Dr Whittaker performed a colonoscopy on me. Everything went very well, without any complications. He is not only a very knowledgeable gastroenterologist , but has a great bedside manner. He was easy to talk to and seems earnestly concerned about me. I will, without hesitation, recommend him to family and friends.

Dr. Whittaker clearly sets himself apart from other GI’s. I have never felt so confident and trusting with a healthcare provider than the service Dr. Whittaker has provided. Everything makes sense from the initial visit to long term solutions. Working through a disease can be a very stressful time for anyone and their family. But Dr. Whittaker really cares about his patience and has a great way of explaining things which anyone can understand. I feel good putting my health in his hands.
