Dr Winchester is an anomaly among doctors. She has genuine care for her patients and spends the time to know them. I've also sent my daughter and granddaughters to her and knew they were in the best of hands. Excellent and thorough exams.

Have seen Karen twice, once when I had debris in eye and once for new prescription. Both visits were great with best results possible.

Emergency situation

Dr. Winchester met me in an emergency situation. She came to St. Vincent's Hospital early on a Saturday morning. She was the on-call Doctor for my regular opthamalogist. Nothing but good words for her attitude.
