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!

we waited almost 3 hrs to see the Dr. the Dr listened to what I had to say but didn't take what I had to say into consideration when making a decision about my daughter medication.

Dr Witchell and Erika Mcann have been absolutely wonderful with my son. They make his very serious and potentially life threatening condition manegable. They have always answered all of my questions and have taken excellent care of my son. We are blessed to have them as part of his medical team!
