About Me

Care Philosophy

Dr. Whitney s interest in geriatrics was sparked by his experiences growing up in the same house with his grandmother and by several years as the primary caregiver for his own aging parents. His passion is in the promotion of the health, independence, and dignity of his patients and the role of the medical director in revolutionizing the quality of care we provided in long-term care.
