I went to see Dr. Whitten for an EMG for chronic leg and lower back pain. Having been diagnosed with other major health issues, I was very apprehensive about seeing yet another doctor for MORE tests. Dr. Whitten was WONDERFUL! The minute he walked into the room, he put me at ease. He responded to all my concerns and issues with compassion and kindness. He thoroughly explained each step of the test as he performed it, and made sure I was comfortable throughout. After the test, Dr. Whitten took the time to respond to all my concerns, and offered ways to help with pain management. He truly cared about my well-being. After following his recommendations, I feel like I have gotten my life back! This doctor was truly amazing! He is definitely one of the best doctors I have ever seen!! THANK YOU, DR. WHITTEN!!
