Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Witter "I like to individualize patient care. We can discuss guideline directed treatments, but not everyone fits into the guidelines. I try to educate patients so they can be part of the decision making process."

Patient Comments (1)
in Seal Beach, CA |
Dr. Witter is an exception physician. He has been working with me on high blood pressure, on a visit I shared that I had been having chest pain. He did an EKG, and immediately noticed changes from my previous examination. Dr. Witter personally took me to the ER in a wheelchair, and then promptly diagnosed that I was having a cardiac event. I underwent an angiogram, and he diagnosed a cardiac artery as 100% blocked. The blockage was cleared, a stent was placed and I'm alive due to Dr. Witter.
