Jay Wittenkeller saved my life. Not only that, but he has the absolute BEST bedside manner ever. I knew the moment he walked into my hospital room that I was going to be all right. He has no pretensions, and never talks down to you. Not only that, but he's an outstanding physician and clinician. I've never had a doctor that listened better or treated me as well, and I've had a LOT of doctors! If you need an Oncologist, then you need Dr. Jay Wittenkeller! He will do everything in his power to save your life, and make the process as easy and painless as possible. I've never met a better doctor, despite my health being bad for the past 20 years. I'd trust him with my life all over again, any time. If you have cancer, then you need Dr. Wittenkeller! He WILL do everything possible to save your life, and the quality of life under treatment.
Helen Bonser is not only my counselor ( when I can afford ) but has turned out to be a close friend as well. Due to privacy issues, I don't know how many others she has helped, but did cross paths with one, recenlty that agreed with me - she's awesome. Now working from a home setting, you feel immediately at your ease, and when the session is over, you wonder where the time went - lol Sadly, with my new work schedule, and insurance issues, I am unable to see her as often as needed/wanted. This leaves a large hole in my life, and progress with my issues. My best goes out to her, and husband Tom, as I know they are facing issues of their own, and just hope that somewhere along the way, I can return at least a few of the many favors they have given me!
Dr. Burns is very approachable. It is like talking with someone you immediately click with but then she points things out that shows she really heard what you said. When she told me about treatment options I realized she knew her stuff. I asked her about meds my sister takes and she explained the why other options were better for me and why the medication alone was selling myself short. I see Dr. Burns for medication and talk therapy and I really like her. The office is really nice and very discrete. I like the private waiting room and the fact that I do not have to see other people I might know. Overall I'd say Dr. Burns is a really good psychiatrist.
