Patient Comments (2)
Dr. Whitaker is an outstanding person and physician. He takes the time to get to know his patients and is compassionate in the care he delivers. I would highly recommend Dr. Whitaker!
in Grandview, MO |
I have been a patient of Dr. Whitaker for approx 15 years. He is without a doubt the best physician I have had in my entire life. I'm 61 years old, and I have gone through quite a few doctors. He is VERY thorough, has a hands-on approach, asks lots of questions, and clearly explains symptoms and treatment. At the end of every visit he always stresses the importance of proper diet, exercise, and a healthy lifestyle. When he retires, it will be difficult to find someone comparable to replace him.
