Like many doctors Dr. Whitten does hold strong opinions. However, I have found him willing to listen to my point of view and try other options. I found him friendly enough, but don't expect him to chat or visit casually since he is busy. He has little time for small talk. Not to say he has a poor bed side manner just not as warm as say my grandmother's. On the plus side he is generally spot on with diagnostic work and very good at spotting potential problems before they become major ones. Sandy is his RN nurse and she handles call ins for refills. Expect them to be called in within 48 hours. Wait time is normally short. Under 15 minutes. The waiting area is nice and kept very clean. The staff is busy, but friendly and warm. They are also good about letting you know test and lab results in a timely manner. Appointments are readily available and if you need to be seem ASAP they can normally accommodate you that day (if you call early) or by the next day at the latest. I recommend him.

He never listens to you he thinks women are always wrong. It is his way or he will not even try to find out what your problem is. If a pill want cure you he will not treat you.

Dr. Whitten dislikes socialized medicine such as Medicare and unethically pushes his beliefs on his patients. He turned down my 90 y.o. grandmother for home care coverage. She had two cancer surgeries this summer. He is also rude and arrogant.

He is very arrogant and refused to accept my mother was ill. Every ailment she had he blamed on her smoking cigarettes. She went to him as she had dried blood in her ears, and he didn't even check her ears, and told her it was allergies. He is one of the most obnoxious and rudest Dr I have ever met and has no bedside manner whatsoever. He demoralized her in the way he treated her and has now made her very wary of ANY doctor. She probably wouldn't be here now if we had not insisted he bring a specialist to see her while she was in hospital.
