Verified Patient Reviews
He is very personable, and gave me some good ideas on how to work with my issues.
I thought Dr. Winegar was very thorough.
It took awhile for me to get used to him. He is a friendly guy and cares about his patients. I would recommend him.
Very satisfied with staff and Dr. Winegar
Very thorough, a good listener, answers questions clearly. He's really nice and approachable as well. I would absolutely see him again but sadly we've moved out-of-state.
DR WINEGAR AND STAFF WERE VERY HELPFUL AND FRIENDLY
My appointment was at 7:50 a.m. and I was out of the office by 8:10 a.m. I have had 15+ years of sinus infections and allergy issues and only till I was treated by Dr. Winegar in 2010 did I finally get some resolution and relief.
I got into the first room pretty quick for the hearing test (about 15 min wait) but waited in the inner room for a long time. Apt was at 2:45 and got done about 4:30. He was great tho and very thorough. The staff is kind and courteous and efficient. Easy parking in garage next-door ($4).
it was great, knowledgeabe staff.
Very Kind & Professional !
He was informative and straightforward.
Dr. Winegar asked excellent questions and got to the bottom of my vocal problems immediately (I'm a classically trained singer). When I fussed about tinnitus he suggested a hearing test which we did on the spot, not with a second appointment. Just plain enjoyed the visit!
Thorough and very nice! He explained everything and gave me info to help me out at home when condition occurs!
Doesn't try to add extra procedures if he can do it the simple way.
