Patient Comments (2)
Sioux City, IA |
Due to an insurance change, I was no longer covered for my previous care provider. I was referred to Dr. Wynkoop. He was completely dismissive of my pain and obviously hadn't read the information received from my initial provider. His exam was less than minimal and a complete waste of my time. Would not recommend.

Dr. Wynkoop performed emergency surgery on my sister, after she broke her pelvis. Since she was, at that time, incapable of making her own decisions, I had consider interaction with him. He explained everything clearly, both before and after surgery -- and did a good job in the operating room. Also, my sister has been very happy with her follow-up care.
Thanks for the thoughtful feedback! I really enjoy explaining medical conditions using common sense words and explanations. I really appreciated your careful thoughtful attention to your sister's needs. Thank you for helping me give her a good outcome!
