Dr. Witter saved my life! It's been 19 years since I had 6 bypasses! He diagnosed my angina, helped treat me and was there for me after surgery! He is brilliant!

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.

About Me

Care Philosophy

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.
