I would definitely recommend Dr Winter if they needed care for their cancer.

Dr. Winter was incredible. I don't want to brag, but I've seen a lot of doctors. I've had cancer twice and I'm not even 30. I think she's the first oncologist that has ever made me feel like I was her only patient in the world in the time that we were in that closed room together. She also did what she said she was going to after our appointment and within 1-2 days I had messages from her about the follow-up items she said she would work on. Incredible. I have never not had to f/u with providers especially in oncology based on how busy they always are.

Throughout my treatment for lymphoma over the 9 months or so, Dr. Allison Winter has been an excellent doctor. She is extremely knowledgeable, patient and caring. She took the necessary time to explain my condition, test results and treatment and showed genuine concern. From the beginning, I felt that I was in good hands at a very frightening and stressful time. Please continue to allow Dr. Winter to practice in this manner. Too often these days, medical treatment seems very rushed with the doctors being unwilling or unable to spend time with their patients. My experience with Dr. Winter was not like that.
