I liked Dr. Whitaker instantly when I first met him. Believe me, I seen quite a few doctors in my 73 Years. You just know if a doctor really cares about your well being . I'm just sorry to see him go. I wish him the very best in his retirement!

It was mostly what I expected, but patients should be asked if taking an x-ray is ok prior to it being done. I understand it is needed and part of the process, but ask!
