A Dr. who is highly professional and 20 years of experience. He diagnosed my medical condition and helped me get the referral I needed and expertise as the solution to my problem. His staff Diane and Brooklyn who is an exceptional administrative specialist helped me get through a roadblock with my insurance and without her I wouldn't get approval in time for my CT PET scan tomorrow to take a copy of the CD to the specialist who uses robotic surgery to remove cancer. Thank you!

Absolutely no. Something doesn’t feel right... Doesn’t have the demeanor that says he can be trusted. Explains things well, but is he honest or exaggerating? Anything good I can say is the office staff and it reflects the ratings he and his staff has already in Health grades. They are making up for him. The guy would walk into the room and wouldn’t even say hello or look at the patient before starting the conversation...

Dr. Whitaker charged me over $600.00 out of pocket for a 10 minute visit. Bragged about how he could "blow through" my insurance deductible with his procedure. I will never see this doctor again, and definitely would not recommend to anyone. Poor medical practice.
