He was condescending and arrogant. Interrupted me several times. No sign of a sense of humor. I asked him what I could do to prevent this from happening again. I had been wheezing for a month. His answer, "don't get sick."

Dr. Crawley was so knowledgeable and helpful when dad was in the hospital. She explained things in detail, sat down and spent probably 30 mins. asking about his history. I felt she really cared. She has both knowledge and empathy making her a wonderful provider.

As well as hematology. Every time I see Dr. Nanny he puts me at ease; never makes me feel like just another patient being pushed through the system.

Review for Dr. Nanney

Dr. Sobbing is one of those doctors that takes the time to listen. He is also very kind. While I was hospitalized he came by to check on me even though a different doctor was overseeing my care. I highly recommend!

Review for Dr. Sobbing

Super at diagnosing infection. First to do so in a decade of frustration. In final post surgical appointment, on reporting little improvement, told to just take an allergy pill. Felt like just another bull let out the chute. Never checked to see if it was gone. I know the answer.

I previously wore contacts and Dr. Winn tested my eyes until my eyes adjusted and measurements were perfect for the correct lens implant. I have gone from everything looking brownish to bright vibrant colors, like a new set of eyes. What a great gift of sight Dr. Winn has given me.
