Never understood what a pain management physician did but [Dr. Witmer] was so professional as well as intelligent, I was extremely impressed. I now have a real start in managing my discomfort. Never thought it would happen. Thank you so very much for providing hope. I feel so much better already.
Dr. Witmer is obviously well experienced and capable. From the moment he walks in the room, you know that he knows what he’s talking about, and that you are in good hands. The fact he is confident we can work together to alleviate my back pain and not perform a “required” surgery suggested by another doctor, without surgery leaves me optimistic!
