I was referred to Dr. Whitecar for High Iron levels. After multiple vials drawn to check my blood, Dr. White car comes in and says that something that I wasn't even there for was fine. After I explained again why I was there he said he would call me with my iron levels...still no call. After paying $90 in the office they wanted to send me to collections for another $90. When I called the office manager and explained I never got any results, she literally said"so you owe the money or collections

I worked with Dr. Whitecar before I became his patient. He was my Moms' oncologist, also, before he became my hematologist. Dr. Whitecar is absolutely phenomenal with patients. He takes his time with us and, even though I'm a nurse, takes the time to explain and teach about my diagnosis. When I was working at the hospital, if I had to call him about a patient, he was able to recall their lab values and other details about the patients' care so quickly. I trust him!
