As someone in the field, the doctor and his team were exceptional! They continue to be a support system and I would recommend them over and over again. I went to the doctor for a second opinion and knew immediately that he was the right doctor for me. From the office to the hospital he has built an amazing team.

Jean-Paul Wolinsky is an outstanding physician and neurosurgeon, who is a distinct credit to the medical profession and Northwestern Medicine. While possessing great surgical skill for very challenging spinal surgical procedures, he is most notable for his thoughtful patient discussions and explanations, which allow him to demonstrate his kindness, consideration and significant modesty. He is quite simply--- always quietly reassuring in his demeanor.

Dr. Wolinsky is a very kind and caring doctor who takes the time to answer questions and addresses his patients’ concerns. He has surrounded himself with an excellent and dedicated staff. His daily check in health loop proved to be a very valuable tool in managing both my pre-op and post-op status.
