Growing up in Shreveport as the son of a pediatrician, John Winterton, MD, FACC, was daily exposed to the healthcare field and was guided in that direction. After graduating from Jesuit High School (now Loyola College Prep), he received a bachelor’s degree in microbiology from the University of Notre Dame, followed by medical school at LSU Health Sciences Center School of Medicine in New Orleans. He completed his internship and residency there, as well as a fellowship in cardiology. He returned to Shreveport-Bossier City after many years of cardiology practice at hospitals in Lake Charles.
Dr. Winterton is a Fellow of the American College of Cardiology and has served as a regional council delegate of the Louisiana chapter. He served on the LSU School of Medicine-New Orleans alumni board and on the board of the Heart Foundation during his practice time in Lake Charles. He is certified in cardiovascular disease by the American Board of Internal Medicine.
Returning to his hometown, Dr. Winterton provides cardiology services through offices in Shreveport at Pierremont at Pierremont Cardiology, at WK Stockwell Medical Plaza in Bossier City and WK Palmetto Village in Benton. He and his wife, Emily, a native of Bossier City, have three children.
