Dr. Whitehead is the best. I've been seen by him at both locations and he is AMAZING! I have sever neck pain and he understands how I'm feeling. I will call ahead to make sure he is working before I drive 35 minutes just to make sure I'm taking care of! I am always grateful to Dr. Whitehead for his care!

Great ortho doc. Have seen him twice and received excellent care. I had gone to another Urgent Care and couldn't even get a Xray. Discovered OrthoNeuro on the Web. Dr. Whitehead listened to me and understood that I was in pain. Xrays confirmed tears in my shoulder. Cortisone shot and a sling, I was out the door. Pain was relieved and I was so grateful! Dr. Whitehead even followed up on my injured shoulder and recommended a surgeon. A few weeks later, I went back to OrthoNeuro and was lucky to get Dr. Whitehead again. Exam and Xrays revealed tendonitis. Another Cortisone shot provided some relief. Knowing what's causing pain is half of the battle. An Urgent Care, for orthopedic issues, was new to me. Great! Ask for Dr. Whitehead. He's a keeper!

Robert D. Whitehead, M.D, Head Doctor in Orthopedic at OrthoNeuro Urgent Care, in Columbus, Ohio is a wonderful caring Doctor. It is so important to have such an experienced doctor treat you with a swollen knee and know what’s wrong with it and how to treat it. The staff and nurses were friendly and caring. I am happy with the experience. Sincerely, Diane Lynn Trout

I saw Dr. Whitehead at OrthoNeuro Urgent Care for a herniated disc in my back. He was thorough, personable and even showed me my xray film while explaining the issue. I would recommend him and OrthoNeuro Urgent Care to anyone in need of such services.

Came to OrthoNeuro as a walk-in in their Olentangy office. Wait was not long - I wa sin excruciating pain. Dr. Whitehead looked at me immediately, got me into x-ray quickly, and diagnosed my problem with exceptional sharing of information. He also ordered a pain shot right in the office, and I was so happy! He sent me home with instructions, meds, exercises and more. He was thorough, kind, treated me with utmost respect and care, and shared information, including next steps. Great experience!
