Dr. Whitfield’s Philosophy Statement
Choosing to have surgery is a major life choice. I have personally been involved in helping make decisions about surgery since 1996. For each and every patient I want to help them understand any procedure they may have as well as let them know if they are a good candidate for that procedure. Patient safety is incredibly important and at the forefront each surgical decision. After spending so many years training and practicing I only try to provide the safest and most appropriate surgical care.
