My grandson is 4 with a complex set of issues that includes a server inability to sleep. Finding help for him was challenging because of his young age and the need to find a doctor that would trust our experience, sleep logging and believe in my personal understanding of his sleep habits. I was desperate when we got the referral. I was so taken back by her understanding, commitment to help and desire to really listen that when we left the office the first time I was feeling hopeful for the first time in 3 years. He loved her, she was understanding, and we felt heard. I would recommend her without hesitation. As we continue to work with her we are a team and she is as committed to his well being as we are. I that that she can run late often, but when it's your turn she takes all the time she. I don't mind waiting for the best.
We were referred to Dr. Witmans by a the Drs in Emergency at the new Strathcona Hospital. Our son has had asthma for 12 years, he was getting ready to compete in the Alberta Summer Games and we were on a tight schedule to get him seen by Dr Witmans. There were no available appointments, as she was leaving for holidays- in talking further with her nurse, she booked us in on a day that the Dr was off. We were impressed by our first visit, they completed the lung testing and sent back into the lobby, then called into the office. She went over our son from top to bottom, through all family history and ensured she has all information. She went through the past medication regiment, and what worked and what didn't, She prescribed medication that has been successful, and has helped immensely. When she was done our son, she went through our whole family- including our younger son who is also an asthmatic (without a referral). We then went to her office for a follow up for our eldest son, she tweeked meds, ensured everything was working and asked again to check our youngest son as he had a cold, so we thought. He was actually laboured in breathing and his SPO2 sats were low, she treated him immediately in her office. We cannot express how much we are grateful for having a Dr who is as caring, compassionate and knowledgeable as she is. She has ran late on an appointment but when you are getting a Dr who is as great as her ,the wait is minor. Dr Witmas is a must for anyone who is in need of a pulmonary Dr!
We consulted Dr. Witmans with regards to my teenage daughter's long running sleep issues. She is highly knowledgeable, compassionate and she LISTENS to understand. She was the only doctor who correctly diagnosed my daughter with Narcolepsy after we had seen so so many other specialists and physicians. She strives to make herself available despite her very busy schedule, treats my daughter with dignity, respect and compassion. She is highly knowledgeable and skilled in her field and I completely trust her with my daughter's medical needs. She has achieved a great balance between high levels of expertise, compassion, empathy and honesty. If your child has a sleep issue, I don't know of a better person to take her to.
Amazing physician! Cares so much about her little patients and their families. Really dedicated to looking at the whole patient and not just the "lungs" or breathing but takes her time to look at all things and ensure everything is being looked at. Also seemed to like the challenge of getting to the bottom of things which is refreshing and so necessary. Cannot say enough good things! If you wait the day of your appointment you don't mind because she never rushes you and would have been busy doing other important things.
Awesome doctor, always willing to go the extra mile for her patient/patient family. Very knowledgeable in her field. Very caring and professional. Would recommend her to anyone looking for a doctor who still cares about patient care.
This is one of the best doctors in canada from our experience moving around the country. She displays a level of compassion and knowledge rarely seen anymore. She is one of the few people in canada who has been boarded in multiple sub specialties including sleep medicine. If it wasn't for Dr. Witmans keen ability to see what others could not, our princess would not have the life she has today. Although her clinics are busy and sometimes we had to wait a few minutes longer, it was worth it. she did not rush us, always answered our questions and believed what we told her. Dr. Witmans you were blessed with a gift and I am so thankful for that. If anyone reading this is looking for a doctor who will pour her heart and soul into finding a solution to help you or your precious little ones I hope you call dr. Witmans right away.
