Ratings for Dr. Beth M. Winke
I have been seeing Dr. WI ke for 6 years now. Her and her staff have always been amazing and helpful. As for the negative drug screenings go you should always take meds as prescribed. She has way too much on the line (like her license, which was almost taken away because of a letting a patient get refills on their scripts with a negative drug test! You can thank our wonderful government and people that sell their meds for this. You have to always be on time and be responsible, most of all dont over take your meds or take other drugs. Dr. Winke will there for you just like she has been me. Also, she does acupuncture! This has done wonders for me. I hope this information helps. Seems like the only people that are commenting are the ones that haven't followed the very strict rules. The rules are put there for a reason. If you don't follow them then you have to suffer the consequences
Everyone who keeps being dischared for false negative drug test.what do we do? Pain mgt doc is hod no one will take you once you've been fired from.one and winke won't see you agian to even appeal or re test even at other doctors request thier answer is that they are to busy! What recourse do we have?
Please save your time and a whole lot of drug testing money because you will be taking a drug test each and every time you walk through this Drs office, not only is this dr all about the all mighty dollar bill she will drop you like a hot potato, you only see her on your first visit and from there out you get her little puppets called pa's, she has pain management down to a money making science, not sure how she keeps getting away with it but she does
In my opinion: PA runs the show; Dr. Winke is the puppet. Kangaroo court. If you don't come bearing gifts (preferrably food) for the Staff, you might as well forget it. Arrive on time, 50 minute wait. Question the Staff or say something negative to Dr. Winke about the Staff . . . you're released . . . through the mail! Call to discuss what the problem is, you won't get past the receptionist. Save yourself the grief, find another Pain Management Doctor!

Suffer from 3 chronic pain syndromes. Dr. Winke seemed a bit distant, doesn't ask questions, except, "How are you?" Office Manager not very helpful, doesn't like to return calls. After 1 year of treatment, was "fired" abruptly by mail, no reason given. After more than a month of trying to talk with her or the manager to find out reason, was told that my urine test had come out negative for narcotics (that were prescribed). What the heck?? While I tried not to use them all of the time, I really WAS taking the narcotics. What the heck?? Couldn't get thru to Dr. Winke. Because the test was false, I was basically told that it sounded like I was hoarding the drugs (and possibly selling them instead. I was startled & totally embarrassed at the accusation. Now afraid that my "record" has a black mark on it. Am still without a doctor, and currently in a good deal of pain. Think twice before using this doctor! There's GOT to be a good, knowledgeable FMS/CFS/MPS pain doc in this area.
I waited well over an hour after my appointment time before being taken back. She is nice enough, but seemed lost. Office staff refuses to answer patient questions, very protective of the doctor when integrity is called into question. Racked up thousands of dollars in fees for drug testing that wasn't covered by insurance because a local lab was not used. By the time I finally got into the office for an appointment, the pain had stopped. Was hoping for some help in diagnosing the problem rather than being handed a prescription. Office staff very unprofessional.
