Dear Cahaba Pain and Spine Care Patient,
We are delighted to announce that a new physician will be joining our practice! Dr. Zach Winkler has completed a residency in anesthesiology and an accredited pain fellowship at UAB. Dr. Winkler shares a similar background to our other physicians, Drs. Thoma and Martin. A highly capable and well-trained physician, Dr. Winkler was chosen from dozens of qualified candidates and will start evaluating patients at Cahaba Pain and Spine Care in August 2020.
The addition of Dr. Winkler will result in improved appointment availability for our patients, some of whom may wait several weeks for procedures and new patient visits. As always, our focus remains delivering excellent care and improving things where necessary. The addition of Dr. Winkler will allow Drs. Thoma and Martin to continue serving Cahaba patients while improving your overall access to the clinic and your individualized care.
Dr. Winkler will be accepting new patients and also performing procedures for some of our established patients. He may perform a procedure for you or supervise your follow-up visit with one of the nurse practitioners. He may review your imaging or call you back about a diagnostic result. We look forward to working alongside him as he starts in early August. Please join us in welcoming Dr. Winkler to Cahaba Pain and Spine Care!
Drs. Martin and Thoma
