Dr. Whitfill has been very kind and thorough throughout our 5 year old daughters experience these past couple years. He never leaves a question unanswered and has great bedside manner with both parents and children. He freely offers outside resources to provide parents adequate understanding. Our daughter just had surgery and we are very pleased with what was communicated to us prior to surgery and the outcome. We are happy with the level of care we have received from 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.
