Amazing Dr! Was honored to have such a top notch Dr. take me out of A-fib. From the consultation to the procedure, everything ran like a fine tuned machine. His office, staff and Hospital have it dialed in on how to take care of a patient. Painless procedure, 1 night in the hospital and I feel like a new man! Would give 10 stars if an option! Drove 4 hours to see him and would go across country to see him!

As a consumer of medical services over a lifetime, and an attorney that has practiced in the medical malpractice arena for 30 plus years, I feel confident in assessing physicians' skills, practices and competence. I give Dr. Winkle five stars only because there aren't more stars to give. I saw Dr. Winkle one time for a procedure that usually takes 2 to 3 times to produce the desired result and typically has its own transitory complications. With Dr. Winkle it was 1 and done. Perfection!
