Dr Winters experience and another doctor's recommendation lead me to make an appointment with him. That was seven years ago. My life is much better since that appointment. His knowledge of medications and conservative approach to prescripting them have keep me coming back.

The doctor has experience, but barely speaks and is not helpful at all. He would frequently answer his cell phone in the middle of a session or get up and meet a patient in the foyer to give them a prescription or picking up medicine. He is quick to get his copay and it seems to be his only concern. Not going back to this doctor.

Amazing..from the first visit until the last one. Professional, attentive and a true artist. His work is phenomenal and I am an example :)
