Patient Comments (14)
I am very pleased with Dr. Van Winkle, his level of expertise, and the care and guidance he has provided me.
in Hartford, WI |
I have never met a Dr. So understanding of a patient. Even though there were risks involved he made me totally understand and let me make the final choice. I think he is great.
in Menomonee Falls, WI |
Dr. Van Winkle is one of the most caring, compassionate, and patient doctors I've ever known. His manner is one of being upbeat and engaging at all times. I have never had the occasion to see him otherwise. He is indeed a kind and gentle individual who takes his patients' needs to heart, often taking extra time to answer questions and calm nerves when need be. I would highly recommend him to anyone requiring services of an orthopedic surgeon.

Dr van winkle is extremely well experienced confident and honest. I got everything I needed from him. He took time with me. He has a great support staff too. Important since they worked with me a lot too.

My total knee replacement was amazingly simple to recover from. I had watched others and expected much more pain and discomfort. Instead my range of motion is much better just two weeks out and little pain. I attribute much of this to Dr. Van Winkle and his choices in using skin glue, the actual implant and such. He stopped in every day to check on me and has been keeping tabs via health loop so that any concerns or questions could be quickly addressed. Very happy!

I have seen Dr. Van Winkle for years. I will be vary sad when he retires. Thanks for being a great Dr. and a good friend. Joyce Winter

He explained everything to my satisfaction. Dr. Van Winkle and his staff set up a plan for me to rehab on my own and one week and two days after my total hip replacement I am walking 1/2 mile twice per day with my 4 wheeled walker on my dead end road. The pain is bearable, and I do all of the exercises that were given to me. I spent only one day in the hospital.

Dr. Van Winkle has helped me through both knee (ACL) and Hip replacement surgeries. He is always straight forward, discussed options, and what is best for you.

Jackson, WI |
I cant say enough about Dr VanWinkle and his team. I have received exceptional care since my journey began. He explains things in a way that the patient understands. I never felt rushed. I woulds recommend Dr VanWinkle and his team to anyone who needs orthopedic care.
in Muskego, WI |
The whole process was very informative.
in Waukesha, WI |
He is the best. He gave me the best xmas present telling me he would do my hip. In an industry where surgeons cherry pick with no regard for the patients quality of life he is the shining star for those in pain making people's quality of life great again. I'm eternally greatful to him and thankful that a friend recommended him. Thanks Doc!!!
Cedarburg, WI |
Dr. Van Winkle's level of expertise helped me feel confident in moving forward with my procedure. He answered all questions in a clear and concise manner which I find avoids confusion. Again, my confidence in his expertise is the most reassuring reason for choosing him and I am glad he performed my surgery.
