What People Say About Dr. Janet Winikoff, MD
Reply
Not a very helpful doctor. I have been feeling nerve pain and tingling which can be related to auto immune thyroid disease and she told me I was probably breathing too heavily. She didn't even suggest seeing a neurologist. She doesnt think out of the box to try and help patients.

Very condescending and the type of doctor who would list blood results without explaining what they meant. No bedside (or any side of) manners. If you want a caring doctor, don't see Dr. Winikoff!
