Its funny that people on here write about Dr. Winter not taking time with him. He spent over an hour with my son which might equal the amount of time ALL DOCTORS have spent with him total. He looks us in the face (instead of burying his head into a computer like other doctors). He was friendly,...more

Arrogant. Dismissive and simply bored. He couldn't care less about a word I shared regarding my concerns. He wanted to quickly label me and get me out. Extremely disappointing. It's all about him, not the patient in need.

In my opinion, the visit to Dr. Winter was a waste of my time. The doctor never listened to me & had formed his opinion before I entered the door. "Everyone Sleeps" may be true but if they're not getting adequate sleep, you go see a doctor. Save your self some trouble and skip seeing this one....more

Dr. Winter refused to let me complete a single sentence. He "knew" exactly what was wrong before he even opened the door. I've never had a physician so rude. He may be fine with standard sleep apnea health conditions, but outside that I would go somewhere else.

I'm sorry you did not have a positive experience during our meeting. I think it can be difficult to hear honest opinions others have about us when they differ from how we see ourselves. When an individual tells me they "cannot sleep", I'm going to disagree with them; everyone sleeps. I'm sorry if that bluntness was not your cup of tea. Fortunately there are many excellent sleep specialists around. Best of luck in finding one who has the particular set of answers you seek.
