Dr. Winston provided care for my family member in a critical situation in the ER at St. Peter's Hospital. His accurate diagnosis, confident manner, and thoughtful explanations helped us make difficult decisions. If I ever need any heart or vascular procedures in his field, I would want Dr. Winston to be the surgeon. We are very grateful for his presence and expertise.

Kind, caring. Full confidence in the care he provides. He took the time to explain everything, then had the patience to explain it again when my family had questions.

I did not have the opportunity to meet Dr. Winston prior to my procedure. He took the time immediately prior to the procedure to explain in detail what was going to happen, and he was very patient answering our many questions. The results of the procedure were not what we had hoped for. Dr. Winston took the time to meet with my spouse immediately after the procedure, and he took the time to walk back to my area with my spouse to speak with me again.

Trust your gut when you are uncomfortable with a Dr!!!!!! I didn't...... If these comments help just one person, then this is worth it. He needs work on his coarse demeanor, his hurried responses regarding giving a diagnosis and his egotistical attitude. 6 months later and my calf is still hurting. I have an appointment with another cardio/interventionist. Praise GOD! ! !

Had a catherization done by Dr Winston on 12/08/16. I found Dr. Winston to be arrogant, impatient, rude and condescending. He may be a fabulous interventionist, but his people skills are sub standard. Probably a good thing his patients are under anesthesia. My family had to request for him to come out to advise them how the procedure went. Not a doctor I want to have in charge of my cardiac condition. Perhaps age and experience will temper his attitude.

He was too quick to schedule an unnecessary medical procedure and was upset when we wanted to stay with our vascular physician for the vascular issues. We have switched to another cardiologist.
