Recently I was in need of finding a neurologist for a debilitating, painful neurological disorder. While researching on the Internet, I read of Dr. Wingkun's impressive medical credentials, wealth of knowledge and experiences for treating Neurology and Neurophysiology related issues. Dr. Wingkun was kind and patient with me, as I discussed my neurological challenges. We both worked together, which pleased me, in choosing my appropriate treatment plan. I trust Dr. Wingkun's guidance.

If you’re in Palm Beach County looking for an awesome neurologist, Dr. Edwin C. Wingkun in my opinion, (hands off) is the best doctor. I’ve been a patient for over five years, Dr. Wingkun was able to locate the cause of my pain when few was unable to do so. I’ve been blessed to have such a personable, detail oriented, caring, extremely intelligent physician that looks out for my best interest. Doldron Family!

When all hope was gone for seizure control and surgery was the next step Dr. Wingkun found a combination of medicine that I could tolerate and that controlled the seizures. He is a kind and considerate Dr. who listens to his patients and takes the time to answer any questions. I never leave his office with any questions or concerns.

Dr Wingkun is a caring Doctor, he takes the time to listen to your issues, asks about how family is doing and doesnt seem to rush you out of the office. When it comes to prescription refills, I just email him and he gets back to me within 24 hours. I highly reccomend Dr. Wingkun.

Quite simply put, Dr. Wingkun saved my life. I had a golf ball sized malignant brain tumor. After seeing the MRI, he called Dr. Komotar in Miami and spoke with him personally stressing the urgency of my case. As a result I had the tumor removed in 4 days. If Dr. Wingkun had not made the call to Dr. Komotar, we never would have known who to contact and we would have been fatally lost in the system. Words are inadequate to express our great appreciation for Dr. Wingkun's efforts on my behalf.
