Rex Winters MD, is an interventional cardiologist who always had an interest in physiology. He felt that medicine—specifically cardiology—would allow him to combine his interest and knowledge to advance cutting-edge technology and high-quality care. During his training he completed an internal medicine residency, a cardiology fellowship and an interventional cardiology fellowship.

Interventional cardiology was undergoing a technological revolution during the time Dr. Winters was in medical school. As he entered the field, he knew he would be able to grow his skill sets for many years to come. Even now, interventional cardiology specialty is still advancing.

“Cardiovascular care remains highly dependent on evaluating patients in person,” he describes. “It’s that doctor-patient encounter during consultation and routine visits that I enjoy the most.” He says that the diversity of patients and cardiovascular challenges that he sees on a daily basis keeps him motivated.

His experience and skills within interventional cardiology as well as leadership and compassion for his patients are what differentiates him from others in his field. His mother was a teacher and his father a welder. He says it is the experience of his childhood that allows him to remain humble and caring in his medical practice.

Dr. Winters has been recognized annually for the past 20 years, and most recently in 2021, by Super Doctors in the area of cardiology. His main leisure pursuit is golf, but as a father of five daughters and a grandfather of four granddaughters, he says his interests are directed by his girls.

Yes, I'm a patient of Dr. Winters and I found his care extremely excellent. He's a very caring doctor and definitely would recommend him. On the scale of 10, you know, 10 being best, he's definitely a 10. The staff is great also. They're very attentive, very responsive and very, very comfortable dealing with them.

The new registration process includes questions regarding my sexual history and preferences - I found these questions intrusive and I don't know why my cardiologist would need this information

I waited for over an hour to see Dr. Winters, it was not his fault, but I believe staff should have advised me from time to time during the time I waited as to the reason and why the delay.
May 18, 2022
A very professional team.
May 17, 2022
The staff was wonderful, they greeted you warmly and were affectionate and friendly as you enter. They took the most time and care with all the patients that I saw including myself. The physician was marvelous, did everything he could to make sure that you understood and we're happy with the treatment and was what was going to happen, couldn't have asked for a better experience. Thank you.

Hey, he has been my doctor for like 5/6 years and to me he's the best there is, so that's the bottom line. I know you're on a new health thing, but right, that's it. Goodbye.
April 20, 2022
The staff and doctor are very friendly and personable.
April 19, 2022
The only negative was the registration process when I arrived. As a returning patient it was a little surprising that I had to enter my information from square one into the orange tablet. Much of the information seemed like it should have already been in my record. That said, the staff was helpful and did their best to make this part easy for me. Hopefully this is just a one time occurrence as I understand that the Heartscape practice is now incorporated into PIH and are adapting to the mothership's precesses.
April 19, 2022
Couldn't be any better!
April 15, 2022
Never waited as long as I did at this appt but worth the wait.

March 01, 2022
I was really disappointed in the patient questionnaire that I had to fill out. Not the questions that actually pertaining to me and my health, but the barrage, total unsolicited advertisement for drugs of which I don't want, don't need and don't want to be solicited for and shoved in my face. And that's not Dr. Winters, that's whoever you guys are PIH, and I would suggest that you eliminate that and stop torturing people to watch that crap. Thank you.
February 28, 2022
I feel like everyone at the office receptionist to the nurses to the doctor. Listen, very intently and are very courteous and wonderful. That's how I feel, and I appreciate them very much. Thank you.

February 22, 2022
Excellent overall experience.
February 22, 2022
I would like to ask why you are not in the network with Cigna anymore. I have been with Dr. Winters for more than 8 years and now I'm told my Cigna Insurance is no longer in network since you at PHI took over. I think you need to be finding a way to accept all major Insurances. Dr. Winters and his office staff were just awesome before you took over.
February 22, 2022
He's a great doctor
February 17, 2022

I'm disappointed that Dr. Winters will no longer be a member of Memorial Care. In order to get Tier 1 benefits, I have to find another cardiologist.

Dr. Winters is a great doctor. He's friendly. He's thorough. He listens and cares about you. I don't have anything bad to say about him. He is a great doctor. Thank you.
February 11, 2022
Dr. Winters is a very special physician. He called me from out of town. When I was very upset about a procedure. I needed to have, I needed to have surgery in a matter of days, and I needed a clearance, and he was so kind, so haven't sent so understanding that he called me from out of town to reassure me that he would do everything that he could to help me reach my goal of completing the stress test in order for me to have my surgery in a timely manner. I enjoyed the staff. Everyone was very nice. The place is beautiful inside, just magnificent, but clean and, and just a wonderful wonderful experience. I couldn't have asked for a nicer experience. Thank you very much, Dr. Winters and your

My appointment was rescheduled several times and I received two emails the week of the appt with different times. I ended up obeying the wrong one and had to wait over an hour.
February 04, 2022
I would definitely go back to this doctor. We've been seeing him for years. We will continue to see him till we don't need to anymore, but the doctor is very thorough and we trust him very much. Thank you.
February 04, 2022
Very satisfied. Answered all questions and I had many. He was relaxed, used no computer when talking to me, sat down, with good eye contact.
February 01, 2022
Dr. Winters has always looked out for my best interests.
January 31, 2022
Good experience with Dr. Winters. However, when I walked in the receptionist didn't have her mask on, she didn't put it in until after I was there up at the front desk and the masking in general was not the greatest. I felt uneasy when I was there, I would appreciate if in the medical office the masking of the employees was more consistent. Thank you.
January 31, 2022
I have been with this office for many years, and I have never had a bad experience. Everybody treat me with respect to the meetings, go fine, and I am extremely pleased with Dr. Winter's and his entire staff.
January 28, 2022
I'm not really impressed with PIH. I think they want to get their nose in a little bit too much of patients' business.
January 28, 2022
Physician and entire staff were superb in every respect
