Great initial visit and follow up surgery with Dr. Winder at the Desert Orthopaedic Center. Dr. Winder answered all my questions regarding my injury and options to fix. He is professional, very knowledgeable, and courteous. The office staff also was professional, helpful and courteous. For surgery, the nurses, PAs, anesthesiologist all were professional and courteous, detailing everything that was going to be done and what I needed to do post surgery. There isn't one aspect that I had an issue with.

I like the fact that I was able to get my scan of my knee in the clinic instead of going elsewhere. He was very knowledgeable and assured me that I would get relief for my pain in my knee and not have to do surgery.

Dr. Winder is a 5 star doctor. He has a great personality and a very professional approach. He conducted a thorough exam on my injury addressing all my issues, taking his time and explaining them. Best of all, he did not recommend surgery for my injury and I am saying this because I had seen previously two "specialists" that said that surgery was the only option to cure my condition. I would highly recommend Dr. Winder to anyone that has suffered a sports injury.

1. Dr Winder cares about his patients and is willing to take all the time necessary to put me at ease and answer all of the questions that I had. 2. His staff is aware of what he wants and needs to do his job well. They also take the time needed to put everything needed for the doctor in place so the appointment is comfortable and all of my questions and concerns were answered and addressed. 3. Finally, I feel Dr Winder is going to fix my shoulder and I am going to get my mobility back and will eventually be pain free following what is a very painful injury. 4. By the time I was walking out of his office I felt he was the right doctor to fix me and he is a nice guy and he understands his patients have questions and need him to take the time to address all of our questions and concerns. 5. Like most of all of DOC’s doctors he seems like a nice guy and extremely competent. 6. I have no reservations about letting him do my surgery.

Dr. Winder was incredible as was the entire staff. Professional, courteous and safe. Only reason I didn't give 5 stars was that I waited in the exam room for an hour for the Dr to come see me. But once he did he helped resolve my issue very quickly
