    He has the most insensitive nurse working for him. She does not ever express any sympathy for the patient's sickness or what they are going through. There is no sense of urgency in getting back to the patient if they have an issue going on or when they call. Call backs are NEVER the same day or within 24 hours. I honestly would not recommend this doctor.

    Dr Whitt recently did an endoscopy on me in the hospital. He was very professional and had great bed side manners. So glad he was my dr.
