I saw dr Winkler and he was great at first. I got sick and couldnt keep anything down. I managed to keep one of my pills down the day before but he said there was no meds in my system. I had a test done that showed I metabolized meds differently. I got the dismissal letter the day my dad died so I didnt fight it

I had my first visit with Dr Winikur a week ago and everything about the visit was wonderful and exceeded my expectations. The staff was professional but very friendly, Dr Winikur's nurse Nat has great people skills, and Dr Winikur is a wonderful listener who gave me all my options, clearly explained, with respect paid to my concerns. He wanted to know what had worked for me in the past, and what had NOT worked, and we came up with a treatment plan that was clearly laid out and explained in great detail. I can't fault any aspect of my visit that day, and I look forward to subsequent treatments with him.

I liked Dr Winikur from the first day I saw him. He makes you feel comfortable and easy to talk to. He answers questions and he doesn't hesitate to let you know you will not have another chance if you do not take your meds as prescribed. He works hard to help you and for that I am grateful. Thank you for all you do.

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.

Unsatisfactory Service in Martinsville, VA – May 10, 2016

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.
