Excellent Doctor
Great Doctor who took his time explaining my injury to me and the procedure to correct it. Very professional, caring and very competent. Staff is excellent as well. Being a workman's comp claim Dr. Whitehurst and his Clinical Lead, Ashley, who is also a pleasure to talk to, guaranteed his staff works with them well to speed the process along.

He always makes me feel understood and he’s never in a hurry. Today he went the extra mile by looking at my shoulder when we were dealing with my knee. He’s the top doctor. I’d never go anywhere else

Dr. Whitehurst was very thorough and helped me to understand what was really going on with my shoulder. I appreciated his knowledge and friendly demeanor. He listened to me and answered all of my questions and concerns. His staff was wonderful as well. I never felt as though I was being rushed through the appointment. I will definitely be recommending him to anyone in need of an orthopedic specialist.

Dr. Whitehurst was highly recommended to me by a fellow colleague. It didn't take long for Dr. Whitehurst to demonstrate that he is very knowledgeable and truly genuinely cares about his patients. I look forward to having my orthopedic procedures with Dr. Whitehurst and working alongside him and his staff to get my knee up and running again.

Dr. Jon, What are three things I could not do before coming to you? Along with stand from a seated position, navigate stairs, and walk with a normal gait. Now four weeks later, I can do about half the list. Thank you! Brian B.
