Doctor Schlinkert is a exceptional, thoughtful, caring person. It is people like him that restores man's hope in humanity. He is not only caring and thoughtful, but unique. Living a long distance from the Mayo Clinic Hospital where I had esophageal surgery, some 14 years ago,it was just recently (2011) that I encountered a serious medical issue and had no where to turn to.....I placed a call to Dr. Schlinkert's office in Arizonia.....and to my surprise ( I must say shock) within a matter of 20 minutes or so, the doctor was on the telephone, explaining several avenues I could take to hopefully remedy my problem. The ratings of excellent does not justify how this special doctor should be classified, he is a rarity in today's world
This Thanksgiving, I wanted to share my appreciation for all that you do! Thank you, doctor! :)
