I would not recommend Dr. Winkley. He claims to treat things like traumatic brain injuries, concussions, and post concussion disorder, when in fact he ONLY deals with the pain associated with these issues and brushes off the rest of your problems that relate to these problems.

He reduced my medicine from 150 mg down to 60 mg without gradually tapering me off the medicine. I do not feel comfortable getting behind the wheel of a vehicle, when I confronted Dr.Winkley all he could say is I am giving you what the FDA recommends for a patient with narcolepsy, yet he had no issues for 5 years prescribing two and one half times the recommend dosage for a patient with narcolepsy. It's not a issue for me as I have moved on to Florida. Beware of physicians like this .

Dr Winkley is the best doctor I've ever had! He correctly diagnosed me and placed me on the right treatment, which has now given me my life back. He also has the best bedside manner of any other Doctor out there . I am and will be forever grateful !
in Lexington, KY |
Medical records give values for assessments never completed. Several times I have visited this doctor and the exam did not involve any hands on procedures at all. When discussing my condition with the doctor, he repeatedly failed to listen to my medical history and in fact, errors were included in my medical record that would affect future treatment of my condition. If you care about comprehensive treatment of your neurological condition, this is one to avoid.
in Somerset, KY |
After being referred to Dr.Winkley he tried different medicine's with me after a seizure disorder for several months. He made a decision to inplant the vns device, this has been a life saver for me. I am still on medication, but I also now live a productive life.
