Absolutely incredible as both a doctor and friend, would highly reccommend to anyone looking into counsling for the first time. Understands that each person is different and acts accordingly. Not pushy in anyway, gives great advice. Very understanding to first time couples trying counsling. Great, great guy.

Dr. Winkler is a great listener and very easy to talk to, which enables me to “open up” and be completely vulnerable and honest.
