Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. Jay Wittenkeller is a great Oncologist. He treats both my wife and I. He is very clear when he describes what is going on with us. He listens and always responds in well explained answers. He is a great doctor and is leaps and bounds better than most doctors when it comes to making you feel comfortable during stressing times. In my opinion Dr. Wittenkeller is Spokane's best Oncologist. If you have any blood disorders or have been diagnosed with cancer, you will want him as your doctor.

Dr Wittenkeller cared for my mother with her lung cancer and has cared for me the last 8 yrs starting with my lung cancer. He is calm and straightforward and always seems prepared when you see him meaning he's looked at your chart, reviewed your test results and comes into the room giving the feeling he knows what he's talking about and has a plan.
