Louisville, KY |
Arrogant and antiquated dr. Needs to retire.

Dr Winsted assisted in removing a pituitary tumor back in 2013. Nothing. It great experiences with him. I would recommend him!
Louisville, KY |
This doctor treats the medical fellows he's supposed to be training with absolute contempt. When something went wrong after one of his surgeries, he didn't even bother to meet with me. And when I tried calling his office back after a different doctor confirmed that Winstead had screwed up, assistant just hung up on me. He pretends at times to be nice (to new patients at least), but it doesn't take much for his mask to come off. Thinks he's god's gift to humanity.

Have had very engaged experience. Extremely knowledgeable and skilled surgeon. Only doctor to accurately diagnose my acoustic neuroma and recommend a top tier specialist to handle my case.
