I am happy with my visit to Dr. Wittman. He has wonderful staff that work there as well. I felt like he was thorough and has a good plan for my condition. I am glad I found this doctor.

Very understanding and honest. Answers questions so that you can understand. I would recommend him to anyone.
in Hopewell, VA |
Great doctor who listens and takes what you want into account. I started seeing him and he has been unbelievable. Only issue is his nurse is not great and getting an appointment is horrible. He is very good when it comes to handling your disease. He is understanding, kind, very smart, and he listens to you without making you feel dumb or belittled. Probably one of the best neurologist in the Richmond area.

He is a good doctor but his office is a mess and you cant get to him when he is on hospital rounds you cant talk with him. I think after the first of the year I am changing insurance while I dont have to be in a network I am changing doctors as well

This man might be a brilliant doctor but he definitely has one of the poorest run practices that I have ever seen. I had an appointment and he set me up for a sleep study. After a week I had heard nothing so I called and left message. No return call, so called again 2 weeks later and left message and again no returned call. 7 weeks went by and finally spoke to his nurse and she said he was on vacation but would get with me asap on return. Called again, and still no returned call, 3 months later.

I have epilepsy and called Monday morning, May 23, 2016 at 8:23 am to tell Dr Wittman and his nurse Angela I have been extremely dizzy and I needed to be seen that day. It's Thursday the 26th and I've heard nothing. I've called the office manager, Joy, and left numerous messages with no return call. The office staff is rude and the doctor doesn't feel the need to take care of his patients. I will address Dr. Whittman's negligence with the AMA and others. Please go elsewhere.

Dr Wittman is very thorough and quietly gathers information to effectively treat my migraine headaches. He listens to my symptoms and always answers all my questions and has added many modalities to thankfully treat me.

Dr. Wittman is most likely a victim of a poorly run medical practice, but he is also as personable as a brick wall. Neurological Associates could not care less about the patient experience. Better be prepared to call 3-5 times to get a Rx refill. Office hours are 9-4 PM with an hour off for lunch - good luck getting someone on the phone. For a May 4 appointment, the doctor was at a different office - I was not told. Missed the aptmt. Despite a tumor recurrence, next aptmt date was July 5.
