What People Say About Dr. David Witham, MD

Dr. Witham is an excellent doctor, I would highly recommend him. As a new patient he treated me promptly. He took the time to explain my injury and even researched a surgical procedure that would not leave scars. Dr. Witham’s sense of humor and bedside manor put me at ease. His demeanor is affable, calm, patient, and compassionate. Dr. Witham is a world class doctor, I felt fortunate to find him in Fairbanks.

I had surgery done in 2012 to repair my shoulder. It’s been almost 8 years and I am still in constant pain. I have been seen by specialists in other states that cannot believe the procedure and follow up I was given was even done. I will never be pain free, thanks to Dr Witham.
