Excellent bedside manner. I felt like he really cared about what was wrong with me AND what I wanted to get back to, ie: running, climbing, biking with my kids, and he asked about my work and was concerned about my day to day needs. What a great doctor and person. I'm feeling better already! Thank-you Dr. Whitlow!!

I went in expecting this surgery to enable me to continue working. I was assured no problem after 3-4 months. Well 5 months in and I can't walk let alone work on my feet all day! Refuses to listen to anything negative, refused to help me get disability. Now I'm pennyless, not capable of working with no help from ROC.

Dr Whitlow is the best Dr I have seen in years. He was so very caring and understanding of my situation. He performed two surgeries on me and each time he listened to exactly what my concerns were and talked everything out with me. His background and schooling is very impressive to say the least. I would highly recommend him! Thank you Dr Whitlow for allowing me the oppportunity to walk again.

Dr. Whitlow is a very wonderful doctor. Others brushed off my concerns. He did more. He did my surgery and was very courteous when answering questions and concerns.
