    I also always wait a very long time for my appointments. My issue is with the billing department. After a breast biopsy I was charged with $370 plus my co-pay. I was told that's the portion my insurance did not covered. I checked my insurance and discovered that procedure was covered and they paid them in full. I called the billing office immediately and left her many messages for 5 months! She has never calls me back. I'm still waiting to be reimbursed!!! I just contacted the Attorney General!

    I would not recommend not just Dr. Winchester, but any Doctor who's back office looks like a tornado hit it! You are guaranteed to have a 1-2 hour wait in the very small waiting area. The nurse staff, although they were very nice, they all looked like they needed a vacation. Dr. Winchester did not perform the procedure.Through the entire procedure, the staff made un-nerving comments, like oh dear goodness gracious, ewww! Did not make me feel comfortable at all! I had a biopsy.

    She missed a cyst shown to be suspicious on my breast and lacerated a wrong spot. I returned to her office to repeat the same procedure within a few minutes and was told it would be in 5 days. I was given another appointment. I worried for 5 days. This visit was the most painful procedure I have ever endured... Biopsy taken. Face down on table, breast pulled thru hole, feet and hands clamped down. No numbing! A machine which sounded like a wooden drill took the sample. Pain! I changed doc!!!

    Why Does Experience Matter?

    Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
