she did not listen to the reasons why certain things were with my child....the underlying problems that she ignored and continued to assume things. it took her VERY LONG to come to the room. we didn't see here till nearly 1 1/2 hours AFTER we we're supposed to be there.

Dr. Witchel is great had been my daughter's doctor since she was about a week old. Not only great at her professional but is a great person. Wouldn't want anyone else treating my daughter.

Dr. Selma Witchel provides excellent care for our daughter who has a rare genetic disease. She is not only knowledgeable about the condition, but is willing to go above and beyond to ensure she receives appropriate care. She is also very patient in listening to my questions and answering them thoroughly. I don't know what we'd do without her care!
