I TOTALLY disagree with the negative comments posted. So, in short, I do not visit the medical field often. In fact, rarely do I go to a doctor. I had the most wonderful consultation with Dr. Whitehead prior to my Colonoscopy. Doc's bed side manners were literally second to none. Really made me feel very comfortable. The staff which he employs are over and beyond any that I have dealt with in many years. I loved the service so much that I scheduled my endoscopy the following month. What a Team!

Such a rude doctor. Told me there was nothing wrong with me. 2nd opinion proves otherwise. He was so hateful and rude. Never will I return to his office or recommend him to any family or friends.

O stars. This man is a fool. Do not go to him. I went to him 10 years ago for stomach issues and losing weight and he continually harassed me and called me the medicaid pt. My husband worked for the hospital next door to his office. Nothing wrong with medicaid ps , I am a social worker. Next he claimed I had anorexia. . Finally he did an endoscopy and colono scope on me and told the whole surgical teamI was the medicaid pt. I now need an endoscopy and requested another dr, but they refused m
