I had knee surgery and Dr Wind was great. I could not believe what a relief it was. He was awesome each step of the way. So glad I went with Dr Wind. I love how he spends time to answer questions.

Dr. Wind's PA did not see fracture on x-ray at initial visit. Discovered months later on MRI which also showed torn meniscus. After fracture heals had surgery for meniscus-which wasn't torn. Knee worse after surgery. Dr.'s attitude became very negative. Would not look into why knee worse. Then kicked me out of the practice which also meant I could not see another doctor in the practice that I had been seeing for 5 years for unrelated injury. Have permanent nerve damage in knee now.
