Patient Comments (23)

Dr. Winchell is the absolute worst doctor I have ever encountered. He injected my knee with cortisone. I've never had a cortisone shot before and didnt know it's a steroid. I am a diabetic. The cortisone made my blood sugar SKYROCKET to almost 800! I was almost in a diabetic coma. Before he...more

The surgery Dr. Winchell performed on me was in December of 2016; and it was Joint Fusion. Dr. Winchell put me at ease about the surgery because I was nervous about possible outcome relating to the appears of my hand and my level of movability. The surgery went exceedingly well. I now experience...more
