Dr. Renae Witt's Ratings
Excellent in surgical skills & bedside manner. Several months ago I broke my ankle and looked arduously for a doctor I could trust, Dr.Witt was highly referred by my primary care physician at Hoag.
I have almost made full recovery & return to triathlon training after several more months of physical therapy. Highly recommend.
DrWitt performed surgery on myself & my husband after 2 car accidents. Pleased to say she is one of the BEST surgeons we've ever seen. Highly skilled, well trained, excellent bedside manner, & didn't charge us what the insurance companies cheated her for reimbursement. While it's sad to see some (few) of the population really understands how little health care "ins co's" pay (or not), it's lovely knowing this wonderful doctor provides Gold Standard Care. Too bad so many people love her medical/surgical skills. But then degrade her based on their not being educated on How Their Insurance pays. These folks are cheap, petty, & uneducated.. Especially when I've witnessed them pulling up to her offices in cars that cost more than my house! Kudos to DrWitt, keep up the great work, know how my family & I APPRECIATE you!! Please Ignore Any financial complaints based on people's ignorance, lack of education, & overall greed.
Dr. Witt is a caring, well-educated, patient focused physician. She is always personable and I know puts the health and welfare of her patterns first. She is extremely knowledgable in her field and I have been very pleased with the care I have received from her. I would not hesitate to recommended her to a friend or colleague.
Dr. Renae Witt was referred to me by a friend of mine, although I'm not a skeptic I took the initiative to call & schedule a consultation with her just to see how she worked & dealt with her practice. She is very serious & is ever so generous with the patients she examines. Right off the bat she could tell that I ran frequently, explaining to me how my bone structure, muscles, joints had all given it away, I was impressed. Afterwards her staff as well wasted no time in getting to know who I was which left me feeling comfortable. A week later I took a trip to the lake, of course brought my running shoes, one morning went running & mid way my foot had landed a little too hard& funky upon some gravel/debris. Quickly made an apt for when I returned & kept off my foot the rest of the trip. My ankle was fine just needed some physical therapy but she noticed my skin was darker & few sunspots had begun to appear, tested my skin for melanoma I was ever grateful. She is now my podiatrist
After a skiing accident, Dr.Witt repaired several ligaments in my previously damaged ankle. Not only was her bedside manner impeccable, her surgical skills are meticulous & first rate. Dr.Witt also performed an arthroscopic clean up of the same ankle where other surgeons were possibly recommending fusion. After many months in physical therapy & the trusted guidance of this fantastic foot & ankle doc, I have returned to full weight bearing with cardio workouts. I am eternally grateful for her superb medical & surgical skills. HIGHLY RECOMMEND *** Thank You Dr.Witt & Staff
Highly recommend this doctor, very intelligent & savvy in her field of specialty. Where other physicians rush through visits, Dr.Witt really covers all medical advancements by taking her time & is keen on all current foot & ankle conditions as well as a fantastic bedside manner. I am a CEO of a larger OC based company, with this in mind.. Dr.Witt subscribes to the highest level of integrity and professionalism. I wish there was more of her in this world. She will be taking care of myself & my family for years to come. See for yourself...
A Five Star doctor in every way!! (actually one of the best). Dr.Witt took the time & is extremely knowledgeable in her specialty. I chose her to perform heel spur removal surgery with repair of my Achilles Tendon due to her attention to detail & many excellent referrals from friends & family. This kind & compassionate doctor also waived my pre-surgical fees (I highly doubt any negative feedback). Wonderful physician & really cares for her patients. Fully recommend.
Ranae Witt is rude, incompetent, and egotistical. She failed to send a sample of a laceration I had on my foot to Pathology -- after telling me she suspected it was a melanoma (she was wrong on her diagnosis). She was also over 45 minutes late for our scheduled appointment, and never bothered to apologize. Instead, she kept telling me that insurance companies did not monetarily compensate her enough for her to pay for her $500,000 education from the Univ. of San Francisco. Don't waste your time on this egotistical, shady, extremely vain individual who as a podiatrist is mediocre, at best. Instead seek help from one of the numerous doctors out there who treat their patients with respect, dignity, and as equals.
My issue is with her billing practices. She is a member of both the PPO plans that I have and yet required me to pay up front. I willingly did that as she explained that the "boot" may not be covered. However, her "biller" did not bill my claim and it has been a month. Additionally, I spoke with my insurance company who confirmed she was not to bill up front, as she is a member and the boot is a covered service. When I called to discuss with her, she did not return my calls. Finally when I got her on the phone, she was rude, told me to wait 30-45 days as insurenace takes that long. When I told her that I saw a different specialist AFTER my visit with her and the claim was processed already she was mad. Not very professional. Clearly only concerned about money and basically stated she has overhead and is too busy to deakl with my call.
Dr. Witt seems knowledgeable but she billed for foot X-rays that don't exist. Also, there is no way all of her 5 star reviews here were written by actual patients. I think it's a shame because it seems like she'd be a good foot doctor otherwise. I'm now the proud owner of a box full of random foot care products that I probably don't really need.
