I am a patient of Dr. Joel Wittles. The only consultation I had from him was very uncomfortable. Dr. Wittles is not an approachable Dr. and made me uncomfortable talking to him. I had blood tests completed for almost 2 weeks and have reached out to the office at least 5 times and no one has returned my messages. I needed a refill on my medication that I requested a week ago and no response. Would highly not recommend this Dr. or staff.
