What People Say About Dr. Kristen Winters, DPM
RecentMost Helpful

I recently had combined bunion and hammer toe surgery on my right foot by Dr. Winters. I am happy to say that the entire experience could not have been any better! It was a pleasure to interact with Dr. Winters. She accurately diagnosed my condition and fully explained the treatment, as well as what to expect in recovery. I am grateful for her knowledge and surgical skill. There was virtually no pain involved with the surgery and my incisions are barely visible. Most importantly, she expertly corrected my foot condition and I am free of the daily pain I had prior to surgery. Thank you Dr. Winters!

Dr. Winters did a fantastic job on my foot. I had to have a joint replacement in my big toe. It's been six weeks since my surgery and my foot feels and looks great. The surgery was easy. Dr. Winters did such a great job closing up my wound that you can hardly see the scar. I am very grateful to have had this procedure done by Dr. Winters and highly recommend her. You will also be satisfied.

Dr. Winters operated on a bunion I had on my right foot. The whole experience was great! I had virtually no pain after my surgery and I am so glad that I had it done. I feel great and can finally walk pain free. Dr. Winters was fabulous every step of the way. She explained everything that was going to happen at each stage and answered every question I had thoroughly, making sure I was comfortable with my decisions. I would highly recommend her and her office.

I can't stress enough how kind, caring, knowledgeable and patient Dr. Winters has been with me. She is fantastic! I had suffered from planters fasciitis on my left foot for about 9 months. It just kept getting worse (tried PT and Cortisone shots) The shock wave therapy is the only way to go! This was remarkable. Prior to this treatment I could barely put any pressure on my heel without wincing. I wore the boot to bed & on long trips. I did 6 shock wave treatments and I am now pain free.

Beyond excellent! I can’t rave enough about Dr. Winters. After reading and hearing countless stories about the pain and incapacitation of bunion surgery, I fully expected, at minimum, some barely tolerable discomfort. She calmly explained that I would do well with the surgery; that she does this procedure because she knows it has a good outcome. And guess what? I had ZERO pain-didn’t even need the pain meds, and was back at my desk job after 2 weeks. She is truly amazing. Highly recommend!!

Dr Winters was great. I had a fibroma on the bottom of my foot and Dr Winters exhausted all non-surgical options before having to remove via surgery. I had surgery at the Johnson Memorial surgery center and had a positive experience with the staff there as well. Dr Winters bedside manner the day of surgery was reassuring to both me and my husband. Aftercare was clearly explained and Dr Winters called me that evening to check in on me. I would highly recommend Dr Winters and her team.
