Dr Winchesler provided me the most thorough eye exam ive had in the 51 years ive been wearing qlasses , and took extra time to teach important eye health and related eye information in addition to answering all of rny questions . lve worked in healthcare as a registered nurse for over 25 years and cannot recommend her highly enough - plus her office is just down the street at sw 31st and capitol hill road in mult. village . she also worked seamlessly with my VSP vision ins. matt , r.n.

Was my first time seeing an opthomologist and I am very impressed with Dr. Winchester, she went over every step of my eye exam and how she documents ever detail to be able to compare my eyes if they where to change due to medication that could be toxic that I am on. Felt very comfortable through the whole process and will highly recommend her to any all my friends and family.

was seen in 2014 in Lake Oswego while she was filling my orignal doc. on medical leave.was not comfortable with her chair side manner. felt nervous and ignorant by her fast talk and seemingly unorganized manner. glad to find out she is not there any more when i made my biennial exam today.
