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 you. Also recommended I get a breast reduction??! I couldn't believe what I was hearing. He charged $199 for that 5 minute assumption. Oh also said I should go to an ob? Meant obgyn! Never again!

I wouldn't take a cat off the street to this "Doctor." He is strictly there to take your money and does not care about you or want to take the time to look into your problems. He is very quick to push you off to someone else and in a very rude manner. Please save yourself and your time and see another Neurologist.

For my first appt everything went well. Then when I needed to start the medications everthing went south. Well to begin with called the office bc my migraines would not go away, the Front person was very rude. Weeks later front person was rude for the 2nd time. I asked repeatedly dr to please have him call me bc the medications were giving me a side effect and I called the dr, he never returned my call. He called and I spoke to him on the phone 7 hrs later and he never asked me to come back.

Would never recommend this Doctor or staff the girl at the front desk should not be in the medical field shows no concern for the patient as for the Doctor he can't answer very many questions and seeing I have been in the medical field for 20+ years Iam pretty sure if you put the word specialist with your name you should be able to answer the questions to your patients in that field so Please if your loved one needs a neurologist please Do Not go here
