We love Dr. Whitaker, because he always finds time to see us or call us back. He gives us great referrals and gets us well or stable if we are ill. We have been seeing him for 40 years or so and have never been disappointed. His office is very organized and staff well trained. He uses the computer to order our prescriptions. Have previously recommended him to friends and family.
