Dr Wittig removed a mass from my shoulder that turned out to be benign, repaired a tear, and removed a cyst from my shoulder bone. Almost five months later and I’m almost fully functional with help of physical therapy. No problems at all during recovery. He is very personable and competent and his staff is wonderful, especially his PA, Connie Chong and PA-C, Jillian Thomas. They were all highly accessible and responsive to my questions and concerns, night or day. I can most confidently recommend Dr Wittig to anyone needing an orthopedic oncologist.

Awful experience. Hip Surgery left me with one leg 1 1/2" shorter than the other. Wittig denied it profusely, despite 3 other doctors confirming it. Dr. never came to see me after surgery, and wouldnt see me during follow ups. His PA was very nice but could never answer any questions so I finally had to "insist" on him seeing me. Thanks to Dr Wittig, I had to get another surgery with a different/better doctor to make my legs even again. AVOID!!!

Dr. Wittig is the best physician I have ever encountered. An MRI of my 20-year old daughter indicated a sarcoma (cancer) in her shoulder. Living in NYC, we were referred to a NYC orthopedic oncologist. We could not get even a consultation for a month. I came across Dr. Wittig’s name late on a Friday evening and emailed him my daughter’s MRI report. Early Saturday morning, he had already responded to my message and scheduled an appointment for Monday — even though he was supposed to be on vacation. He scheduled surgery within a few weeks and we received great news that our daughter’s tumor was benign. Dr. Wittig is surrounded by a team that is extremely caring and competent.

I have been under Dr. Wittig’s and his PA Ms. Connie Chong’s care for two years for imaging and observation of what fortunately has turned out to be a benign growth that will not require surgical intervention. I cannot adequately express how high the level of care has been. It is simply exemplary and all physicians in this country should strive to meet the high standards of compassionate and effective care that Dr. Wittig and Ms. Chong maintain. They are the best!!!!

My experience with Dr. Wittig was amazing. He made me feel so comfortable from the time he walked into the exam room. I knew immediately that I was in good hands. My surgery went very well, and his bedside manner was amazing. His staff is just as amazing as he is, very helpful in the office and on the phone. I could not have asked for a better Doctor.

April 2018 I walked into my primary care physician and was dx. With a rare bone cancer/tumor Chondrosarcoma,never heard of that word in all my 46 years even with my medical background. I googled the dx on you tube and found Dr.James Wittig and god directed me straight to his ofc. The day My family and I met Dr.Wittig was the day I knew I was in great hands. THIS MAN IS ABOVE AND BEYOND AN EXCELLENT EXCEPTIONAL ORTHOPEDIC SURGEON. Dr.Wittig and his team are all heaven sent! This man is AMAZING!!!

I have been going to Dr. Wittig since 2015 for surgery and follow-up treatment for a soft tissue sarcoma. This is Dr. Wittig's specialty and I could not be in better hands. He is an amazing surgeon and gifted doctor. Consider yourself lucky if you are one of his patients as you will receive the finest, competent, professional and compassionate care from both Dr. Wittig and his staff. An excellent doctor in every respect.

Updating previous review, the doctor failed to obtain clean margins after my resection, the pathologist said I was clear but was either incompetent or just boosting wittigs numbers. When fox chase got my slides they said there was obvious evidence of residual disease. They changed my treatment based on a report of “ successful surgery” and advised survallience by the time they caught the mistake it was too late cancer spread to my lungs. So ty dr wittig and your team for failing every aspect.

Dr. Wittig is a highly skilled and most humane and caring physician. My first consultation was a reassuring experience. Though he explained that the rather rare and problematic disease affecting my knee would require two consecutive surgeries to repair, he radiated confidence and compassion. He took time to get to know me as a person. The day after my second surgery, he drove over half an hour from his home to the hospital specifically to see how I was faring. Dr. Wittig is the best!
