What People Say About Dr. Benjamin Whittam, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

We have had Dr. Whittam as a urologist now for both of our daughters. He’s kind, friendly, and genuinely cares about your child and your questions. He takes as much time as possible to help you understand what the issues are and explains how to fix them. He uses medical terminology, but breaks it down into words that the average joe understands. We have been so completely satisfied with how he handles his professionalism. We leave the office visit feeling better about our situations and know that he’s amazing at his field of work and we are in the best of hands! Better than that.... knowing that our children are in the best of hands! Truly blessed that he’s our daughters urologist!

From our first appointment, through surgery and our post op experience, Dr. Whittam was phenomenal. He had a wonderful bedside manner with both our daughter and our entire family, which put us all at ease. He is extremely knowledge and able to answer any of our questions. After surgery, when our daughter started running a fever over a holiday weekend, he personally called/texted every few hours, checking in on her and giving us care instructions every step of the way. He is the best!

We feel so blessed to have been referred to Dr. Whittam. From our first consult with him when our newborn was four weeks old, to the surgery he performed on him at four months, he surpasses every expectation we could have had. We were so impressed by his knowledge and ability to explain our situation in a way we could process and understand. Dr. Whittam's staff was equally as accommodating and wonderful. We highly recommend this doctor and we feel fortunate that our son was in his care.
