“Dr. Winder is a very caring doctor and portrays that in a multitude of ways. He not only explained the entire procedure that I need to my wife and I but included all the information we needed for post operative care. He had an excellent beside manner while I was in the hospital and made sure I was getting the best possible care from the hospital while I was there. My hip replacement has been great since the moment I awoke after the procedure, all through the rehabilitation period and now after almost a year I still have had absolutely no problems. I have referred 3 of our friends to Dr Winder and if I ever need him again in the future be assured I will look forward to him taking care of me. I feel he is a great person, doctor and consider him a very good friend.”
