This is a repeat treatment from Dr Windle after breast cancer surgeries over 20 years ago. I wouldn’t go anywhere else and was relieved to find him still in Lincoln in practice! He’s a blessing to me and a top professional in his field I appreciate his kindness and empathy with me and taking extra time to answer every question.
