I have never had a worse visit with a surgeon, and I have had plenty of those. I understand that surgeons tend to not have great interpersonal skills, but this guy was unprepared, refused to discuss prognosis or treatment options and responded to my questions as if they were stupid. He spent...more

No stars, he is not a personable doctor. He was abrupt and rude. I wasn't looking for miracles just some answers and direction to someone who could answer them.

Dr. WHITBECK and Jonathan, PA are wonderful at what they do, but their office staff is awful. They don't advocate, have compassion or take the take to speak to you. I've never had as much trouble at a doctor's office than I have here.

A man of little words but he did what he said he would. Three years of back pain gone immediately after surgery. Very competent staff gave me great care, answered all my questions. I have referred him and will continue to sing Dr Whitbeck's praises.
