Dr. Wolinsky is brilliant, articulate and empathetic. Also imaginative. I found her uniquely insightful and a fine listener, especially valuable qualities today, when those qualities are rare among the doctors I have consulted.

She’s everything you want in a doctor: warm, personable, spends time answering ALL your questions (no matter how stupid some of mine are), and of course she’s very knowledgeable. Another thing I really like about her is that she tells itto you straight - for example, she’ll tell me that I don’t need to spend hundreds on something, when a less expensive option works just as well. I can’t say enough good things about her.
