I can't say enough about Dr Winkelaar, he operated on my Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm which was 7.5 cm. Gerrit Winkelaar took the time to explain the risks involved to my wife an I. It has been over two years now, the scar is barely noticeable and I feel great. Thank you Dr. Winkelaar, I am very grateful to you and your staff. You saved my life, thank you, Dan Morrison
Dr Winkelarr is an Arrogant inconsiderate and incompetent doctor don’t walk away from him but run from him get a second opinion this man does not know how to be a doctor went there for a vascular problem and he suggested that I get an MRI on my back ? when what was the back was angina and I ended up having 13 blocked arteries 80% more this man couldn’t figure this out even after seeing him numerous times .
What can I say!! Dr. Winklaar is an awesome doctor with an awesome personality.My hubby has had two surgeries for a blocked artery in his right leg by Dr. Winklaar .His treatment of the patient as well as the family is fantastic... Highly recommend him ..
This doctor is a godsend. He explains everything so that you understand what he going to do and you do not leave his office with any questions unanswered. Surgery was a success thanks to him . I felt very confident and very at ease going into surgery. I want to thank him with all my heart and soul for giving me a second chance at life. I would not be here today without him and his wonderful staff. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Irene Ryall
Dr. Winkelaar saved our grandma and mother. He is so knowledgable, but not only knowledgable knows how to simplify medical language for the average person. He treated her and us with respect and dignity. We could not have asked for a better surgeon to perform an aortic aneurysm on our family member. He was realistic and straightforward. Thank you Dr. Winkelaar for all that you did for your patient and us!
Dr. Winkelaar operated on me for a 7.5 cm Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm, I must say thank you to Dr. Winkelaar, he saved my life! He was very professional and an excellent Dr. He told me all of the risks going in which they are suppose to do. Luckily everything went perfect. if you have any Vascular issues, Dr. Winkelaar is the guy to go to. He also spent time counselling my wife as it was a very tramatic time for her as well
I would give zero stars if I could. My mother saw him for pelvic aneurysms. He told her that there was nothing he could do and if they burst she would bleed to death. She spent a long time in a constant state of panic due to this until we could get a second opinion (after a YEAR due to of Canada's sh***y free healthcare system). I would not recommend him to anyone. Go see Dr Alibai instead.
Who would you trust to cut into your body, when you're in control of who you select to do it? Well, all I can say about Dr Winkelaar, is that from my first meeting, to the surgery and follow up appointments, he has filled me with confidence with the knowledge he has in his field and the down to earth way he explained it to me. If you have a vascular problem, Dr Winkelaar is the first man you need to speak to after your GP, as you can tell, I highly recommend him. Phil Ball
