Dr.Sinclair lived up to her reviews! She was extremely polite and attentive. She made detailed notations of all my concerns and tried her best to address them. She assured me that things weren't as bad as I originally assumed but also let me know that I was more than welcomed to come back if my discomfort doesn't let up in the next few weeks. I wish that I could use her for all of my medical needs!

I have been Dr Sinclair's patient since January 2015, and have seen her subsequently for follow-up. She is a wonderful practitioner, very pleasant and low-key, no drama, gentle, explains everything, and has a just a lovely way about her. And on the technical side, she is amazingly skilled, and provides first-class and friendly treatment. Clearly, she cares a lot about her patients. Her office and nurse - Kourtney and Karlene - are also fabulous, and have themselves arranged appointments for me with other professionals as needed. They are all so pleasant, and so nice - it's a pleasure to go there. Addendum: I had an appointment there this morning, and just as I'm writing this review, Dr Sinclair called me with results and recommendations. I couldn't ask for a better practitioner and recommend her wholeheartedly.

Dr. Sinclair and her staff are warm, professional and very good at their jobs. I was called pretty much right after my paperwork was filled out, and she was in the room within 5 minutes of my arrival. She asked all the right questions, and diagnosed the problem quickly, giving me the treatment right then and there. I was in and out in under 30 minutes. She clearly cares about her patients and their well-being. Great experience!

I would gladly recommend Dr. Sinclair to friends and family. I was running a little late to our appointment but I was promptly attended upon arrival. I had some concerns/worries and she patiently heard me out and addressed my concerns. She ran some tests while explaining what she was looking for and after assessing the results, she laid my concerns to rest. Dr. Sinclair then recommended that I follow up with another doctor to potentially find the root cause of something that was bothering me, the recommendation made sense. Dr. Sinclair was great!

My visit with her was easily the best I've had with any doctor due to her fantastic bedside manner, and unlike with other doctors, I didn't feel rushed out the door. I wish more doctors were like her, and I would recommend her to anyone. 5 stars!

She might be my new favorite doctor. My appt was at 10:55 and I was sitting with her at 11am. That's extremely prompt, which I appreciate. She was very personable and listened to all of my concerns. Hands down one of the best bedside manners I've come across in a long time. She has a very pleasant personality and put me at ease with her demeanor and knowledge. I didn't feel rushed, but she was very efficient. Didn't push any prescriptions and clearly explained my options. I would highly recommend.

Dr. Sinclair was amazing. I recently needed my tonsils out and had a hard time finding a doctor with an open schedule. In my first appointment she was the first Doctor who made me feel like they actually cared about my wellness and the steps I needed to take to get there. The surgery was quick and easy and when I had a reaction to medicine she was very easy to get in contact with! I needed to get in contact with her about 4 times in the first couple days and she was so sweet and supportive and made sure I got what I needed. I can not recommend anyone more!

Dr. Sinclair was absolutely wonderful - in good spirits and yet very professional. She made me feel comfortable and took care of my issue right away. The only star I would deduct ist for the location - it is not exactly a nice waiting area and gets lots of traffic as it is located in a hospital building.

Catherine was absolutely amazing. I went in thinking I had an ear infection because I couldn't hear on one side and after being misdiagnosed by another doctor, she knew exactly what was wrong and fixed it right away. She's very attentive and nice. I'd highly recommend her. Thanks Catherine!

Excellent doctor. She is knowledgeable, warm and reassuring, and was able to explain quickly and simply what my condition was and how we could treat it. The office was efficient -- no wait at all. I wouldn't call having a tiny camera pushed up my nose a pleasant experience, but on the whole I give the visit an A.

Dr. Sinclair was compassionate and straightforward, taking time to listen and to develop an appropriate diagnostic plan. She was everything I had hoped for when selecting my doctor. Unfortunately the office had double-booked appointments and I ended up waiting an hour to see the doctor (which I suspect would have been longer if I had not complained). When I arrived at the office there were about 40 patients in the waiting room, and when I left, it was literally empty. I have no idea why they booked everyone at the same time, but I was at the brink of leaving after the hour had passed. Glad I stayed though, as Dr. Sinclair was very helpful.

I have never wrote a review online before but I really wanted to take the extra time to write a review for Dr. Sinclair. I saw her today and she was so attentive and informative about my ear pain. I have a sinus infection which lead to an ear infection and was going to take a flight on Monday. She immediately took notes, took the time to explain the treatment and gave her recommendation for treatment. It's rare to find a doctor who takes the time to listen to a patient and has such great bedside manner. I would highly recommend her to all of my colleagues and friends. Thank you Dr. Sinclair!
