I have known Dr. Binks for many years and collaborated with him on multiple research and clinical endeavors. I have found his work with patients, his clinical insights and his teaching and supervision of trainees to be outstanding. Most recently, he and his company have been providing consultation in the development of technology-based clinical interventions on several grant proposals; the purpose of which is to reach underserved and minority populations with effective, evidence-based health promotion programs. He brings a strong background in both clinical program development and research. His understanding of both research design and issues relating to implementation of both behavioral and technological interventions has added considerable depth and quality to the projects on which we are collaborating with Binks Health.

I worked in my previous role as Communications Director at the Obesity Society with Dr. Binks on various projects over the years and was very pleased with the level of service provided. Deadlines were always met with outstanding quality and the insights provided were invaluable in helping our organization to both define and subsequently meet our goals. Most recently we enlisted Binks Health as a consultant in developing a social media campaign for the organization which has been a very fruitful campaign for increasing our presence and exposure.

I have worked as a colleague of Dr. Binks when we were both at Duke University Medical Center for several years. More recently I have sought the best for my patients by engaging the services of Binks Health to provide behavioral health and psychological services (pre-surgical assessments, post-surgical follow-up, psychotherapy services, and program development) to patients at my new program New Hope Wellness and TOTAL Bariatric Care. I have found his professionalism, enthusiasm and passion for providing excellent service both to patients and our organization to be unwavering. He is truly one of the best mental health therapists I have worked with during the 21 years I have worked with bariatric surgery patients. Unlike many in the field, Dr. Binks provides tremendous and continuous support for his patients and accommodates their needs whether in person or by various forms of electronic assistance. His connectivity with his patients is admirable and uncommon in this day and age. It is a pleasure to work with Binks Health and Dr. Binks personally and I believe patients and health care professionals alike can trust his recommendations.

As a health editor, I’ve had the opportunity work with Dr. Binks on several occasions over the past few years. In 2006, I aided him in the development of content for The Duke Diet Online and the book The Duke Diet, and more recently he has written content on behavioral health for the consumer health magazine I currently edit. Dr. Binks is highly knowledgeable and empathetic about the real-world issues faced by people with obesity and other chronic health problems, and he is passionate about educating his audience with high-quality, trustworthy, and accessible information.
