Patient Reviews & Testimonials for Idaho Joint and Spine & Dr James Whitaker:
FANTASTIC Doctor & Staff
Not sure that words are going to do this justice. After spending a month in excruciating pain from a herniated disc and continuously feeling like I wasn’t getting the help I needed, my path finally crossed with Dr. Whitaker. He is immensely knowledgeable in his field and took the time to explain everything that was going on with my injury. But more than that, Dr. Whitaker made me a priority. He truly cares and is in my opinion a truly exemplary doctor. I am optimistic about my recovery now, thanks to him.
My primary care physician referred me to Dr Whitaker to help treat the migraine headaches I’ve had for years. He spent a lot of time with me asking questions and getting info. He explained all the resources available and we started treatment on the first visit. He seems very caring, he listens and is very resourceful. His office staff are so nice and helpful and I never wait long in the waiting room. It’s so refreshing to find a doctor like Dr Whitaker.
I really like seeing Doctor Whitaker for my migraines, he is caring, listens well, and will work with you to find a solution.
Dr. Whitaker is very thorough. Asked many questions. Found things I didn’t know I had, and offered me ways to correct them. Gave his findings to my primary doctor so he wasn’t kept out of the loop. I have only had a few visits but I feel so much better. I will be returning for my follow-ups. My home exercises are appropriate, and really helps as long as you do them. He is so much more than just a chiropractor. He is definitely the next step up. I highly recommend him. Very Skilled. Not only is he a nice guy, he is a good man. Thank you Dr. Whitaker.
Best docs I’ve seen...
Dr. Whitaker is one of the best docs I’ve seen. His hands-on skills are outstanding, and he is an asset to his osteopathic profession. He helped me with my persistent neck and back pain and showed me techniques I could use to stay healthy and active. Thank you, Dr. Whitaker!
I trust my patients to him
I am a chiropractor/nurse practitioner. I see a lot of patients with chronic neck back and hip pain. When I have exhausted all I can do, I love knowing that I can send them to Dr Whitaker and he will get them results. He takes the hard cases for me and makes them look easy. My patients love him.
He knows his spines!
I’ve been to two chiropractors and four massage therapists and just assumed that I would have back pain my entire life. Dr. Whitaker adjusted me no more than three times and now I don’t even think about my back. It doesn’t flare up anymore, it doesn’t disable me anymore. I don’t know how he does it, but he knows his spines!
