Dr. Jay has been a blessing to me and my family. I saw many doctors before him but my insurance changed and that's how I found him. I am so lucky! He's the first psychiatrist who takes the time to really listen to me and help me. I know he truly cares about me and I am so very grateful for his help. He always spends as much time as I need and I never feel like I'm just a number to him. SO glad my insurance changed and I found him!!

Dr. Winston was very rarely on schedule, despite appointments being set up 1-3 months in advance. During one visit, Dr. Winston allowed a representative from a pharmaceutical company into the office to chat about The Packers , taking up about 30 minutes of my appointment. On another occasion he spent the entire visit telling me that he'd diagnosed Brett Favre with ADHD. When I presented with a crisis, he wasn't responsive asking me which medications I would like to try rather than proper care.
