What People Say About Dr. Mark Whitaker, MD

I had a spinal fusion with Dr Whiraker in 2015. . I feel like he should've gave more a information on recovery time and outcome of surgery! At visits after surgery he and the PA acted as though I wasn't in as much pain as I said I was! Two yrs after surgery I'm still have bad nerve pain and I'm sent for an epidermal injection and if that fails his next recommendation is a wire in my back??? Ummmm NO...I'm now seeing another surgeon for a second opinion...I think I've lost trust somewhere.

My husband had a 2 level lumbar fusion one year ago. Whitaker always seemed to rush through the appointments without really explaining what the surgery entailed, didn't answer questions, and gave very vague post op instructions. After the procedure he quit caring at all. he treated my husbands reoccurring post op pain like it was fake. Ended up going to see Dr. Grundmeyer where we were treated amazing and found out he had stenosis that needed another surgery.
