Patient Rating

Legacy wants every patient to have great care, every time. To help measure and improve patient satisfaction, we send surveys to randomly selected patients after their appointments. We use this feedback from the surveys to improve and enhance the care we offer. It works like this: Real patients give us feedback through Press Ganey, a patient satisfaction survey company. They verify and confirm the results. National Research Corporation, an independent company, provides the technology to show the ratings and comments on our website

Each visit to Dr. Winter's office is a great one. The entire staff - from receptionist, check-in nurse, Physician's Assistant to Dr. Winter - is exceptional. Throughout my treatment and recovery from cancer I couldn't imagine a more caring, thorough & intelligent team. I have felt well cared for during my entire experience from diagnosis to complete remission and continued monitoring and follow up care. I have so much gratitude for everyone one at Dr. Winter's practice, and Dr. Winter himself.

I was impressed by the provider's expertise, professionalism, compassion and theway he related to me as a person and a patient. He is encouraging not forceful. He shows a lot of compassion and care and directs a patient towards a best solution of the problem. I trust him.

Dr. Winter is intelligent, kind and patient. He's been my oncologist for the past 7 months - for the entire course of my successful treatment. He's answered every question, provided information about what to expect every step of the way, listened closely to my fears and concerns during the most uncertain time of my life. He treated me with kindness, respect and as a whole person. His office staff is amazing and patient & his coworkers are equally intelligent and kind.

Dr. Winter is an excellent care-giver, he always spent as much time as I needed to be sure that I clearly understood the procedures, recommendations, and medicines he was prescribing. I have always had prompt response to any of my questions outside of appointments, also. I highly recommend this Specialist.

Dr Winter has made my treatment with cancer as positive and informed as it could be. He is warm, listens, understands the anxiety of going through this experience as if he were a patient. He & his office is always there for me. He answered the many questions I had while making me feel valued & re-explained things I didn't understand in a way that made sense to me. He co-ordinated care with my radiation oncologist and the two offices worked together easily so that I didn't need to be the go-between. Excellent care from an intelligent, informed, kind, thoughtful provider. Thank you Dr Winter and all your staff and co-workers.

Dr. Winter has excellent bedside manners! He spent as much time with me as needed. He & his staff squeezed me in a busy schedule because of my cancer diagnosis. I was so grateful! He & his team were wonderful! I didn't know that Legacy GSM Ctr. was a teaching hospital so I was surprised to learn that a medical student and chief resident would be observing my surgery. I learned this in the pre-surgery bay 1/2 hr before my surgery. I would have preferred knowing ahead of time, that said, Dr. Winter came highly recommended, and no one could teach them better than he.

Dr Winter bent over backwards to inform and explain and even followed up with a phone call the next evening. He is very reassuring during this stressful time.

This was my first time to this office and first time seeing Dr. Winter. I was referred to him because of the discovery on an MRI of a very large mass in my pelvic area that may or may not be cancer. I was able to quickly get an appointment to see Dr. Winter given that this was an urgent matter. I was understandably anxious going on, and I'm happy to say that everyone there was amazing. So nice and personable and really made a crap situation as easy to handle as possible. (I've had cancer in the past, and I've had doctors who were terrible in how they interacted with patients.) Dr. Winter definitely took my concerns into account, and I liked his sense of humor - again, in a stressful situation, that kind of thing is critical. (I didn't finish answering the question about the test, because I'm getting the CT scan tomorrow.)

I was very pleased that the biopsy results are not clearly cancer; and the surgery that I am scheduled for will be an enhanced biopsy. Dr Winter was very clear he is not sure if this is a cancer or not. That we will face another surgery once we get the results.

The provider is a specialist and is probably not available with out a referral. My only issue with my visit was the parking. Not all vehicles are compacts. Realize that as many vehicles as possible are wanted we need space to get out of the vehicle and back in with out kissing paint with the vehicle in the next space. Thank you.
