It was a great experience. As a new patient, we sat down in his office and he took a thorough history and listened. You can tell he cares about his patients, not just as a patient, but as a whole person. I've had issues in the past regarding childbirth,etc with another provider, and he listened and gave me confidence that he would be not just a capable provider, but a comforting one, during a challenging birth.

He was great! I only had an hour for my lunch break to squeeze in a much needed appointment. He had a couple of emergencies that made the wait longer than expected. The office knew I only had an hour and when he saw me, he made sure to move quickly and I was back in my office only a few minutes late! It was amazing and so kind of him to accommodate my tight schedule!

I love Dr. Wind, been seeing him for a few years now. He delivered my beautiful baby girl. He will always be my doctor. The wait time is a bit long but it is worth it because of the great service. Viera and Norma are great! I will continue to go here as long I am able to, hopefully he delivers my next one :)

Dr. Wind is an exceptional OB-GYN. I've been going to him for the better part of a decade. He wasn't able to deliver my first baby because my son decided to be born the one weekend Dr. Wind took off in three years. Luckily, my daughter was more considerate and it was an incredible experience. I feel very lucky to have him as my doctor. His support staff is wonderful. If I ever leave the city I will revolve visits around my annuals.

Dr. Wknd was very courteous, professional, and has a sense of humor that immediately made me feel comfortable when I came in to see him as a new patient for my annual pap. The nurse, also his wife, was there during the entire examination, was sweet, and made me feel comfortable.

I really Dr. Wind - he is to the point, speaks to me like an adult (instead of 'dumb-ing down' things), and took the time to answer all of my questions. I only waited about 15minutes, and the majority of that was room set-up, grabbing charts, etc. His receptionist, Norma, is super friendly as well. The appt rooms are basic, but clean and functional. I don;t like / need frills anyways, so this works for me. I will say that he is a very no bull kind of guy (which I really like), but if you want your hand held, then you should go somewhere else.

Richard Wind is a wonderful doctor. He is very through, detail oriented and genuinely caring person for your well-being. I would most certainly recommend him to my female friends. I am hoping that my waiting experience was a one off since I ended up waiting for over an hour initially. Since his office offers sonogram as well, which is a huge plus, the process may take too long hence delaying the next person's appointment. Hopefully, I will not experience much of a wait time during my next visit.

The long wait was a bit of a pain but after I finally got in to the see the doctor it didn't seem so bad. It's clear the reason the wait is so long is because he's very thorough and spends a lot of time with the patient. I waited for Dr. Wind for about an hour and a half, but I was with him for about an hour, as well.

Dr. Wind has been my doctor since 1993. He delivered my daughter via "C" section and you could not tell I had a cut on my body. It was so neat and everything went smooth. My daughter is now 19 years old and I am planning to have her go see this doctor. Always a pleasure going to get my check up. Cheers!

This was the most thorough visit that I have ever experienced. I learned about Dr.Wind by a practice manager who works in another doctors office and who has had received rave reviews from many satisfied patients of Dr. Winds. Meeting and visiting Dr. Wind backed up what I have heard about his work and I definitely recommend him.

I spent about 90 minutes in the office total, but I expected as much as per the other reviews. The wait is definitely worth it though. Dr. Wind was very kind and knowledgeable. He was straight to the point with my introductory questions and the exam was quick and uncomplicated. He has lots of experience and it shows. I'm happy to have found a new ob/gyn!

I adore Dr. Wind and have been his gyn patient for 15 years and now on baby #2. Normally there is a wait, but today not. He is worth the wait and gives the proper care needed. I don't trust anyone the way I do him. if I lived on the other sode of the workd I'd travel back just to have him be my doctor.

I've been Dr. Wind's patient for almost ten years. I've never been happier with a medical professional and his staff. I have had to wait but that's because Dr. Wind and the ladies at his office take their time with each and every patient which is wonderful and uncommon now a days.

It is always a good visit. There were circumstances that made the appointments late and they called me in advance before I went to help minimize the time. That's the kind of thing they do - the nice courtesies. It was still quite a long wait, but in my experience, that is unusual. Dr. Wind had a delivery coming, but still wanted to see as many people as possible who had come in.

Dr. Wind is a rare and wonderful practitioner. He offers patients a high level of experience as well as excellent personal attention. At times, this may mean a little extra waiting room time, but it is well worth it. His support staff is equally attentive and always professional.
