Patient Comments (3)

I spent over a decade in treatment with other providers; after a year seeing Dr. Whitfield, he was able to see a diagnosis that changed my life for the better. That was six years ago, and the change has been phenomenal.

Retraumatized my wife and refused to refill her prescription because we couldn't afford his $250 office visit fee this week.
