Never have I been to a more compassionate doctor in my life. Although he is a surgeon, and a EXCELLENT one at that- his demeanor is anything but that of a surgeon’s. He spends more time with me in office visits than my primary care doctor ever has! Great bed side manner. He seemed completely dedicated to correcting my many ENT problems- and he has!
Dr. Robert Pincus has been my doctor for many years now. I’ve recommended him to family, friends and neighbors without reservation and will continue to do so. Dr. Pincus is personable, loves sharing his extensive knowledge and expertise, and gently but firmly encourages his vast number of patients to take responsibility for their health and well~being. He practices what he preaches and is the best advertisement for his simple and effective preventative methods. He looks so healthy and happy to be alive! Dr. Pincus is compassionate, patient, caring, a great listener and sharer. He’s a fascinating man, whip~smart, knows his stuff… a world~renowned, top~rated physician. His staff is professional, efficient, effective and all very courteous, helpful and respectful. When I recently experienced severe financial hardship, he worked with me on fees not covered by insurance~such a rare, generous physician! God bless Dr. Pincus! He’s one of the very best there is!
