I found my experience with Dr. Whitbeck to be one of the worst experiences ever with any physician I had been to. Total lack of concern. Unwilling to listen to my concerns, and total disregard for the opinion of a nerve conduction specialist, whose results were identical to the opinion of his PA, on my first visit there. Told me basically, that I had nothing of major concern wrong and there was nothing he could do for me and pretty much "shoved me out the door". Totally unprofessional.

I had a fragmented piece of herniated disc in my neck. This was pressing against the nerve bundle on my spine. Dr. whitbeck removed the fragment. This was 4 weeks ago. I no longer have numbness in my arm and the headaches I had for 24 years are gone. I am still recovering from the surgery and have pain from where the muscles and tissue were cut through, but feel like a new woman after suffering for so long. I am very pleased with the outcome of my surgery.

I saw the PA at first who told me I would see the doctor after she talked with him. The MRI clearly showed the disc pressing against the spinal cord. She came back and said surgery wouldn't help with any of my pain or symptoms. I can't believe he said that while other surgeons stated the opposite. Glad he's not doing the surgery!
