I Honestly could not give Dr. Winter a higher recommendation. I would definitely recommend him to anyone. He was recommended to me by a friend who had had great results with him. I saw him for problems I have had with my shoulder for years. I am so happy I did, he is an amazing physician. My shoulder is finally better! He listened to my problems intently, explained my problem and his treatment plan and helped me tremendously. He is an excellent physician. He is kind, and cares about his patients

Was experiencing shoulder pain. Sought out Dr Winter based on loca recommendations. He was able to see me in a very short period of time. During my initial visit, he spent an ample amount of time examining my shoulder and all was very thorough in explaining his approach to find a solution. Dr Winter is an excellent doctor and someone that I can trust. He successfully solved my shoulder problem. I found his staff to very helpful and courteous. I would highly recommend Dr Winter.

Misdiagnosed by this provider and he offered me absolutely no treatment for my issues. His staff is horrible. Took three attempts to get them to fax the MRI orders faxed to the provider. Took two attempts to get them to send the referral orders to another ortho. Said they called in a prescription for me and after 3 follow up emails, it still wasn't sent to the pharmacy. I gave up and went to a different provider.

Dr Winter has been my Orthopedic surgeon for over a year. I had knee surgery and he was excellent. My other knee is bad but has given me options that has worked. His office is caring and helpful. Dr. Winter is one of the best Orthopedic surgeons I would highly recommend.

A good surgeon, however he fails to pass needed information to his staff. His staff fails to follow up on phoning patients.
