      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Whitten's Care Philosophy

      Many of my patient reviews comment specifically on the care and attention they received in my offices, from me and all of my staff.  I am very proud of that.  And also the time spent to make certain all patient questions and concerns are addressed fully.  Our biggest source of new patients over the years has always been from current patient referrals...referring family, friends and co-workers.  That says a lot.

      We value the relationships we build with our patients.

      Patients meet and spend time personally with me prior to surgery, which is not always the case in other practices.

      Sometimes patients are not good candidates for surgery.  Why is this important?  Because before performing any surgical procedure, we want each patient to have the best chance at the best visual outcome.  We are thorough in our testing and recommendations.
