Dr. Whitty is an excellent doctor that actually listens to you. I would defiantly recommend anyone that is in need of a neurologist.

Dr. whitty does not listen to you when you try to talk to him and tell him whats wrong. He just prescribes another pill. He also spends very little time with you.

I saw Dr. Whitty as a new patient and he was absolutely wonderful! He did not rush me, instead he sat down and listened to what I had to say. He was very professional along with all the ladies in the office! Thank you Kristen for going above and beyond.

Misdiagnosis, 1st time, then 2nd time. 3rd. Time. I don't recommend, doesn't seem concerned or when something's happening he isn't ordering what needs to be done for neurology. MRI/CT etc.

I was very unhappy with my visit w/Dr. Whitty. I expected some answers on what to do for the nerve ending damage in my chest area due to an accident. Thought maybe there were some tests he could do. He just ran his finger down my spine, made me walk with shoes off & said I don't think I can help...more
