Dr Winikur is awesome. He's thorough, answers questions, is respectful & attentive to my needs and concerns. He also makes me laugh, and when you have chronic pain, it's always a pleasure to have a doctor who cares enough to put a smile on your face when you're in pain.

Dr. Winiker is an awesome doctor. He listens to what I have to say about what's going on with my pain and what's going on in my life which means so much to me. He is a very compassionate doctor who is also a very concerned doctor about his patients. Thank you Dr. Winiker for allowing me to be one of your patients.

Very poor client service from receptionist/ medical assistant. She had an attitude because I was asking questions about the type of care they provide. I ended up leaving the office without seeing the doctor. You don't have to settle for anything, there are plenty more places that offer better client satisfaction.

I was in a car accident in 2007. Dr.Winikur was awesome in my insurance hearing. He explained my health and pain issues so well I won my case. He has since then been very professional and kind to me as I seek treatment to try and keep working with my back injury rather than seeking disability. I have back, leg, and hip pain every day and his care has enabled me to continue working as a nurse. You are truly blessed if he is your doctor.

My experience with Dr. Winikur has been wonderful. For the past 7 yrs. he has been an excellent doctor. He is caring, compassionate, and concerned about my condition. He has a great sense of humor, which is very refreshing, especially when I go to see him and am in a lot of pain. I would highly recommend his services to anyone.
