I was treated by Dr. Whiddon for about 5 years. My condition was valvular insufficiency and he treated me primarily with sclerotherapy guided by venous doppler. The treatment was very effective at eliminating the spontaneous rupturing of blood vessels (which I experienced 10-15 times prior to his treatment). Dr. Whiddon is an exceptionally caring and careful doctor. I would keep on seeing him now except that he's not on my insurance.

I recently saw DR Whiddon for treatment to veins under my eyes and on top of my cheek bone. Two days later I already see great results! I know this will continue to improve. He is very detail oriented. I recommend him!

December 1, 1998, Dr Widdon operatedon my Aorta, replacing the Aortic Valve and Upper Aortic Loop. My experience was as nearly perfect as it could possibly be. The entire team was as professional and caring as possible. I have had no negative situations in the area the Doctor worked on over the past 17 years. Although, Dr Whiddon is in another area of medical work today, I know he will only continue his excellent performance.
