One Star

Dr. Whitaker did surgery on my face for a basil cell carcinoma. He never saw me before the surgery, never discussed my surgery with me. When I phoned his nurse to get some information I was brushed off. The surgery itself was terrible and I got an infection. I then went to another surgeon in Tucson and had 2 repair surgeries so I am all right now. I feel that I was treated very badly by Dr. Whitaker and his (inept) staff and I would NEVER rrecommend him!

Great Doctor

He is very caring and supportive. Yet busy, he is quite booked. Be prepared for that and you will be very happy with the end result.

Find someone else.

There are a lot of good docors out there, this guy isn't one of them. Do a little bit more searching and asking of friends.
