Dr.Wolinsky is amazing. One of the best physicians I have ever had the pleasure of visiting. He takes his time and explains everything and answers every question. Spends significant amount of time with you until you have no more questions. I would definitely recommend him to everyone who needs this type of care. (hopefully no one will) but if they do, he's one of a kind.

Dr.Wolinsky's compassionate easy going manner exudes confidence. He operated on me in for a sacral chordoma. Dr. W is a premiere chordoma expert. NW made a great choice in bringing him aboard!
