Specialties

Dr. Roger A Winkle has the following 3 specialties

  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology

    While cardiologists diagnose and treat all types of heart disease, electrophysiologists have extended education in rhythmic disorders, also known as cardiac arrhythmia or an irregular heartbeat. An electrophysiologist typically works closely with a cardiologist and together they can treat arrhythmia, help you prevent blood clots, or restore and control a normal heart rate.
    They can also provide information on medications and devices — such as a pacemaker or an implantable defibrillator — used to control an abnormal heart rate. When it come to treating arrhythmias, there are both invasive and non-invasive treatment options and an electrophysiologist can help you decide which is right for you.

negligence

It's so very sad that a doctor of Dr. Winkle's caliber could have been so very wrong in his ability to for-warn a patient of the deadly toxicty caused by amiodarone. Not only did he not discuss the dangers in order to make an informed decision but he did not follow-up on any potential harmful side effects to lungs, thyroid. My father was prescribed the drug in May; was sent on his way and was dead within 5 months. Shame on you Dr. Winkle

Great doctor

Had many problems with other cardio docs - Dr Winkle understood the problem, explained it to me in language I understood and then he took care of me. He is a very caring doctor, listens well, spends as much time as necessary. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a cardiologist. I travel 1 1/2 hrs each way to see him and it is well worth it.
