Dr. DeWitt is fantastic! He has done surgery for both my son and my nephew. He is funny and makes the kids feel at ease. I would recommend him to anyone who has a child

The very best! Dr. Dewitt is a highly skilled surgeon, who I wouldn't hesitate to recommend. He did a fabulous job on my son's spinal fusion surgery-which came out with a much better correction than we had expected. Dr Dewitt took time to answer all of our questions, and allowed us feel completely normal in a situation that was unusual for us. Only downside: The office staff are hard working but very busy, so I found I needed to call them twice a couple of times to get appointments scheduled.

I wish I could say my experience was good, but it was not. I didn't get past the receptionist before I decided NOT to go this office. I called the office manager 2 times to discuss my issues & I did not hear back. I ALSO, would have gladly spoken with the Dr. about my experience, but I am not even sure he knew there was an issue. I have nothing, but good things about him as a Dr., but couldn't get past his office staff to experience that piece. ;(
