Dr. Witten has been incredible and came highly recommend. He noticed the signs of endometriosis when no one else had. He ran the testing to confirm there was not another issue, and then made sure I was placed with the right Dr. to take care of my endometriosis. After my surgery he made a personal phone call just to make sure I was doing ok. If we need further treatment we will definitely return. I am endometriosis free because his main priority was my health and getting the proper treatment.

Dr. Witten and his staff at SIRM are very disappointing. Our experience with them has been nothing short of a complete nightmare. Dr. Witten withheld extremely important medical information in order to carry on with an IUI that he charged us $1,000.00 for. Seconds after the procedure was complete, he immidietely told us that he thought we should do IVF. Which made us realize that he had absolutely no confidence in the procedure he had just performed. Extremely heartbreaking experience.

We have $1000 less in our bank account due to Dr. Witten’s inability to properly explain a medical procedure to our insurance. He charged us the $1000, despite our insurance saying we should have only been charged $5. He told us he does not do letters of appeal to the ins. co, and that it was on us to do it. The ins. co. denied our appeal because it was not written by our dr. He was horrible at communicating with us as well. Limited by characters but I could go on for days. Awful experience!!!!

Dr Witten helped us conceive our children and all three experiences were exceptional. He connected with me as a person, not just a patient and that made stressful times so much easier. The trust and confidence he built with us, coupled with his vast experience, knowledge and professionalism meant there was no else I would work with. As a nurse, I have high expectations and he exceeds them. Dr Witten is forever part of our family and there are no words to describe the gratitude I have for him.

Dealing with infertility is one of the hardest things I experienced. Dr. Witten was there every step of the way, with kind words and encouragement. Dr.Witten's bedside manner is amazing, and his knowledge and skill makes him the #1 top doctor in MO. My husband and I are more than pleased that we had the chance to meet and work with Dr.Witten, and that we can finally say we are pregnant! I encourage anyone needing fertility help to reach out to Dr.Witten and his staff! He is a miracle worker!

I absolutely loved our experience in this office. Dr. Witten and his staff really care about you and your family and they go above and beyond to make you feel comfortable. Every time we had a visit they walked us through things step by step and made sure we understood what to expect. I am very happy with them and I would recommend them to everyone. I can't thank them enough for helping me to figure out why I couldn't get pregnant and to help us finally achieve a pregnancy!!! Very thorough!!!!

I have been working with Dr. Witten and his staff for 5 years. I'm so thankful my OB/GYN recommended him. When dealing with infertility, there are a lot of emotional factors as well as physical factors that need to be assessed. Their bed side manner and understanding of treating the patient as a person and not an illness is top notch. I would recommend this doctor/office to anyone.

He is very much to the point. He did not try to tell me only what I wanted to hear. He was very empathetic with my concerns.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dr. Witten and his Staff. They always have a smile on their face and they make you feel like family. My husband and I are so grateful to have met Dr. Witten. After years and years of trying to concieve Dr. Witten made our Dream come true! Our little Miracle is on the way! The best decision that we ever made was calling his office and making that first appointment. I would highly recommend Dr. Witten to anyone as you will be in great hands! -Cindy Lay

Dr. Witten was so personable and knowledgeable back between 1988-1994 when our triplets were born after invitrofertilization and 9 years of infertility. He was wonderful with our daughter who was 3yrs old at the time we started seeing him.
