Dr. Whitney has been a Godsend to my family. He was my Dad's surgeon for over 25 years and now he is working with my Mom. He is very committed to his patients. I would and have recommended him several times.

My Grandfather who is now deseased used Dr. Whitney. I will never forget the beginning of the end for my grandfather. Dr Whitney had him admitted into the ER and 2 hours later Whitney showed up slurring his speech and his eyes were bloodshot, I thought it was very strange. Dr Whitney then proceeded to amputate my grandfathers toe on the following day. After the surgery he did not prescribe any antibiotics and a few months later my grandfather had his foot amputated after fighting gangrene. Awful

My experiece with Dr Whitney was one of the worst I've ever had with a doctor. He interrupted me when I was talking and appeared to not even be listening. He's very demeaning and disrespectful. He didn't give me the feeling he really cared about me or my condition.

Difficult physically, many people don't understand pain. Excited for potential relief in my arm. Him and his MA treated me with immediate disgust. Wouldn't let finish a sentence, spoke to me like I was stupid, made an insult about my age & rollater very self conscious already he was very cold. I was late we live far away, several accidents, not familiar with area & rely my 19 year old to drive. Left in tears & humiliated. Still feel like a tourniquet on arm, lower part feel little circulation.
