Patient Comments (1)
New York, NY |
This is the best doctor I have ever come in contact with. Over a year after performing my bowel obstruction surgery, Dr. Winchell continues to provide excellent care to me and continues to always be there for me whenever I need a check up. He is a true gentleman and the absolute ideal of a knowledgable, respectful, capable, and kind doctor. I cannot thank Dr. Winchell enough for his unwavering support as I have struggled with adhesion pain since the surgery. I can't recommend Dr. Winchell enough
