MY PERSONAL REVIEW
 

 

When my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer in August of 2010 we knew everything would change. It was caught early enough that it could be cured with surgery alone! Great right....great unless you use Dr. Whiteman for reconstruction. His bedside manor is horrible, basically told my mother he would remove her breast, she would no longer have feeling there, but she would get used to it. We never left his office with a clear plan and results after each surgery always varied from what was discussed in his office. She was left with unsymmetrical breast and nipples that were awful. He took part of her good nipple (most all of it) and added it to the reconstructed side; however, the nipple was not placed correctly and ended up pointing at her arm. REALLY?!?! When asked about the issues, Dr. Whiteman always had excuses (thats normal, or your skin is too thin, etc.) She has now found another dr and has had to go through the entire process again, removing all work that Dr. Whiteman did and starting over. Do not use Dr. Whiteman for breast reconstruction.
