Following receiving her MD from Universitaet Saarbruecken/Universitaet Essen in Germany in 2003, Dr. Hoinkis went on to complete a residency in family medicine from the JFK Medical Center in Edison, New Jersey. Throughout her life, Dr. Hoinkis had always been involved with elders, and she believes her specialty in geriatric care was always destined for her. Losing her father gave her a deeper look into geriatric care, and seeing the personal experiences between staff and family stood out to her, so she gave up her outpatient practice to focus on the geriatric field.

Dr. Hoinkis admits that the health care system and can be challenging for geriatric patients, which is why she makes it her mission to deliver the best quality care possible. She attributes her success to reliability, consistency, and communication, and in five years’ time she would love to be in the same position she is in right now. Further, into the future, she would like to offer her expertise in the classroom.
