I’m found him to be one of the best.

I love him he helped me l haven’t had any problems since my surgery l would recommend him to anyone.

Had a c5-c6 fusion done through the front of my neck after 2 years of dealing with a severe herniation. After waking in the hospital, I felt, as I can hardly describe now, the most amazing relief. Pain was at a minimum and recovery time was short (physical therapy and strictly following the doctors recommendations). It's been 4 years and I'm stronger than ever! Highly recommend him, great bedside manner and care.

Dr. Winkelpleck operated on my when I was 15 years old and I didn't have any problems until I developed arthritis in my lower back. I was fortunate that he was still practicing in my area. However, MSU is awful. My doctor's offices had so many issues getting a hold of them, and then so did my physical therapy team. The wait time is the worst... BUT Dr. Winkelpleck is worth the wait. He's really good and he cares.
in Holt, MI |
Did spinal fusion many years ago. There were complications due to no dr fault. He did everything he could for me and was very patient. All nurses had great respect for him.
in E Lansing mi |
Would never go to this office for additional procedures asst very rude and unhelpful Pre surgical appts never scheduled and calls not returned no followup re pain control post surgery doctor on vacation 1 week after surgery and unable to reach and asst rude as well as misinformation given no concern re patient comfort level while healing and dealing with painful post surgical difficulty Surgery itself went well but painful weeks following with insufficient meds was unacceptable
in Lansing, MI |
Very happy with the whole experience! Was extremely thorough and made sure the he knew exactly what the issues were and the safest way to deal with them. I always knew the what where and why, and I appreciated that. Wouldn't hesitate to have him take care of any other issues that may come up later on, for me or my family.
