  1. Ewing S. von Schmittou says:

    I had the distinct personal and professional leaure to work with “Dr. Nat” in the 1990s in a mental health setting in Nashville, Tennessee. I learned as much about human nature as I did the practice of Psychiatry. Once in a lifetime do influential people come along in one’s life – Dr. Winston was that one person for me.
