My 10-year-old twins, who were born at 23-weeks gestation, have seen Dr. Whitfill since they came home from the NICU. He operated on my daughter when she wasn't quite a year old. He has always been kind, caring, patient and gone above and beyond for us. I highly recommend Dr. Whitfill!

Good at getting non verbal daughter diagnosed early in life and great at addressing parents concerns and questions. Only downside is appointments later than early morning tend to have a long wait time, which is tough for little kids.
