I have been a patient of Dr. Winter's since Jan/Feb, 2019, since that time I have visited the facility in Atascadero a number of times and have always (underscore) been treated with courtesy, respect, and a caring attitude.
Jan 15, 2020
Dr. Winter is (underscore) the best physician that I have come in contact with since moving to the Central Coast in 1987. Believe me I've seen more that a few with my personal co-morbidities that have required some sort of treatment over the past 30+ years. She is fantastic in all categories! In my opinion she has been flawless, as a matter of fact, during a hospitalization that I had in 12/2018 to 01/2019 I believe she saved my life.
Jan 15, 2020
The support staff, from the receptionist, to the nursing staff, to the friendly gal that checks you our and schedules your next appointment have all been helpful, courteous, respectful and caring. I have never felt rushed, or treated poorly because someone had a bad day, or their workload was overwhelming or for whatever reason, I feel that I am their first priority from beginning to end. You, the company, has accumulated great staff to represent you. Because of all this I have recommended many folks to you and have told many more about the excellent treatment that I receive with FCPP and Dr. Winter; and I will continue to do so!

the only reason I would not recommend Dr winter would be that I don't want her to get so busy as other Dr's do. I left dignity because I couldn't get in to see my Dr. I loved my Dr there but what good is having one if you can never see them?

Very quick, Dr. Winter updated my medication prescription, since I am a newer Patient. She was Professional, Friendly, and asked good pertinent questions about the medication.
