Not caring, does not know what is going on with his patients. Put my life at risk, wouldn’t recommend him to my worst enemy. Stay away.

Dr. Whitcomb is a good listener and is very thorough. It is very easy to make an appointment one or two days out. Wait times in the office are very short. His receptionist is very efficient and friendly.

My MRI found an abnormality at the back of the base of my skull - the very top of the spine. It is possibly a tumor that has ZERO symptoms, is very slow growing, and best treated while still very small. It is only found thru MRI or CT when a patient is being scanned for other problems. Dr. Whitcomb palpated the front of my neck about an inch below my jaw and said, it is just a jumble of veins. He referred me to a vascular surgeon. He claimed that nothing should be done unless it gets big
