Patient Comments (6)
Completely detached from patients. Does nothing but take vitals and write scripts. Is completely unaware of current best practices and research. Is rude to patients and has no ability to engage in conversation regarding treatments, remedies, or new research. Other physicians in the endocrine field have noted many of their new patients come from this practice and they have nothing positive to say about Wininger. Highly recommend seeking other doctors.

Staff are unprofessional and rude

Dr. Wininger and his staff were very compassionate with my Mom who was a patient of his. We never had to wait long in the waiting room or in the exam room. He treated my Mom much, much better than her previous endocrinologist. When my Mom died, he and his office were the only medical group who sent a card...that says something to me ?

Horrible attitude. All this office cares about is making money on your visits. When first visiting this doctor i was given about 15 minutes which included general questions and well known suggestions about diabetes which I have had for over 30 years. Then Dr Winninger tried selling me a pump I didn't want and was visibly upset when I asked for a different brand. Now, they denied me a prescription because I did not visit the office frequent enough. Shame.

This guys is about as bland as wallpaper. Hours are horrible. Office looks old and dated. Over 3 years seeing him never has he been up to speed on diabetic technology including CGM's. Scheduling an appointment is a hassle and the staff is nasty. Haven't been there in awhile and need a refill? Well too bad the doctor will deny your insulin refill until you come in and he makes his money. I was told by the staff "there's nothing I can do" while preparing for a large last minute trip.

Will never recommend this practice. They are out right unfriendly and mean. I was running late in the rain with a newborn baby. I told them I would be 10 minutes late. They said ok. I came in, they took me in to do the initialsame like BP and weight. Then they told me to wait in the waiting room again. After 20 minutes they told me I have to wait for at least an hour and a half until ALL the patients are seenot because I came late. DON'T USE THIS GROUP! There are nicer professionals than them!
