Severe ear wax build up. Almost total loss of hearing. The Doctor was careful and explained the procedures. Asked several times during the procedure whether I was OK. Was treated respectfully and professionally. Was out the door in 45 minutes hearing again.

We had an outstanding experience with Dr. Winkler, involving a surgical procedure for my teenage son. Dr. Winkler explained the issue and the solution clearly and then made special efforts (through his excellent and personable assistant Wanda) to schedule the procedure so that it would not interfere with school. After the procedure, Dr. Winkler checked in with us regularly, even over a weekend, to make sure the recovery was going well and to answer any questions we had.

I had a great experience with Dr. Winkler. I had a nasal septal reconstruction and Dr. Winkler was very thorough in explaining the details of the surgery. I requested the surgery with short notice and Dr. Winkler was able to set up the surgery within two days. Dr. Winkler was also very attentive in my recovery process communicating with me through text to make sure I was doing well. Surgery was quick with minimal pain afterwards. I am very satisfied with Dr. Winkler's work and I highly recommend.

I saw Dr. Winkler for the first time today. He was recommended to me by my internist. Not only was I able to get an appointment on the same day that I called (it was an urgent matter to me), but Wanda, who made my appointment, set aside extra time for a hearing test with one of the audiologists . . . just in case. Dr. Winkler is an excellent listener and explains things very well. Maria, the audiologist, is professional and kind. I highly recommend this practice.

I has a turbonet reduction and my deviated septum repaired. Dr. Winkler explained the surgery and told me that with a 7:30 am time, I'd be home by about noon--and I was home before that! I was afraid of surgery and he took extra time drawing diagrams and going over the timeline in great detail. I was so surprised that after a week I could breathe so much better, and was back to walking and most activities. After a month, I was on a plane to Florida, and onto a cruise.

Who is an ideal doctor? One who cares about your personal-individual health as much as you do, and who has the skills and knowledge to help you get healthy regardless of where you start. Dr Winkler is such a doctor. He listens well, grasps all the nuances of your unique medical situation, explains the treatment plan clearly, & follows through. I just saw him for what I hope is my last appointment (I feel cured!), but part of me will miss having a chance to experience such excellence in medicine.

Dr. Winkler gave our family outstanding surgical and post-operative care. His medical care and the level of communication with our family was extraordinary. Coming from Canada, we have never before experienced this level of care and communication from a surgeon and the team. He followed up with our family on our children's recovery in every possible way: in person; by phone; and, by text to check in with us regularly and answer any follow up questions.

Dr. Winkler is extremely nice and competent. He made me comfortable from the initial visit all the way through the surgery follow-up. The surgery went extremely well and the recovery was easy. Both Dr. Winkler and his staff are extremely professional and courteous. He has my highest recommendation.

Dr Winkler was reassuring, attentive, respectful and kind. He always patiently listened to what I had to say and gave me a thorough medical explanation - something which I greatly appreciate being generally a bit of skeptic of doctors and a bit of a hypochondriac. I had a deviated nose septum surgery and it's literally been a breath of fresh air ever since. Definitely recommend!
