Dr. Whitson is a blessing

I'll never forget the intense pain that woke me up years ago and scared me to death. My husband called Dr. Whitson and he came out in the middle of the night to give me an injection and said that I should see him the next day. I slept peacefully after that and went to his office the next day. He diagnosed it as endometriosis and performed a partial bi-lat oophorectomy. He has always taken time to listen to me and I always feel confident that I am in good hands. He has walked me through many medical issues and I am blessed to have him as my doctor.
