Felt like the dr. was a bit in a hurry. He needs to pause after a question or several sentences.


it would have been nice to have more that a few minutes. it was way too rushed.


I would definitely recommend this provider


Dr. Witwer is very knowledgeable and pleasant to talk to,


I really liked Dr. Witwer's friendly personality. He made me feel relaxed immediately and also I really liked that he has a sense of humor and is not all "stuffy."
