Doctor never spoke to me or family before or after surgery

Was refused pain meds after radical resection due to incompetent communication between the variety of NP and PA’s. Never saw the doctors face once before or after my surgery. Discharged in pure pain, I am 35 and have stage IV cancer and this guy couldnt take five minutes out to speak to me or my family. My wife still doesn’t know what he even looks like. His NP then claimed my wife agrees I didn’t need pain medicine though she called advocating the opposite

Five Stars

I was recommend to see Dr. James Wittig from a doctor who practiced in another hospital in the area. When I called Dr. Wittig's office I was told that he was not in my network. Since he was highly recommended I thought I would go for the initial visit and consultation. After speaking with him I knew that this is the doctor I needed to remove a tumor from my shoulder. There are only two doctors in New Jersey that are Oncologist Orthopedics. I did not want to go to the city and I am so glad that I didn't. I felt a great deal of confidence in his abilities and his staff. Subsequent visits have proved my initial feelings correct. Not only did Dr. Wittig perform incredible surgery he recommended an outstanding Oncologist from the John Theurer Cancer Center. When you go through the journey of having cancer your doctors and their staff become just as important to you as family. Every time I go for my follow up check ups I am hugged by Helen his nurse. She has taken many of my phone calls and has always eliminated my anxiety. The front desk staff has also been a great support, and at the end of the day, due to their caring and competent knowledge all procedures have been covered by my insurance. I highly recommend Dr. James Wittig for his compassion to patients at a most difficult time in their life and for his unique skills. Karen G.

Dr. Wittig is a gifted surgeon

I was told by oncologists the mass resting on my nerve was not likely to be cancerous. They were wrong. Dr. Wittig removed the mass and 10 days later gave me the bad news; cancer. He took control and 2 days later removed the nerve, sheath and margins. Along with Drs. Pecora and Ingenito, my "team" devised a plan for winning with Dr. Wittig at quarterback. I am most confident for success going forward.

Everyday I thank God for this man

I wholehearted echo the wonderful sentiment others have posted on Dr. Wittig. My 19 year old son was away at college was a lesion was discovered after his was complaining of knee pain. The moment he called me and told me he was told to see an oncologist I went into action/panic mode. Going to dpctors appointments, making calls. We found our way to Dr. Wittig and within 10 minutes of the initial meeting I knew this my son was in the best hands. Dr. Wittig was extremely kind and thorough in his explanations and his whole staff very patience and supportive. I thank God for this skilled and compassionate surgeon. I have every confidence in him and trust him completely with the care of my son.
