Not only did Dr Winters (not one of his staff) call me with my MRI results, he called on Sunday, during a holiday weekend. I am beyond impressed, especially after having to wait almost a month for my previous MRI results from another providers office.

Dr. Winters is an amazing man and a wonderful Dr. His staff is also truly exceptional. In the last 2 years I have had several appointments and 3 surgeries. Spent many visits in his office crying and screaming from pain. His staff was always helpful and patient with me and he was so sympathetic and kind. Thanks to him I am walking, sitting and standing with minimal pain. I would recommend him to anyone with back, neck, or spinal problems.

Quite simply one of the best neurosurgeons in the region. Dr. Winters is a gifted surgeon who restored my quality of life to something I hadn't seen since I was in my early 20's. He is a gift to Northern Utah!

I have had back surgery and neck surgery by Doc. Winters, both were successful, giving me a much better quality of life then what I would have had otherwise .I recommended him to my son only because I have such total confidence in him. I have also recommended him to my friends knowing they would get the very best care. Doc. Winters is always completely honest in his assessment of what he can or cannot do to help with any condition I have asked him about, I really appreciate that.
