I was referred to Dr Witte for a consult before a surgery. First time I had been to this clinic or to see Dr Witte. Was nervous about the visit but certainly didn't need to be. He was friendly, interested and gave me good information regarding the testing I had taken. The staff that compiled preliminary information and did the testing were also very professional, respectful and helpful. I would not hesitate to see Dr Witte in the future if the need arose.
