I strive to care for both male and female patients with Urologic health conditions. I follow an evidence based plan of care, while both I and the patient work to make educated decisions together about their care. Dr. Alfred C. Winkler graduated from the Stony Brook University School of Medicine in 1993. He works in NY and specializes in Urology.
Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Winkler is great but find his administration process woefully inefficient. Insurance required prior authorization and they have been very slow to response and have called them at least dozen times. It's been 4 weeks now haven't received my med yet- that is unacceptable.
Have seen Dr. Winkler twice now for two unrelated issues, very pleasant and reassuring.
Great bedside manner. I'm a relatively young man, so seeing a urologist was a bit intimidating, but Dr. Winkler and his nursing staff were great. Gave lots of information about what he was doing and thinking, and answered all my questions.
Great doctor - Explained everything (even drew pictures) AND...I was actually taken early!
Very professional, courteous and helpful. The doctor really knows his stuff, I just wish I didn't have to wait for 45 min...
All of his reviews are very accurate. He is an excellent physician...Takes his time. Very intelligent. I recommend him highly to anyone looking for a urologist in the tristate area.
Professional, thorough, courteous and efficient. A very pleasant overall experience and walked away with clear next steps and comfort that I was in good hands.
Dr. Winkler has a dry erase board and ACTUALLY draws diagrams so you can understand how the body works and what may be potential problems depending on your particular symptoms. In 54 years I have never had a doctor do this.
Very short wait time, had a great conversation with Dr Winkler who made me feel comfortable and his staff helped quickly set up appointments with other doctors I need.
Wait time was long but that had to do with the fact that I had not included up to date insurance information on my ZocDoc nor had I brought in my insurance card. I think they did a good job considering.
Very kind and easy to talk to, helped with several issues during one visit, made everything easy to understand. Highly recommend.
Ok listen, I entrusted my balls to this man, a subject that shouldn't be taken lightly! Dr. Winkler is the ultimate professional, made me feel cery comfortable with a proceedure that most men find uncomfortable! At the hospital and in his office the emphasis was on what I felt ans wanted. The proceedure was a breeze and he personally followed up with me. Cannot fault him, altgough tge chance to name any children after him has sadly passed!
He was a pleaure to speak with and very profesional
Knowledgeable and trust inspiring.
What a gentleman. Professional, understanding and a very nice disposition...can u ask for more. Oh yeah and the nurses are also very nice.
very professional. highly recommend.
A patient person
Very pleased with my first two visits to Dr. Winkler. He listened attentively to my concerns and clearly presented a plan of action. He also quickly helped resolve an issue with my pharmacy.
Even though I arrived 20 early and all paperwork was already complete through zocdoc, I was not seen for almost 2 hours (1 hr 48 minutes) after my initial appointment time with no explanation or apology. The gentleman waiting next to me said this is standard procedure for this office. Upon trying to reschedule to leave, they magically were able to take me. The doctor was with me for just over 2 minutes. No comprehensive exam- as I was scheduled for-, just an order for a sonogram. Why am I paying out of pocket for 2 minutes of terrible care? I was shocked and disappointed. Finally, I have called the office four separate times since my sonogram, each approximately two weeks apart (it has been over two months since the procedure was performed), and cannot get a basic call back to say if everything was okay. This type of negligence and incompetence has no place in Weill Cornell, where each and every other physician is high above industry standard. tldr: If you find a lump in your testicle, this is not the place to go.
I liked him. Very professional .
He is professional and listen our problems clearly then explain the detailed solution Dr . Winkler doesn't force to take unnecessary tests

Really friendly. Very informative. As far as waiting for a doctor goes, it was really fast. I was in my room at my appointment time and he saw me 15 minutes after it was scheduled. Highly recommend.
He's is professional, very understanding and intelligent. I'm sticking with him if I would need any future visits.
Dr. Winkler is very knowledgeable and kind. He listens to concerns and addresses them with options promptly.
Very organized and professional with thoughtful acvice
Prognosis and Diagnosis was very informing and on point...
He is very knowledgeable and pleasant. Explained my condition in a simple way so that I could understand.
I thought he was great. I wish he was a girl but that's because I didn't think there would be an exam and I'm alittle shy. Otherwise, he made sure to not embarrass me and make me comfortable. I would definitely come back to him and send others as well...
very concern with well being, very informative, happy I went . my first time he was professional.
