Large Tumor of the Brachial Plexus,Dr Winfree is the BEST

After I was told I had a large brachial plexus tumor I was scared to death! I was told by my primary doctor to start looking for a Neuro Surgeon, I went to 3 of them and they were not giving me good news.Dr. Winfree knew he had a difficult case with me I feel. I had another Dr. Tell me I could lose all feeling in my Arm, Shoulder, and everything connected to the brachial plexus.if the operation went wrong.Dr. Winfree's skills saved my shoulder and everything connected to it.I have atrophy in some muscles in my arm, But I have full mobility and can use my hand.So I am happy I chose the right Doctor And Hospital.People will tell you to get a few opinions from neurosurgeons especially when you have a serious central nervous system tumor, I recommend seeing Dr. Winfree first.

Great doctor and staff

Dr. Winfree and his staff are wonderful. He has a sense of humor that someone else might take it the wrong way. He deals with patients who have chronic pain and it's definitely not an easy task, but he is an excellent doctor and treated my pain
