I have never had a surgeon call to check on me on a weekend. I had my surgery Friday morning, and Dr. Winchell called Saturday. I was able to stand on my right knee the day of surgery, and walk on it the next. He did the left knee two months later. and even though the left knee was worse I was still able to put weight on it the same day, and walk the next day. I was in for follow up and asked for physical therapy, and the hospital's physical therapy department called the same day. Great Doc.

I do not recommend this doctor! I came in frustrated because I didn't have been dealing with chronic knee and hip pain. He did n or listen to my issues. A week later to request y doctors notes and x-rays. His staff said they would call later on that day . It's been 72 hours and no call. Oh and my hips and knees still hurt everyday. Go to a doctor that will listen !

Dr Winchell acts like he cares to the day of the surgery he knew I had anxiety about the hospital he forced me to stay overnight and he didn't approve me for my regular meds he forgot to write it down on my surgical notes.the knee is messed up again he wont touch me again

Dr. Winchell listened to me when no one else would about my knee. He takes his time with his patients as well as being honest with them. He does try to rule out everything before putting you on the operating table. He is caring and honest.

I have been trying to get someone to answer the phone at that office for a couple of weeks without success. Calls always roll over to voice mail and messages are not returned.

My husband and I recently relocated to Savannah and have been really struggling to find good physicians. My experience with another local orthopedic group took month wait for an evaluation and another month wait for simple surgery. As a RN with 30yrs experience I can honestly say my surgeon was great but the practice was nothing short of a meat market! I recently hurt my knee and wait time for an appointment with the same group was 8wks. I called Dr Wenchell's office and they saw me IN 3 DAYS!!

I was introduced to Dr.Mitchell, through my daughter, who had cracked the bones in her ankle. For many years, I suffered with painful knee issues, arthritis, bone on bone! After seeing my daughter's results, I was a believer! Dr.Mitchell did my total knee replacement, For the first time in years, I can bowl and take a long walks! It's a Family Affair my grandchildren and my husband, whose a Retired Veteran are patients of Dr. Mark Winchell!
There's not enough words to describe how much I despise this man. He's rude and has a god complex. Thanks to him for misdiagnosing my injury and not telling me surgery was a necessity my foot is deformed for the rest of my life. After a second opinion I was told I should have been operated on with the first 24 hours of my injury. Winchell wanted to do 6-8 weels in a boot. Which I did unfortunately. Ended up having a major foot surgery which will take about a year to get back some what normal.

This doctor's office is the poorest run one I have ever come across in my 50+ years!! They don't ever answer the phone, you must leave a message after an interminably long voice recording, and then they only answer your message 1/10th of the time, if that. The doctor is not hygienic in his office and I ended up with an infection. He is caring until he does the procedure, then uncaring. I was sent to collections when I do not owe him and the excuse from the office was it was a billing error.

Received a total knee replacement from Dr. Winchell in January. Great service and treatment received, was up and walking without assistance in approximately 3 1/2 weeks. Would highly recommend Dr. Winchell.
in Savannah, GA |
Office staff is rude, incompetent, and immature. Dr. Winchell seems smart, but is obviously lacking in management and people skills. Between staff problems and him, I didn't feel comfortable, safe, or trusting of this practice.
