Traveling from out of town, experiencing eye issues. Prompt professional! Very satisfied
in Apache Junction, AZ |
Wonderful experience with cataract surgery performed by Dr. Winkler. He is a warm and caring physician.
in Gilbert, AZ |
What a superb physician, he provided me with several options, explained the options, then help me find the best one. His performance in the operating room was second to none...it's really good to be able to see out of my right eye again. He the kind of Dr that I would want my mom to go to. What a superb Dr. I would recommend Dr. Winkler to my best friend.
in Gilbert, AZ |
This was the worst appointment I've ever had with a doctor. He was overbearing and berating and wouldn't let me speak when I tried to explain the reason for my visit. At one point I finally had to tell him to back off from attacking me verbally. I truly just wanted to get up and walk out of the appointment, but I had been waiting for over two weeks to see him. What a waste of time that was. Horrible bedside manner, not compassionate at all and over all very unprofessional.
