Very poor breast cancer surgeon!!!
Des Plaines, IL |
I would highly recommend Dr. Winchester. He is highly professional and, at the same time, has that great bedside manner. Took his time to explain everything to me until I was sure I understood what he was explaining and never showed any sign of impatience. Checked on me after surgery a couple times, even though it was day surgery.

Dr. Winchester saved my life and put me back on the road to good health. He ordered an MRI and found massive disease that was not visible through the mammogram, thus saving me a second surgery by going directly to mastectomy. As an obese woman facing lymph node dissection, I was almost doomed to a swollen arm--his skill gave me a normal arm with full range of motion. He achieved clean margins despite massive tumor. He is a godsend to cancer patients.
