I went with a friend for her consultation with Dr. Witwer. I appreciate his honesty & willingness to say surgery was not a good option for her due to various health complications. His integrity & expertise are greatly appreciated.

Dr. Wither was incredible. He comforted me when I came in from the accident and his whole team treated me like family. He completed surgery on my neck fusing my c5, c6, c7, and t1. He was in surgery for 6 hours and had perfect outcomes. I am happy to be walking from his work today.
