DIEP Flap Breast Reconstruction - Austin, TX

Dr. Whitfield put me at ease immediately under some very sensitive circumstances. I had complete confidence in his extensive expertise and can-do attitude, and appreciated his consideration and concern for me and my health issues. I ESPECIALLY appreciated his effort to explain my condition/progress to my children before and after my surgery. As far as I am concerned, Dr. Whitfield is second to none and tops in my book!

Dr. Whitfield Should Be Your FIRST Choice As a Surgeon! Be Very Wise in Your Choice of a Doctor! Austin, TX

Dr. Whitfield in short summary was very educated, calm, professional, diagnostically accurate and a very skilled surgeon. He was very compassionate, listened well, explained well and overall was there for me during every step, question, etc. He was at my bedside(with great bedside manners) before surgery, upon awakening and during each follow up visit. Almost all of my office visits were with him seeing me, not someone else. He was very attentive to details, outcome and aftercare of my multiple surgeries for breast cancer reconstruction. He has always followed me up with personal phone calls to see how I was doing...even when I was back home in Kansas City. I will only choose Dr. Whitfield for any future needs if they arise. He can be trusted with your surgical needs.

52-year-old Mother of 3, DIEP Flap Reconstruction--SO Happy with the Results! - Austin, TX

I couldn't be happier with my DIEP results or with my choice of surgeons. I knew from my first appointment that I had made the right choice. Dr. Whitfield clearly explained both the DIEP and implants procedures in terms my husband and I could understand. I've been his patient for about nine months and have learned a few things: he cares passionately about his patients and wants us to have the best possible outcome. He is a perfectionist and an artist. He is warm, personable, and fun…there have been times I’ve had to remind myself that I was in his office because I had cancer…what a gift he gives to his patients to be able to help them forget that for even a few minutes! Dr. Whitfield can generally control what happens in the OR but can’t control how a patient’s body will respond or how a patient behaves during recovery. He is human; he gets understandably frustrated when things don’t go as planned or when a patient doesn’t follow his advice but his bedside manner is exemplary. He is amazingly gifted and my reconstructed body is evidence of that! One of the many blessings that have come from my cancer journey has been the privilege of getting to know him. I will be forever grateful to Dr. Whitfield and his excellent, compassionate staff and have and will continue to recommend him to anyone facing breast cancer reconstruction.
