Dr. Whitley and Dr. Quinney recently performed surgery on my 14 y/o for thoracic outlet syndrome. These doctors are the best and cared for my son like he was their own.

Dr Whitley performed surgery on our daughter who suffered from Thoracic Outlet Syndrome for two years. Dr. Whitley did a wonderful surgery. Our daughter is now pain-free. Such a blessing.

He is extremely professional and a silled surgeon! I was always treated with respect and compassion by Dr. Whitley and his entire staff. I've since moved out of state and only wish my current vascular surgeon was as knowledgable a surgeon.

I have had two surgeries with Dr Whitley. The most recent being my right carotid having plaque removed. I have total confidence in Dr. Whitley and trust in his diagnosis and his ability as a surgeon. Would not use anyone else.
