Dr Whitehurst was very professional and showed concern about my injury and the progress needed to restore my shoulder. Everyone I dealt with at Orthoillinois appeared knowledgeable, professional and friendly. I was very impressed with my initial meeting/appointment .

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.
