As a family practice physician, Dr. Winiger enjoys being able to provide care for the entire family. She is able to get to know her patients as part of their family which better helps her to understand them. Her practice includes pediatrics, adult medicine and geriatrics. She has a special interest in women’s healthcare and gynecology. She provides the individual time and attention of solo practice with the convenience of a nurse practitioner when she is not available.
When she is not working, Dr. Winiger enjoys spending time with her husband and two sons. They are very active in sports so she enjoys watching them play. She is also active in her church and small group.
She looks forward to caring for your family.

Liz is delighted to be joining Dr. Winiger and her team at NSFH! She is a passionate promoter of healthy living and disease prevention through diet and exercise. She recognizes that a healthy lifestyle, through a simple concept, can be difficult to sustain and she is excited to work with the patients of NSFH as they embark on their personal journeys towards better health.
Liz has been a registered dietitian for over 20 years, obtaining a MA in Nutrition with a focus in exercise physiology in 1998 from Syracuse University. In 2008, she became a certified diabetes educator and has spent the last 10 years helping patients of all ages manage this challenging disease.
In her spare time, Liz enjoys spending time with husband and 2 sons. As a family, they are active in boy scouts and spend many weekends involved in scouting activities. She enjoys exploring the local parks, walking her dog (Parker) and gardening.
