“Dr. Whitman performed bilateral knee replacement surgeries on me in January. The care I received pre-op, post-op and in follow-up has been nothing less than excellent. Dr. Whitman took all the time needed with each visit before and in followup to evaluate me and answer my questions. He never gave me the impression that he was in a hurry to get through seeing me get to the next patient. The results that I have had from the surgery have been above and beyond what I was hoping for. I now have pain free knees and have even been able to resume playing tennis. Whenever anyone tells me they are considering knee replacement surgery, I understand them that Bristol Regional Hospital has an excellent 'knee and hip joint replacement' program and that my surgeon, Dr. Whitman, is outstanding.”

“I have always appreciated Dr. Whitman’s professionalism kindness and honesty with me. He had done a previous surgery on me and advised me on measures to try before opting for surgery which I did. He said I would know when it was time and he was right never pushed me into operation. I appreciated that. When the time came, he had prepared me as to what to expect and the therapy needed to be able to function as well as I did before the knee replacement. I followed his instructions and never regretted having the surgery. I give full credit to God and a Godly man performing my operation He was accommodating with my recent visit and assured me he would be there to help whenever the time came for him to help me. I would also like to say his nurse is one of the best. Always on top of things and as helpful as Dr. Whitman is. Thank you.”

He told me in the beginning if I did all that he required that I wouldn’t have a problem. You would never know I’d had knee surgery unless I told you. Great job, well done. He really cares about patients.”
