I am a patient of Dr. Wittman's. I find he is a great listener, answers all the questions asked, is very knowledgeable and comes prepared for the appointment. His nurse, Sarah, is very sweet and helpful. Also, I have gotten a quick turn-around time on phone messages and prescription refills. I would refer any friends and family who needed a neurologist to Dr. Wittman.

I liked Dr.Wittman instantly, he took his time listening to me during my first visit with him and made sure to answer each and every question I had, some doctors come in the exam room and go as quick as they can to go to the next patient but not Dr.Whittman he took his time, that’s what we need all doctor’s to do, to see us as a human being and not a paycheck.

Dr. Wittman has always taken as much time as I need at my appointments. He is extremely patient when giving me options for other medications and answering questions I may have about new drugs, etc. He has never appeared to be in any hurry to rush through my appointment. This is greatly appreciated!!

This was probably the most pleasant medical appointment I have ever experienced from beginning to end. The reception staff was very pleasant and personable. The office atmosphere was calming, clean and beautifully decorated. Being a person of faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, it was refreshing to find a Bible in the waiting room area! The nursing staff was very friendly and put me at ease. Dr. Wittman was very pleasant and mild mannered. He puts you at ease with his quiet voice and calm presence. He explained my test result and all of the options moving forward. He answered all of my questions and did not seem as though he was in a hurry to get to the next patient.
