Dr. Winegarden

"If I could give this doctor zero stars, I would. When a close relative of mine decided to change doctors, Dr. Winegarden failed/refused to send a copy of the medication schedule to the new doctor (per the new doctor). As a result, my relative suffered ill health effects. He sided with my relative's spouse, who is a control freak, and interfered with prescribed care (PCA) from other doctors. Why? According to the control freak, Dr. Winegarden likes the spouse more than the patient."

"If I could rate him zero stars I would. He was extremely arrogant and rude during the entire appointment. Only cared about his view point and never let me voice my concerns or opinions in my health. Kept talking over me. Overall, complete waste of time."

Saw this doctor six times: shortest wait was 15 minutes and that happened ONCE. All other visits waited AT LEAST 1.5-2.5 HOURS for this megalomaniac, God-complex doctor to grace me with his presence. Talk about arrogant? Yep, this is him. His front desk staff is uber rude--takes their lessons from him. Don't waste your time with this guy; I mean you'll really be wasting A LOT of time waiting. Doesn't believe in Benzodiazepines either. Really?!?! Ever heard of anxiety, doc? Med for FEAR? Quack!
