I have had 2 knee replacements and a back surgery with Dr. Witham. They have all been good. I value his opinion and he takes time to ask, is very considerate and kind. Every body is different so what may happen to one doesn't necessarily apply to another. He is a very good doctor.

He spent little time with me and didn't order an MRI even though I had classic severe symptoms of a herniation at L5-S1. He told me I would be fine. After 4 more months of numbness and pain I found another doctor in Anchorage who operated immediately. However, it was too late and now I have permanent numbness and paralyzation of my lower leg. This could have been prevented if treated when I first saw Dr. Witham. If you value your health, stay away from this "doctor" and find someone else.

Dr. Witham is quiet and does not offer a lot of detail unless patient asks questions. About two years ago I experienced pain in buttocks and had MRI. Dr. W reviewed MRI with me and did not recommend any procedure at that time. By two months ago I was experiencing serious pain in buttocks and left leg. New MRI was compared to old one and showed significant increase of intrusion at L4-L5. Surgery performed a week later resulting in total loss of pain, incision pain gone a week later.Rotator cuff surgery three years ago was successful with a good experience regarding all categories above.

I had a minor complication resulting from surgery. He claimed it had nothing to do with his surgery, wouldn't examine it and wouldn't do anything to treat it, saying there was no problem. I had to go to a physical therapist on my own to help resolve it.I also had an unrelated serious joint problem that that was causing me pain and I had asked him repeatedly about. He wouldn't examine it and without examining it said it was nothing to worry about. I gave up on him and saw another doctor who examined my range of motion, asked what motions caused the pain, and took xrays/mri and found serious damage and fixed the problem.
