ON OXYGEN WITH A 3 FOOT TANK AND EVEN THEN AFTER WAITING FOR OVER 2 HRS/ MY HUSBAND HAD TO GET A 2ND 3 FOOT TANK OUT OF THE TRUNK!!!--HE DID NOT CARE...I WAS A NATIONAL MERIT SCHOLAR AND WAS ACCEPTED TO BETTER SCHOOLS THAN HIM... ONLY FOUND OUT TODAY, HE IS RUNNING HIS OWN PRACTICE..LUCKLY I DID NOT HAVE BLUE LIPS, WAITING ON HIM..CANCELLED MY APPT. APROX 6:00 AM AND DARED HIM TO CHARGE ME A 35$ CO-PAY..WOULD NOT TRUST HIM AS A SURGEON, MIGHT HAVE BEEN BLIND...

He's good but arrogant, my time is just as valuable as his. I waited over an hour to get into the exam room and then waited another 20 minutes or more there. He left me in the room and said he would be right back, after 20 I went to the desk and asked where is he? Out of nowhere,he suddenly returns as if nothing was wrong. He may be good but has no bed side manners! P.S. If you're going to make people wait, have some current magazines.

He has always made me feel comfortable and safe with my eyes. He did my cataract surgery with complete expertise and confidence. I have recommended Dr. Winkler to many people and they are now seeing him for their eye care. Dr. Wiinkler is also doing cataract surgery on my husband at this time. I will continue to recommend him with confidence!
