I want to thank Dr. Winegardner for her progressive and forward thinking on women’s overall health. Every other doctor I went to just wanted to fix the immediate problem but she tried and succeeded in figuring out my issues. I thought the symptoms I experienced were a part of aging and being post-menopausal and something I would have to live with but the information on BioTe Pellets in her waiting room changed my life. I felt compelled to try it hoping it would add to the quality of my life

Dr Winegardner is an exceptional provider, easy to talk to, knowledgeable and very accommodating with varied work schedules. I chose her office years ago due to the ease of appointments and the size of her practice. I discovered, along the way, she can also work with patients who do not have insurance and need a cash payment process. I recently had to find a new family physician due to job and physical demands but I will always recommend Dr Winegardner to others without hesitation!

I am also a practitioner (of the furry kind) aka a Veterinarian- we found Dr Weingardner when we moved to the area 10 yrs ago. We were looking for a family doctor that was not a part of the corporate conglomerate that we have in charlotte ! Dr. Weingardner has delivered nothing but the highest quality medicine and customer service since she became our doc. Our extendeed family, friends,neighbors,and even my employees are now patients of hers. A small private practice with high quality medicine!

Been with Dr. Linda for about 15 yrs. Never have I had any difficulty getting an appt due to sudden illness. I appreciate the fact that Dr. Linda is an independent provider as this provides her the flexibility to spend the time needed to determine my health issues. I have a multi-dimensional chronic immune disorder and have "kicked the specialists to the curb" over the years as the quality of care does not meet what I receive from Dr. Linda. She is very conscientious on monitoring meds.

Very caring doctor and staff. Easy to schedule appointments the same day if needed, communication about labs, test results, etc. is excellent. Have never been happier with any other dr as I am with this practice.

Our family of 4 have been patients of Dr. Winegardner since 2003. The expert staff, knowledgable care from Dr. W and the personal touch and care are nothing short of outstanding. Although the children have grown and we have all moved onto other areas in our lives, the entire office staff, including the Dr. are like part of our extended family. I HIGHLY recommend Family Healthcare of Lake Norman for anything from the sniffles to manopause and everything in between. Patty Kasper

Very satisfied for over 8yrs...very family-like ambience, personable, feels cares about het patients, great office staff!! Same day appts...no long wait times. Willing to listen. No drive-thru feel like some medical practices. Only reason stopped going is because military insurance guidelines changed due to Affordable Health Care Act. Nothing to do with Dr Winegardners practice, not their fault, but the new guidelines for military folk like me were not what I wanted to deal with anymore

Awesome staff, kind, professional and thorough...cannot say enough good things about Doc Winegardner. No nonsense professional who knows her stuff! Our family has been treated for the most basic to the most severe and at all times we have only become healthy because of her treatments. The staff is friendly and professional at all times, they become more than just an assistant or staff, they know you by your first name are truly interested in your health and well being. Best care any where!

I have been a patient of Dr. Windgardner for almost 10 years. What a relief to know that no matter when or why I need her she or her capable nurse practitioners are available and accommodating. Dr. Winegardner's practice offers first class medical care that is the same or better than the hospital based practices that dominate the Charlotte region. I refuse to be on an assembly line in a screaming crowded waiting room. Nor do I want to pay for granite, upholstery, big screen TV's!!

Personable, attentive, and competent. Dr. Winegardner practices medicine in the Spirit of family medicine that is not trapped within the box of corporate medicine today. It is refreshing to know the entire staff and to have a personal relationship with them so that when I call they know my name and something about me. For more than 15 years, my wife and I have benefited from the service of this family practice.
