I had an excellent with Dr. Whitt. His bedside manner was great. No doubt he cares about his patients and is passionate about what he does. Entire staff was great. Especially office manager Gail Benton at the Clayton location. I had extremely high anxiety and she made an effort to make me feel at ease through the whole process. She is amazing at what she does and can tell she loves her work and all the patients.

I am having the worst experience ever with their billing department. They made a mistake on my insurance information and billed me with entire care cost. Then, I try to reach them every day, but nobody picks their phone and no one responds to your message. It's been a week and I left a message to their message box including their billing department director and office adminitrators, I haven't received any call yet.

Out of all the different types of doctors I have seen in my life, Doctor Whitt is the first doctor that made me so happy that I wanted to write a review. My recent visit was my second time with him for a colonoscopy. He talked to me before and after the procedure. I'm sure they all do, but he does this in a friendly and informative way that makes you feel like he enjoys meeting with you. He has the best manner and excellent personality that makes you feel at ease. If you get the opportunity to request him, definitly do that.

We had an outstanding visit with Dr. Whitt this past Wednesday, March 6th. He possess a great deal of medical knowledge and seems willing to share this with his patients. Upon meeting him for the first time, he made my wife feel at ease and comfortable talking with him. If there was a six-star rating, we would give him that designation without hesitation!

Dr.Whitt is very thorough and never makes you feel rushed at appointments. He makes sure you understand everything he has discussed, and any options you may have for treatment, I have had one office visit and 2 procedures. Everything went as explained. The office staff always follows up the day after a procedure to be sure you are feeling well and have no more questions.

I just want to thank you and your staff for making my experience at your office a positive one. To be honest, I was not expecting to have a good experience. You and your staff, from the ladies at the check in desk to the guy wheeling me out to my car, were very friendly, courteous, and professional.

Can't speak highly enough of Dr Whitt's professional practice and his contribution of knowledge about our issues. Was very informative, logical with no fluff. We wanted honesty and straight forward answers. So proactive and genuinely concerned. Refreshing change to walk away from the doctors office feeling confident in our decisions. Bed side manners impeccable. He even helped me to the car. Class act??

I was treated with steroids and 4 infusions of Remicade for crohns disease and I don't even have it. In fact,I have no signs of IBD. After months of constant pain and weight loss I sought another opinion. Thank God I did. I was misdiagnosed and have NO signs of crohns disease or any IBD. I ended up malnourished and needing surgery for other reasons that were causing the stomach pain. I would never recommend Dr. Whitt. He doesn't listen. Also, his P.A.
