    There was a mix up with my appointment; there was no record that I had one. I have been waiting for this appointment for over a month and had been in a lot of pain. Everyone, from the front desk woman to the NP to the dr, was so kind and professional. They were able to get me in and able to fit in the procedure. I can’t thank you all enough.

    I have been using Dr Whittinberg since 2007. I don’t let anyone else touch my back unless she recommends them I have also seen the PAs there [...] and they’re awesome. They always take the time to not only talk but to listen to my problem that day. They are encouraging and I just wouldn’t want to use anyone else. They’re all great. Thank y’all for being there for u s during this time
