I had a horrible breast reconstruction with another surgeon in the area and Dr. Wittenborn gave me the results I was looking for. His office staff is friendly and the wait time is acceptable.

I had a Bilaterial Breast Lift. I was nervous about the procedure, however every step of the way Dr Whittenborn and Staff reassured me that I would be fine. Dr Whittenborn and his staff went above and beyond caring for me before and after surgery . My Surgery went great and had very little pain. Now relieved of my 35+ years of neck and back pain I can resume a normal active lifestyle. Thank you Dr Whittenborn and staff for being the best at what you do!

I would consider referring this doctor because he goes the extra mile with his patients. He is calm and reassuring. He explains what he is doing and why. He has a knowledgeable hand and somehow gives the air about him that you know he is capable in what he is doing. I trust this doctor with the knife over my wounds even though it may hurt a bit. When he smiles at you it makes you feel that it will be alright.
