Review of Dr. Whittwell

- |

Have a hernia in my right lower epigastrium, which I went to have surgery on. He sewed up my umbilicus instead. When I went back for a follow up and asked why I still had a bulge one inch above my belly button, he told me that's not what he had operated on. When I asked him what he meant, as this is what I had come in to investigate and get fixed, he was completely dismissive, telling me that my muscles were just so strong that my tendon was popping out. Ultrasound proved it's a hernia.

Really good surgeon and doctor. Ingrid front desk assistant is the best! The wait time can be long but it’s definitely worth the wait. I cant thank Dr.Whitwell and Ingrid enough for their help during my weight loss journey!

Review of Dr. Whittwell

Dr. Whitwell went over all the pros and cons of the different surgical approaches for a cholecystectomy. Even after outweighing the cons (increased possibility of an umbilical hernia) of a single incision laparoscopic cholecystectomy (SILC) via Da Vinci, I felt confident that Dr. Whitwell could carry out the surgery with confidence and without complications. One month post op, I am happy with the aesthetics of having ONE scar inside/below the umbilicus.
