“Megan was especially lovely. I got told, several years ago, that my pain wasn’t treatable. That, because I was so fat, they were unable to make a diagnosis regarding my back, neck, and shoulder pain. She comforted me and gave me a Kleenex. Dr. Whitaker and his nurse were professional, knowledgeable, concise, and kind. Thank you!”

“Very professional office staff. I loved the way Dr. Whitaker explained what was causing the pain. He used a hands-on model of back vertebrae and disks and held it over the X-ray/MRI picture to make it easier to see the problem.

“Dr. Whitaker performed some very major surgery on my lower back. I could not be more pleased with the results. I have suffered from very severe sciatic nerve pain on both sides for over two years. My pain scale was about 7 to 9 always. My pain after surgery is 0 to 1. Dr. Whitaker has given me a great deal of help after surgery with excellent post-op advice and continuing care. This was my 4th back surgery and the 1st with Dr. Whitaker. From now forward, he will be the only doctor to care for my back. I have never been so pleased with the surgery outcome and would rate him and his complete staff as "the very best."”
