Dr. Winder is one of those rare doctors you come across willing to listen and explain things so that you can understand and give you options, he doesn't like to rush surgery. "He" gave me injections in both my knees he took great care with the procedure to insure that the injections were in the proper location to stop my pain. The reason I mention this is I've had injections before and once the injections ended up causing me more pain after a couple of weeks of receiving them, the injections were not performed by the doctor. The next morning after seeing Dr. Winder was the first time in years that I was able to wake up and walk without pain or grab furniture to steady myself. My only regret is why did I wait so long.

Excellent. First visit was a delight at checkin. His staff was on point with setting me up before doctor came in. Dr Winder was professional and knowledgeable. He listened to my concerns and suggested a few options which I appreciated. The shot in my hip wasn’t so bad either! Great bedside manners. Thank you!

Office staff friendly. Dr. Winder is very kind, great bedside manner. I was nervous getting a cortisone shot in my knee, the nurse was very caring and gentle. I’ll definitely be switching orthopedic doctors for my husband to also see Dr. Winder.

A very nice experience from making the initial appointment to meeting with the Doctor. Dr. Winder was well prepared by reviewing my case history in advance and explained my present situation in an easy understandable manner. I was administered an injection that very day and seem to be on the road to recovery.
