Ratings for Dr. Melvin D. Whitfield
Dr Whitfield opened me up in November of 2013 for a multilevel fusion. In my post operative interview Dr Whitfield described a "Perfect Fusion" that didn't need the Titanium he had used but he inserted them for safety sake, After Christmas with NO physical therapy ordered by Dr Whitfield, I was in so much pain that my Primary Dr. Sent me for a full MRI Series to the same company that had done the pre-op MRIs for Dr Whitfield. Imagine my surprise when the radiologist asked me "What the heck happened to you?" not only was there no titanium in my back..There was a failed discectomy and no attempt at fusion. Insurance and law enforcement agencies were alerted as he had billed and charted Fusion Surgery and Titanium Implants! He was Dismissed for CAUSE by Holy Cross Hospital and Raced to that hotbed of Malpractice MIAMI to do it to other patients! I wouldn't let this idiot touch my family pet!
Dr. Whitfield performed a bilateral craniotomy on my 80 year old grandmother in August of 2010 and she is now doing fantastic! Dr Whitfield and his nurse, Angela are amazing and exceptionally caring. THE BEST!! Thank you so much for treating her so well.
