Having this experience with her [Dr. Endrika Hinton] was a dream. I was never bounced around for treatments because she handled everything. She is sensitive to the expenses of fertility treatments, she stays current with the newest medical literature, and she truly listens and takes feedback. Her bedside manner is informative, and she balances being friendly and direct without ever being pushy.
Her [Dr. Endrika Hinton,MD] office staff does a great job of communicating. I’ve never had a single administrative issue and they are attentive to appointment times. The only downside to being pregnant is that now I will be switching away from Dr. Hinton to OB care...Dr. Hinton is a top-tier surgeon and phenomenal doctor. Thanks to her care, I am pregnant after trying without success for a year!
How was your experience with Endrika Hinton at Endrika Hinton, MD?
Dr. Hinton is a top-tier surgeon and phenomenal doctor. Thanks to her care, I am pregnant after trying without success for a year! Unfortunate events left me with uterine adhesions after a surgical procedure, which I had no idea about. Dr. Hinton quickly diagnosed this after reviewing my history and discussing details with me. As a result, she performed a hysteroscopy. At first, I was afraid with my bad luck things would get worse but I saw Dr. Hinton on the day of surgery, and her assurance and confidence put me at ease. My procedure went perfectly because of her expertise, and a couple of months later Dr. Hinton performed an IUI, which was successful. To be frank, I’ve had friends go to large scale practices like Shady Grove only to feel like they were just a name on a queue. I read older reviews before writing this, and I believe some of them seriously misrepresent Dr. Hinton. Having this experience with her was a dream.

Dr. Hinton was always nice to me. She is definitely a blunt person though. I do feel she gave me some false hope as she told me after my laparascopy I should have no problem getting pregnant but that was not the case. I think she is very knowledgeable though but it's probably very tough to compete with fertility clinics.... We then tried two IUI's with clomid with Dr. Hinton. It was difficult to coordinate everything because she is the only doctor and the lab is offsite. It was not a very smooth process and hard to schedule everything.
If you're looking for a one-stop-shop for fertility treatment this is not it [Endrika Hinton, MD]. They are not open 7 days a week and blood work, specimens, etc. take place offsite.... My biggest issue was that the labs are not on site and it takes a lot to arrange for your IUI because you have to make sure it meshes with her schedule since she is the only doctor. Trying to conceive is stressful enough without trying to coordinate different times and places.

Describe the protocols Endrika Hinton used in your cycles at Endrika Hinton, MD and their degree of success.
Dr. Hinton performed by laparascopy. After having that she told me to try to conceive on my own for 6 months to a year. We were unsuccessful. We then tried two IUI's with clomid with Dr. Hinton. It was difficult to coordinate everything because she is the only doctor and the lab is offsite. It was not a very smooth process and hard to schedule everything.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Endrika Hinton, MD.
There really wasn't much of a nursing staff. I think she had one MA who worked with her.
Describe your experience with Endrika Hinton, MD.
Dr. Hinton is knowledgeable and seems very capable. My biggest issue was that the labs are not on site and it takes a lot to arrange for your IUI because you have to make sure it meshes with her schedule since she is the only doctor. Trying to conceive is stressful enough without trying to coordinate different times and places. If Dr. Hinton had been in a clinic setting I would have continued my care with her.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Endrika Hinton at Endrika Hinton, MD.
My IUI's were covered by my insurance. I believe I had to pay a minimal amount to hit my deductible.

I suspect she [Dr. Endrika Hinton] committed malpractice with my care, and completely missed a diagnosis that she should have made. She also made mistakes with the very basics of infertility treatment -- for instance, having me trigger for a date when I knew ovulation had already passed. She could never recall where in the cycle I was, so I was always needing to try and compensate.
