Specialties

Dr. Hendricks H Whitman III has the following 2 specialties

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Rheumatology

    A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
    Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.

I have been a patient of Dr. Whitman's for perhaps 15 years. He is a very compassionate man with an amazing wealth of knowledge. He has moved to HSS in NY and I have tried to find a replacement for him in NJ and been to several Rheumatologists in my area and cannot find one as good and caring as Dr. Whitman. So I continue to travel to the city to visit him once or twice a year. My RA is under control without the help of injectable drugs that it seems is the new trend in treatment. He has made my life so much better. Highly recommend him!

Mrs.

You have a OLD summary of Dr. H.H. Whitman, III - he retired from The Summit Medical Group over a year ago, and is teaching in The Hospital For Special Surgery and also seeing Patients there. I happen to go to him. He is a 5 star doctor, very caring for his patients, loves to be a doctor BECAUSE HE CARES, not about the money, its about caring about people. He's been my doctor for at least 30 yrs. and I still see him. Correct your write up where he is practicing. Not accurate or up to date. He also goes by his first name as Hal W. Whitman, III. He graducated from Harvard Medical School.

Two Stars

I think he is an informative Doctor. However, his staff is questionable. Very rude, can't relay information correctly. He needs better staff a.s.a.p or else he will lose patients.

Worst doctor I ever saw.

I had an appt with Dr. Whitman when I was experiencing severe joint pain. When I told him my symptoms, he said, "I have many patients worse off than you." I found his manner rude. After a few visits and blood tests he couldn't figure out what was wrong with me, so I found another doctor who helped me. I ended up having rheumatoid arthritis.
