Dr. Winkler is a wonderful, caring doctor. Unfortunately, he is surrounded by people who have no concern for his practice or his reputation. As an example, I had a question left after visiting with him in person in Flagstaff (he had walked out and the appointment was over). So I asked the nurse to please get me the answer to the question (simple -- whether I could take a certain medicine along with my heart condition). I didn't feel comfortable based on past experiences with the support staff, so I even wrote the question down on one of my business cards and asked her to get it to Dr. Winkler. Weeks and weeks went by, no response. Tried to get the answer via phone message and so on -- never replied. I had to change doctors because of how nasty and unhelpful the staff is that supports Dr. Winkler. If you're prepared for that, perhaps the quality of care you'll get from Dr. Winkler will offset it. But in my case, since I can never reach him and get questions answered, I dropped this doc.

Dr. Winkler was my cardiologist when I lived in Flagstaff. I've had several cardiologists over my lifetime and he was in a league of excellence of his own. Calming, factual, supportive, engaging. Great doctor.
