DR Winikates is okay, but when you call to get a refill or schedule anything, his assistant won't answer the phone or return your call until you call at least 3 times or call main office and explain to them what is going on.

There aren't very many neurologists in town, and so I would recommend this doctor only if someone was unwilling to go to the Indianapolis area. I waited two months to see him, and an hour in the exam room. He was dismissive, aloof and did not show empathy. I won't be back. I really like his staff, so it's a shame.

Excellent Doctor, very happy and would recommend him to everyone who needs a doctor that listens and explains the issues you are dealing with.
