know that my A1c was up & that I should eat several small meals so that my blood sugar doesn't go low. I was so confused because we we spoke about my pain levels being so high along with my blood sugar because I'm on disability I can't afford the medical cannibus - she suggested that I see the hip specialist & I did. it's been 2 years of dealing with the same issues, it might be time to go to someone else. Things have changed so much at that office! I get the feeling it's not about me & my Health!
