Patient Comments (4)
Dr. Withers is brilliant, kindhearted, loving and caring. Dr. Withers saved my life when I was fifteen years old. He's been beyond good to me the last 20 years as his patient. I am beyond blessed to have had him as my surgeon. Thank you Dr. Withers for giving me a second chance at life.

Dr. Withers has been nothing but amazing taking care of me as a patient. He removed a blood clot from my brain and added plates to my skull for a skull fracture. Every visit was amazing and the service through every step of the way was easy and comforting not to forget the amazing front desk personnel. I was very nervous about this before the surgery but I definetly would recommend Dr. Withers.

Dr. Withers is a very exacting and experienced surgeon. These are critical characteristics in my mind if you need neuro surgery. He cares about his patients and will ensure that they receive the best care possible, not only in his office but in the hospital if surgery is required. I have had two surgeries (20 years apart) performed by Dr. Withers and I would not go any where else. I traveled from Pa to be able to have Dr. Withers help me

Snarky, belittling to women, no bedside manner. I had nightmares about my work with Dr. Withers due to his manner. He was angry that I picked another dr. to do my brain surgery, and when I returned, he talked down to me, lied about my test results, wouldn't let my husband sit with me during the appt (we should've insisted!!), and stomped out. He left his wife (a staff member there) to smooth things over. I left sobbing and didn't return. My GP doesn't refer patients to him anymore.
