How likely are you to recommend Dr. Winternitz Jr?
Dr. Winternitz gave me my life back. I was diagnosed with bilateral carpal tunnel syndrome in 2013. In 2017, the Department of Labor approved my case and told me to find a dr that accept payment from Worker's Comp. I spent months researching & interviewing surgeons to perform carpal tunnel release surgery. When I did find a surgeon, I encountered rude, unhelpful office staff. I was extremely frustrated. Finally, in March 2019, I contacted Dr. Winternitz's office. My first encounter, I was greeted by very helpful office staff. I received step-by-step instructions, was provided the required paperwork, and was given an appointment the following week. Meeting Dr. Winternitz was life changing. He knew exactly what needed to be done. He scheduled my surgery & his staff took care of the paperwork. The surgery and recovery were quick, and I have my life back. No more PAIN! I am no longer woken up from excruciating pain in my hands. Thank you Dr. Winternitz and staff!
