About Krystal M. Trinkle

Philosophy of care

I want the children and families in my care to lead a healthy life by providing them with the tools necessary to do so. As a nurse practitioner, I feel that education for families and children is the key to achieving a healthy lifestyle. I provide education on sleeping, eating, hygiene and exercise habits to prevent diseases and create a healthier lifestyle. I also provide safety education with emphasis on car seat safety. I would never recommend a treatment or provide guidance for your child and family that I wouldn't recommend for mine.

Why I entered medicine

Growing up, I was always interested in working and caring for children. During my senior year of high school, I took anatomy and physiology and found I loved the intricacies of the human body and realized I could blend the two by becoming a nurse. I knew that pediatrics was my calling and began my career in the neonatal intensive care unit, then floated among pediatric units as I decided to become a pediatric nurse practitioner. I get to work with children and their families, and share in their growth.

Community involvement

In the community I participate in car seat check events. I am also very active in my children's activities.

Personal interests

We are huge fans of Disney and enjoy going to Disney World. We also enjoy traveling and experiencing new places, including different beaches. Personally, I love arts and crafts, cooking and baking. I enjoy doing arts and crafts with my children and we also love to cook and bake together. We are also active outdoors and enjoy practicing soccer, dancing, walking our dog and running.

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
