My Approach to Care

My primary interest is in preventative cardiology so I’m paradoxically trying to put myself out of business. Being a good cardiologist, you not only have to take the time to understand the disease mechanism, but also listen to people and tailor the care to an individual, because when you’re the person who is in the exam room, you want to know what is happening with you as an individual. Spending time working with people to reduce their risk, that’s the art and that’s the goal of what we do.

Dr. Whitney is an excellent doctor, both in his knowledge and in his people skills. He is such a busy man but always acts like he has no place else to be except right there in the office visiting with the patient he is seeing. He is always so positive and friendly and I appreciate him and feel lucky to have him for my cardiologist!

This is the greatest care group in Lincoln. I was in a panic with a pounding heart and had convinced myself that I would receive bad news from Dr. Whitney. To my surprise I was able to see him within an hour and was assured I would be fine with a medication he provided to me. Love this group of doctors!!

The provider was awesome, I like the fact that he spends time to the patient and where there is a problem, he comes up with a solution. I did not have a PCP as I just moved to Lincoln a couple of months ago and he found me one. I thank him very much for doing that for me.
