Patient Comments (1)
in Boise Id 83702 |
Dr.Tara Whitaker did not want to treat me as her patient to begin with with. It takes a caring compassionate physician to treat to someone with depression. The third time she had "gotten busy and forgot my medication" I was done.. This was her way of getting rid of me. Sadly her notes have left me with no PCP.No neurosurgeons St Lukes will even schedule me. 2 staff at different locations were honest enough to tell me I won't get care in Ada County.
Dear Tracy, I sincerely apologize for your experience and if you are still struggling to find care, I want to assure you that my staff and I are committed to helping you in any way that we can. If you are still in the area and would like to discuss this further at any time, I would be more than happy to assist you. Best, Dr. Whitaker and staff and Capital City Family Medicine
