FAQ’s About Dr. Whitaker

FAQs About Dr. Whitaker

When I search for Dr. Whitaker on the Internet, some negative things come up. Why is that?

There’s an old saying that goes something like this: Stand up for what you believe in, even if it means standing alone. Dr. Whitaker’s holistic, drug-free approach to wellness has made him a target for conventional medicine practitioners and proponents because he is vocal about being at odds with the entrenched paradigm of relying on prescription drugs and pushing for expensive surgeries. He knows from more than 30 years of clinical experience that the safe, natural therapies successfully used at the Whitaker Wellness Institute truly help patients achieve optimal health. He is very passionate about what he does, and with passion often comes controversy.

What if my doctor has never heard of Dr. Whitaker or doesn't support my decision to come to the Whitaker Wellness Institute?

More often than not, conventional doctors aren’t well-versed in the nutritional and supplemental side of medicine. Furthermore, they typically know little about alternative therapies. Because of this, your current physician may be reluctant to support such treatments. Arm yourself with the information on this website, print out the articles (complete with references) from the therapies and health concerns pages, and help educate him/her on our wellness approach. Be prepared to be met with resistance.

Even if your doctor doesn’t support your decision, sometimes you need to stand up for your own health. If your health hasn’t improved by going the conventional route, what’s the harm in giving the Whitaker Wellness Institute a shot? Though we don’t like being considered a “last resort,” some patients are unwilling to make the leap of faith to come see us until they have been completely failed by conventional medicine.

I want Dr. Whitaker to be my doctor at the clinic. Is this possible?
